Wynn Las Vegas is spending millions this summer to make the luxury resort feel like new. SW Steakhouse will begin a three-week renovation starting today, prep work has begun on the hand over of Paul Bartolotta's namesake restaurant to Botero executive chef Mark LoRusso early next year and upgrades and new additions will be found in the retail promenades, including the arrival of Prada.
Wynn is next tackling one of their of most award-winning assets, the "15 live-action cooking stations" of The Buffet and spending an impressive sum in upgrading the structure and decor.
Just for construction, the estimated costs are declared as $3,661,300, with the remodel to include new interior partitions, doors, acoustic wall and ceiling panels, 12 interior awnings, plus improvements in the kitchen including new sinks and equipment.
Filling a total of 23,632 square feet, The Buffet will re-launch close in size to the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace and their much touted 25,000-square-foot footprint. Paperwork for the Wynn makeover was first filed at the end of May and is now on the fast track. No announcement of the changes or timetable for completion have been officially announced.
