A.Y.C.E. Buffet

Address: Palms, 4321 W. Flamingo Road

Phone: 702-942-7777

Status: Open daily from 8 to 11 a.m. for breakfast, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for lunch and 4 to 9 p.m. for dinner, closing at 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Sunday brunch is served from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

When the former Bistro Buffet shuttered over the summer, the Palms resort promised a food hall-styles setting for the next incarnation of an all-you-can-eat experience. Built with an original, estimated construction budget of $6 million, the A.Y.C.E. Buffet debuts today, with an open-plan footprint right on the edge of the casino floor and seven food “stations” for diners to browse.

Informally known as the “Ace” buffet, the 9,685-square-foot, brightly lit space features hedge row-style low walls, plenty of plaid design motifs and the Roastery, Greenery, Hearth, World Pan, Smoke & Fire, Sweet & Light, and Revival themed food sections.

For patrons not prone to indulgence, the Revival station is devoted to “wellness, power-boosting super foods and specialty vegan, vegetarian and anti-inflammatory cuisine,” including "rainbow chard hash and cauliflower and quinoa grits," while the Greenery offers salads, fruits and greens.

For a more traditional buffet feast, international flavors at the World Pan include Moroccan lamb, congee, bao buns, and strogonoff, while the Roastery has installed a white oak and mesquite chip burning grill for its 900-degree heat. Upgraded spins on familiar buffet fare includes smoked brisket Benedicts, cornmeal Johnny cakes and a mini-duck cassoulet with white beans.

Priced between $12.99 for breakfast and $21.99 for dinner, with discounts for Boarding Pass players club members, a Sunday brunch has also been added, dedicated to serving bottomless mimosas.
