Casino steakhouse earns Forbes four-star ratingWritten by Staff Reports | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Hollywood Casino Toledo’s Final Cut Steak & Seafood recently proved it really is a cut above the rest as it was awarded a four-star rating by Forbes Travel Guide — the only restaurant in Ohio, Michigan or Indiana to receive that distinction.
Four-star restaurants ”impress with attentive service and exceptional facilities,” according to startle.com, the new online home of the iconic travel guide. Formerly known as the Mobil Travel Guide, Forbes Travel Guide went online via Startle in 2011, marking the last year of publication for the traditional printed guide
This year’s guide lists only 133 restaurants four-star restaurants and only 28 five-star ratings in the country.
“These are exciting restaurants with often well-known chefs who feature creative, complex foods and emphasize various culinary techniques and a focus on seasonality,” the website stated. “A highly trained dining room staff provides refined personal service.”
Earning a Forbes four-star rating has been an often-stated goal of Director of Food and Beverage Marc Guastella since the casino opened less than a year ago on May 29.
Final Cut debuted a new menu in January, featuring American Wagyu beef, cob and lobster dishes as well as appetizers like housemade tater tots and roasted bacon.
The Palace Restaurant in Cincinnati received a recommended rating, meaning it ranked just below four stars. The MGM Grand Detroit hotel and its Immerse Spa both also received four stars, the only four-star hotel and spa in the region.
