The changes keep coming fast and furious at the Monte Carlo as it goes through its $450 million renovation to turn into the Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas. Now the Buffet at Monte Carlo turns out the lights, according to the resort’s website.
Back in 2012, the buffet went through a renovation, followed by a name change from Big Belly Buffet to simply The Buffet the following year. One of the smaller buffets on the Strip featured a salad bar, a pasta bar, grill stations, carving stations serving prime rib, and a station for desserts. Key features included an all-day brunch and dining pass for unlimited visits all day.
Already Yusho, Andre’s, Hit Lounge, BLVD Creamery, D.vino, Dragon Noodle Co., Brand Steakhouse, and The Pub at Monte Carlo closed to make way for the changes, which include a 40,000-square-foot Eataly, a NoMad Hotel with the three-meal Primrose anchoring the bottom, Bavette’s Steakhouse, and a NoMad restaurant. Primrose should open by the end of the month, while Bavette’s follows. Eataly and NoMad arrive in 2018.
