Food & Beverage
James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Mina and San Francisco’s Chef of the Year Adam Sobel will introduce Cal Mare, an Italian concept evoking the vibrant seaside elegance of Italy’s Amalfi Coast. Cal Mare will welcome guests with an approachable and convivial ambiance, pairing bountiful East Coast ingredients with flavors of southern Italy. Fresh seafood and charcoal-grilled fish, crudos and lighter Italian fare, will be essential menu offerings, in addition to rustic handmade pastas and brick-oven pizzas. The beverage program will spotlight coastal Italian wines and an extensive list of Amari including house-made limoncellos and craft cocktails. Cal Mare is largely influenced by Chef Sobel’s journey throughout Italy, visiting the regions of Lazio, Campania, Sicilia and Puglia, as well as the hillsides just outside of Rome.

The Chandler Steakhouse
The name and setting of The Chandler Steakhouse hold a special place in Springfield history. The restaurant is located in the former Union House Hotel, later renamed The Chandler Hotel – which was preserved as part of the development of MGM Springfield and incorporated into the new resort. Now, guests will savor the finest seafood and steaks at The Chandler Steakhouse, a sophisticated-yet-modern American steakhouse concept situated in the landmark location. Helmed by Hell’s Kitchen season 14 winner Meghan Gill, The Chandler Steakhouse will offer cuts of meat made with 100 percent Midwest Angus beef, dry aged in-house for 21 days. An open mesquite charcoal broiler and glass-walled kitchen will create an engaging dining experience that allows guests to see their meals prepared before their eyes. Signature dishes such as northwest salmon, whole steamed lobster and tomahawk ribeye will complete the menu alongside creative takes on steakhouse classics. The Chandler Steakhouse’s chic bar and lounge area will serve up a curated mixology program highlighted by local ingredients, plentiful martinis and an extensive wine list.
