Owned and operated by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, this property is home to six casinos, as well as a Rees Jones-designed championship golf course, a Troon Golf Academy and a whopping 30-plus restaurants including a Red Lantern outpost (Asian), Paragon (market fresh) and David Burke Prime (steakhouse).
