Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace Reopening
The over-the-top Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace, launched in 2012 and reputed to have been the largest buffet in Las Vegas serving more than 500 items, has been closed since March. It is slated to reopen in late August 2020 after a multi-million-dollar renovation, but will be not be quite the same as it was before the pandemic. The company issued a statement saying: “Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace is currently undergoing a multi-million renovation, anticipated to be complete in late August. When complete—besides a spectacular, new modern design by Aoyagi Tetsuo of Muku Design, Tokyo—the buffet will offer more miniature composed dishes than ever before and all-new-table-side delivery of popular and innovative items like lobster bisque, Cajun seafood boil, foie gras PB&J and cheeseburger bao buns, to name a few." Bacchanal Buffet, Caesars Palace, 3570 Las Vegas Blvd. S., Las Vegas, NV 89109, 702-731-7928.

The Buffet at Wynn The Vegas Buffet Lives On
With all the new restrictions brought on by COVID-19, it appeared the renowned Vegas buffets would go by the wayside. However, two buffets have reopened—The Buffet at Wynn and The Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan—both with self-service options eliminated, a two-hour time limit and seating limited to state-mandated 50% capacity. The Buffet at Wynn features a menu of 90 items, which are brought to diners’ tables by servers, with the option to reorder as many times as desired within a two-hour period. Items include double-cut lamb chops with truffle spinach, steak and lobster topped with a bearnaise sauce, Old Bay-braised shrimp and scallops with a spicy tomato compote, crème brulee and 13 flavors of ice creams and sorbets. The Wicked Spoon offers food stations for diners to visit, where guests are served individually plated items while diners are required to stand six feet apart while waiting to be served. Stations include Latin with ceviche, tacos and South American favorites; breakfast and brunch featuring scrambles, quiche, French toast and pancakes; Asian with duck wings, charred Korean short ribs and spiced Korean rice cakes; the grill with crab legs and a variety of meats; and dessert with a sizeable gelato selection.
