“Wolfgang Puck Steak is our new concept that we created specifically for Detroit and MGM Grand Detroit,” said Wolfgang Puck. “We have a broad menu of the finest steaks with delicious sides and sauces at a price point for all diners. This is a break from the traditional high-end steakhouse.”
“Detroit is the classic example of a city that loves great steak and great value,” said Steve Zanella, general manager of MGM Grand Detroit. “In developing Wolfgang Puck Steak, we worked with Wolfgang and his team to craft a concept which speaks to both of those ideals. Wolfgang did a superb job of creating a menu that beautifully marries the two.”

At the helm in the Puck Steak kitchen is Executive Chef Marc Djozlija, former chef of Wolfgang Puck Grille and more than 16-year veteran of the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group. Djozlija also is the executive chef at Puck’s second MGM Grand Detroit restaurant, Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina, which opened in early November.
Puck’s daily menu includes an assortment of grilled steaks and meats, like the Kansas City Strip Steak, Filet Mignon, Ribeye Steak and a 34 oz. Bone In Rib Chop for Two, as well as fresh fish and seafood. Additional entrées include the Puck Burger with white cheddar and caramelized onion“jam” on a brioche bun, Colorado Lamb Chops, Rotisserie Free-Range Chicken, and Pan Roasted Two-Pound Maine Lobster.
A sweet ending includes Apple Cobbler with almond streusel and 50 vanilla bean ice cream; Warm Chocolate Soufflé with whipped cream and chocolate sauce; and Coffee and Pecan Ice Cream Pie with graham cracker crust.
Wolfgang Puck Steak exudes rustic style and casual warmth through earthy, red, scarlet and brown contemporary décor. The restaurant provides flexibility for many sizes groups in the main dining room, large private dining room, wine cellar table or Chef’s Table. Sepia-toned architectural photographs of Detroit’s skylines are screened onto glass divider panels in the lounge and Chef’s Table. As a nod to the industrious heritage of the Great Lakes area, panels of urban scenes and sculptures complement each other throughout the restaurant. The natural beauty of the region is brought in to the dining areas through images of grasses blowing in the wind at the water’s edge and quiet waters at twilight.
Wolfgang Puck Steak is open for dinner Sunday through Thursday from 5 – 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 – 11 p.m. For reservations, call 877-888-2121.
