Revealed last month to be taking over the Beach Café at the Tropicana Las Vegas, new plywood signage confirms the Beach Buffet will be up and running by the end of the year.
Promising a winter arrival, the switcheroo will transform the bright and airy 5,384-square-foot space with 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.
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.
Yet to be formerly announced, but referenced by COO Jay Snowden of resort owner Penn National Gaming during an earnings report, an unmanned “Asian restaurant” is also hoped to debut by December. Other additions will need to wait until 2018, after gauging customer response to the changes and the success of newcomer Robert Irvine’s Public House.
