Look out, Wicked Spoon. A new buffet is about to hit the block. Caesars Palace today announced its $17 million Bacchanal Buffet will debut tentatively Sept. 10.
Bacchanal takes over the former Lago Buffet space that shuttered in January and represents the former restaurant of the same name that closed in 2000. The new 25,000-square-foot Roman feast of a buffet plans to feature more than 500 items from nine open kitchens.
This place can pack in 600 guests. Executive chef Scott Green plans to serve up Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, American, seafood, pizza, a deli and dessert. Look for 115 items for dessert, 20 types of bread, 10 daily soups and seven cheeses with 300 dishes available for dinner and 95 at breakfast.
The crazy big buffet will feature a decor combining glass, wood and steel created by Super Potato with a guilty view of the svelte bodies at the Garden of the Gods pools. Seven different table designs get surrounded by 10 types of chairs in 17 fabrics. The walls will be lined with 3,607 glass jars filled with spices and foods while 16,027 bowls, plates, glasses, jars and kitchen small wares make up another design element.
The announcement comes on the heels of the closure of Bradley Ogden this weekend with Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill taking its place perhaps as soon as December. Nobu Matsuhisa’s Nobu Restaurant also opens in October in the new Nobu Tower.
Bacchanal Buffet plans to be open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Yes, it can be part of the Buffet of Buffets pass where diners can eat their way through the Caesars Entertainment buffets for an additional $10 charge. Expect breakfast to go for $19.99, lunch $24.99 and the seafood dinner for $39.99.
