The Palms is ready to debut its new buffet, replacing Bistro Buffet. The resort, already going through a $485 million renovation, welcomes A.Y.C.E. Buffet on Dec. 22.
The property, now part of Station Casinos, shuttered the buffet in July to completely overhaul the 9,685-square-foot space on the edge of the casino floor. For construction costs alone, the Palms allocated an estimated budget of $5.8 million to change the entire dining area with new furniture, walls, ceiling finishes, and electrical and lighting fixtures.
The Palms still refers to the space as an “open food hall setting” with wood-burning grills, large rotisseries, and smokers, and diners can chat with the chefs while they prepare dishes.
The new space includes The Greenery, where diners can order individual salads or pick through platters of greens. The Hearth features baked goods including casseroles and pizzas, as well as whole fish, English pasties, and more. Over at The Roastery, diners can grab oxtail poutine, chicken teriyaki, and dishes cooked on a 900-degree grill. The World Pan features all things made in a wok including paella, bao buns, cioppino, stroganoff, stir-fry, fried noodles, gumbo, and more. An area dubbed Smoke & Fire serves bourbon-glazed ham, cornmeal Johnny cakes, and Benedicts with smoked brisket. Revival focuses on healthy foods including bacon made with eggplant, pressed juices, bolognese with mushrooms, a rainbow chard hash, and more.
The buffet plans to be open for breakfast through dinner seven days a week.
