UNCASVILLE, CT (December 14, 2023) – Mohegan Sun, one of the world’s
leading integrated entertainment resort destinations, is pleased to
announce The Shed, a new restaurant concept by celebrated restaurateur,
John J. Tunney III. This new dining offering will be located in Casino
of the Earth, adjacent to Tunney’s other renowned dining offering
BALLO Italian Restaurant [1] and across from Frank Pepe’s Pizzeria
Napoletana. The 8,100 square-foot space is set to open in Spring 2024.

“We are very excited to welcome The Shed to our excellent lineup of
dining offerings at Mohegan Sun,” said Jeff Hamilton, president and
general manager of Mohegan Sun. “Our friends at BALLO Italian
Restaurants are known for delivering fresh, authentic, Italian cuisine,
plus amazing service and an incredible atmosphere, so we look forward to
expanding on this partnership and experiencing their delicious take on
American comfort food.”

“We are thrilled to have another one of our top brands become a part
of the extraordinary culinary offerings at Mohegan Sun,” said John J.

New York and we cannot wait to bring the experience to our friends in
Connecticut. The Shed truly has something for everyone, any time of the
day, who comes to visit the exceptional attractions at Mohegan Sun.”

The Shed offers a bright take on American comfort food (including items
that are gluten-free, vegetarian, or can be easily modified to be vegan)
and features a scratch kitchen with a robust list of specialty brunch,
lunch and dinner options—from the indulgent to the healthful. The
Shed’s enticing dining menus are only made better by the ultra-friendly
team and rustic beach-chic ambiance that incorporates warmly textured
woods, pops of color, and intriguing works of art.

Popular menu items include Skillet Mac and cheese topped with corn,
jalapeños, bacon and green onion, Glazed Salmon paired with Brussels
sprouts, sweet potatoes, & shallots, topped with a sweet mustard glaze,
and the savory Chicken and waffles with spicy habanero honey on the side.
Gluten-free options include a hearty Breakfast Bowl, complete with two
poached eggs, avocado, homefries, spinach, onions, corn, jalapeños and
a chipotle hollandaise, Arugula Roasted Tomato Benedict served with
delicious home fries, and The Shed Bowl made with roasted chicken,
arugula, radish, sweet potatoes, wild rice, sunflower seeds, mushrooms,
goat cheese and a spiced honey vinaigrette.

The Shed was established in 2017, and the Mohegan Sun location joins
sister locations in Huntington, NY, West Sayville, NY, Plainview, NY and
Westbury, NY.
