In a town where everything has to be bigger, better, and over-the-top, there's no such thing as "going back to the basics" (hint-hint, Maker's Mark).
So Mandalay Bay designed Citizens Kitchen & Bar, a new oasis of culinary comfort, to reinvent American classics as only Vegas can: spectator sport.
And that means eating challenges worthy of the Food Network: the double burger Fatty Melt and the six-person muffaletta sandwich are yours free if you eat them all by yourself.
In between eating feats, try a more laid-back lobster roll sandwich, mahi mahi taco, or 10-hour prime rib with baked meatballs. A country kitchen-style dining room of wood tables and tiled flooring provide a welcome change of pace from the sensory overload outside.
You'll be drinking like a real American, too, with craft beers and the Grey Goose and sparkling wine-infused Trendsetter.
Show up early (after partying all night) to greet a Yankee-sized breakfast of banana pancakes, sausage and biscuits, and ample Bloody Marys.
Hey, no one said being an American citizen was easy.
