Foxwoods Resort Casino might be regarded as one of the finest gambling destinations in the USA but it is the opening of an indulgent dessert haven, Sugar Factory, that has got people really talking about the venue more than ever before.
Sugar Factory officially opened at the land-based casino, located in Mashantucket, Connecticut, earlier this year. Recent press coverage of the extravagant menu has caught the imagination of gamblers and non-gamblers alike.
Promoted as an American Brasserie within the Fox Theater District, this mesmerizing joint takes everything to the next level. It serves a wide range of dining delights from brunch to late-night meals.
Sugary treats, milkshakes, gourmet burgers, and a huge selection of other drinks and beverages have helped to make this one of the most sought-after eateries in the entire US.
Epic on A Whole New Scale
The dining area spans across 250 seats. The bar offers some mouth-watering cocktails that will leave you breathless. The candy store offers a mind-blowing choice of sweets and chocolates. Then there is the cafe that serves pastries and gelato.
Christina Clifton, Foxwoods VP of Food and Beverage, said, “This place is high energy, always over the top! We do celebrations better than anybody. We have great food, and extremely great drinks.”
In order to truly appreciate the scale of the 42-page double-sided menu, you have to sample what is available to eat and drink.
The milkshakes are beyond the stuff of dreams. The Caramel Sugar Daddy Cheesecake Shake is type 2 diabetes in a glass. It combines vanilla ice cream mixed in with cheesecake and caramel. That medley is then topped with an entire slice of cheesecake and whipped cream.
Speaking of the famous milkshakes, Clifton stated, “You get good stuff on the outside of the glass and also on the inside, plus on top. You can eat the chocolate on the outside by just taking a spoon and scraping it up the side.”
Burger in A Glass? Why Not!
One of the more innovative milkshakes on offer is the Bacon Cheeseburger Milkshake. It’s exactly what you think it is. The milkshake is topped with a strip of bacon and a mini cheeseburger. Pretzels and M and Ms then litter the outside of the glass. It’s simply incredible.
Clifton confirmed, “They usually take the burger off and save it for later. Usually people start eating from the outside first, and then sipping on the milkshake, and then they take a bite of the burger.”
Other glorious items on the Sugar Factory menu include the Rainbow Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwich, The World Famous Sugar Factory King Kong Sundae, and the Big Cheesy Burger.
Goblets of cocktails are also earning a fantastic reputation as stand-out drinks. Favorites include Lollipop Passion, The Drake, Night Owl, Coconuts Gone Bananas, White Gummi, and Raspberry Watermelon Mojito.
Non-alcoholic options are also served for those that are either not old enough to drink or choose not to.
One anonymous reviewer at the OpenTable.co.uk website says, “Great place to celebrate a birthday. While we were there for our lunch (maybe 2.5 hours) we heard at least 7 birthday celebrations. So I think you get the idea. Our server (Melissa) was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed and then some. She made the experience easy for us. Food was good, went with the popular classics such as appetizers. Mini rainbow sliders were to die for! Thanks for a great celebration!”
CPTJ from Connecticut wrote on TripAdvisor.com, “The Sugar Factory at Foxwoods is such a fun and unique restaurant. The drink prices are a little expensive, but well worth it. The menu is HUGE! The food was very good. The service was great. I had such a fun time here.”
Changing the Game
The Sugar Factory offers more than just the sweet delights on the menu. Corporate events, parties, and even weddings can be hosted by the venue. It’s proof that venues like this can be anything they want to be, provided they can offer the service that customers demand.
It is also a popular venue for celebrities. A-list stars such as Mariah Carey, Lil Wayne, Britney Spears, Drake, and Nicole Scherzinger have been photographed enjoying the delicious treats available to taste.
It is certain that the venue’s arrival at Foxwoods Resort Casino will only make it even more popular with both the celebrity names and us common folk.
