Scratch the Beach Buffet coming to the Tropicana. Now the new buffet taking over the Beach Café — Savor, the Buffet — promises to open by Nov. 22.
The revamp of the Beach Cafe converts the bright and airy 5,384-square-foot space using an estimated construction budget of $750,000. Among the changes, replacing the current serving area with a more familiar Las Vegas buffet layout and adding new pizza, pasta, dessert, and drink stations. The kitchen and lighting scheme will remain intact.
Savor promises four live action stations spanning American, Asian, Italian and Mexican cuisines. The renovation brings new menu items such as a BLT Benedict, Cajun chicken and grits, chicken scaloppini with prosciutto and white beans, and green chile enchiladas.
"More than just your typical buffet, we are taking elements from our café to offer our guests a more of a distinctive dining experience such as our made-to-order and create-your-own stations," added Rosenthal. "This new restaurant will feature the freshest ingredients and the best dishes from around the world - allowing for a crave-worthy experience."
Customer can get made-to-order pizza and pasta dishes, selecting pasta shapes and sauces. Gluten-free, spinach, sweet potato, and quinoa arrive as well.
Savor plans to be open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. with prices starting at $21.95 per person for breakfast, $26.95 per person for lunch and between $31.95 to $34.95 per person for dinner. To-go options will also be available.
Prior to the café concept, the Tropicana operated a breakfast- and lunch-only buffet in the same room, noted for its occasional themed menu specials.
