Grand Casino is planning a $45 million dollar renovation that will include a name-change and a new restaurant. In May 2008, the Grand will become Harrah's Casino Tunica. The casino will also unveil Paula Deen's Buffet, a 560-seat restaurant.
Deen was at the casino today for a cooking event and participated in the press conference.
The hotel at the new Harrah's will be renovated floor-by-floor, and the casino's changes will include a new high-limit salon and poker room.
