MGM Grand Detroit today announced it will debut a new original steakhouse and lounge called D.PRIME, which will replace Wolfgang Puck Steak.

The new steakhouse, set to open on Oct. 30, will be led by Executive Chef Derek Mattison. The menu will feature modern twists on flame-grilled steaks and seafood and contemporary signature cocktails.

“D.PRIME was created to reflect the evolution of the downtown Detroit food scene,” says David Tsai, president of the Midwest Group for MGM Resorts International. “Our guests will enjoy a unique, upscale dining experience that combines a creative menu, great drinks, and memorable service in a chic, modern setting.”

The seasonal menu, influenced by local purveyors, will feature a shellfish tower, a 34 oz. tomahawk prime ribeye, an American wagyu filet mignon, a pan-roasted whole Maine lobster, and truffle mac and cheese.

D.PRIME also will introduce several new dishes such as wild-caught Nigerian tiger prawns, a hoisin glazed prime strip, lobster tots, and a D.PRIME signature burger. The beverage menu will consist of signature cocktails with contemporary flair like an Old Smokey with smoked rosemary or a Hibiscus Martini. A full selection of premium wines by the glass or bottle also will be available.

“We’re thrilled to develop a new approach to the modern steakhouse that offers an exciting menu with some familiarity but also with a fresh spin that is uniquely Detroit,” says Mattison. “We’ve spent months creating delicious dishes you can’t find anywhere else in the city, and can’t wait for our guests to experience them.”

Hours of operation for D.PRIME are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 5-11 p.m. and closed Monday through Thursday, with additional days of operation planned for the near future.

Advanced reservations are required as seating and capacity is limited. To make a reservation, call 313- 465-1645 or visit for the latest hours and information.

D.PRIME will accommodate both private and socially distant options.
