Joining a collection of ongoing improvements at the resort, The Buffet at T.I. has temporarily shuttered until July 28 for a major makeover.
Paperwork filed over the last two months calls for a demolition of the buffet interior, followed by a remodel with an estimated construction budget of $3,636,601.
Previously known as Dishes, the buffet debuted with the Treasure Island resort in 1993, promoted as hosting Chinese, American. and Italian food stations and an initial dinner price tag of $6.99 plus tax. Prior to closing, recent weekday dinner seatings were priced at $30.95 per person.
The buffet featured large windows allowing guests on the casino floor to view the preparation of desserts, cakes, and pastries inside, plus a popular $27.95 “Champagne Brunch” held on weekends.
T.I. is also advising diners the posted July 28 unveiling date is “subject to change.”
Elsewhere, work continues on overhauling the tram link connected to the Mirage resort next door and now aiming for an Oct. 8 return, the remodel of two existing retail spaces, and the installation of a new bar inside the showroom.
