Ever since last winter, select MGM Grand restaurants have been participating in a tasting menu promotion, and it looks like it’s been such a hit that the promotion has now been extended through the summer months.

From now through August 30, you can dine at ten of the resort’s best restaurants on a special Summer 2009 Tasting Menu promotion.

Each participating restaurant is offering a three-course menu with pricing starting at only $32. It’s a great way to try out the many dining options of the resort without dropping triple digits per person on the check.
