As we gear up for the Premium Cigar Association Trade Show in Las Vegas, I am keeping an eye on all things Vegas (who am I kidding, I do that anyway). Well there was some big news out of Sin City this week, particularly if you are a fan of buffets. Wynn is going to reopen The Buffet at Wynn on July 1st.
The reopening will come just in time for the Fourth of July weekend, the latest in a string of holidays that have been driving the recovery of tourism in Las Vegas.
Eight royal palm trees imported from South Florida and placed at the entrance will be part of a new look, and executive chef Jason Duarte, who spent more than a decade at M Resort, has designed a new menu. The buffet will have 16 food stations, including one dedicated to eggs Benedict and offering such variations on the classic as lobster, smoked salmon, and corncake and spinach. There also will be a pancake station with such choices as red velvet chocolate chip, and buttermilk and vanilla bean.
Depending on the time of day, the cost of the Buffet at Wynn will run anywhere from $39 to $65. There has been speculation that many Vegas casinos will not bring back their buffets, as they often lose money. But this decision by Wynn may influence other Vegas casinos to follow its lead.
That would be great news for Vegas buffet lovers.
