So Many Vegas Buffets
I’ve always loved buffets in Las Vegas, and I’ve been to most of the major ones over the past 7 years (many of them multiple times).
I remember loving the crab legs initially, and I would scout out the seafood buffets (like the Rio buffet back in the days when it was famous for its seafood).
Then, when the Wynn’s high-end buffet opened, it was like getting a super-charge of relatively high-class food all in one sitting. And for about a year, I would make a trip to the Wynn buffet every trip!
However, for the past few years, my taste for buffets has died down a bit (I tried the Bacchanal buffet at Caesar’s palace last September, and it was good but not amazing). That is, until I tried Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan Hotel this past trip.
I loved it so much we went twice on consecutive nights! There was just a great selection of Paleo options – from bone marrow to prime rib to house-cured bacon to freshly grilled salmon to kale salads and sauteed Brussels sprouts. And most importantly, everything was amazingly delicious.
NOTE: this post has been updated with photos from a more recent 2015 visit (skip down to the bottom of the post for the new section).
What Wicked Spoon Looks Like
This is what Wicked Spoon buffet looks like walking in.
Wicked Spoon buffet is upstairs from the main Cosmopolitan casino floor, and you get to go up this beautiful escalator before turning right and going down the corridor to find Wicked Spoon.
The Amazing Food at Wicked Spoon
Carving Station with Bone Marrow (they also had prime rib, and lamb leg)
House-cured bacon, tandoori chicken, and sausage
Prawns and Mussels
Perfectly Grilled Salmon
Pork Belly and Korean Galbi Beef Ribs
Gourmet Small Dishes
Octopus Slices with Pineapple and Sesame Oil
Really Cool Salads like Heirloom Tomato Salads, Caprese Salads, Kale Salads
Charcuterie like Serrano Ham and Salami
It was $41 for dinner on both Friday and Saturday (I believe it’s $34 for a weekend brunch). They also mentioned a $18 take-out option, but I didn’t look into it. Their hours are listed here. This is definitely similar to most other large buffets in Las Vegas, and in my opinion, well worth the price!
Photos From New Visit (2015) To Wicked Spoon Buffet
I was just in Vegas, and I couldn’t help but go to Wicked Spoon twice during my visit!
Here are some of the photos:
There’s a new seafood bar where they make your dish on demand (I got scallops, salmon, and black cod sautéed in butter with garlic):
