Brant Coulter, the Director of Food & Beverage, joined the team about five months ago to help spearhead the transition to Phase 5. With 16 years of cheffing and directing food & beverage in casinos, he says that one of the joys of the casino world is that “you’ve got a city’s worth of restaurants under one roof.” This rings true at Gun Lake Casino, with a variety of options such as a Grab & Go, the Harvest Buffet (Chef Balal Darwich), 131 Sports Bar & Lounge (Chef Andy DeKam), CBK (Chef Nick Aslanian), and Shkodé Chophouse (Chef Christian Madsen).
