The first buffet on the Strip gets ready to reopen with almost 90 all-you-can-eat dishes served at the table instead of the buffet line. The Buffet at Wynn Las Vegas will reopen Thursday, June 18, with unlimited servings, bringing the buffet to the table.
Diners can order from a menu, with servers bringing dishes to the table with the option to reorder as many times as desired within a two-hour period.
New items on the menu include double-cut lamb chops with truffle spinach and crispy onions; steak and lobster topped with a Bearnaise sauce; lobster ravioli featuring roasted red peppers and fennel and finished with saffron sauce; as well as Old Bay-braised shrimp and scallops served with a spicy tomato compote.
New desserts on the menu include chocolate-dipped Rice Krispies, crème brulee, and 13 flavors of ice creams and sorbets.
The buffet will feature tables spread apart for social distancing, touchless technologies, and both disposable single-use and QR code downloadable menus. Reservations are required and customers will pay at the end of their meal in an effort to expedite entry.
Diners can make reservations or be added to the waitlist with a QR code that will be displayed at the entrance of the buffet. Reservations can also be made online. Reservations are not required.
The buffet will be open Sunday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Weekday brunch is priced at $36.99 and dinner is priced at $59.99. Weekend brunch is priced at $48.99 and weekend dinner is priced at $65.99.
The buffet also has two limitless pour packages available for $24.99 and $29.99 and include a selection of beer, wine, sparkling wine, rose, signature cocktails, and more.
Wynn was one of the first resorts on the Strip to close its buffet to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Before the coronavirus pandemic, the Buffet at Wynn featured 15 live-action cooking stations with rotisserie grilled steakhouse cuts, coast-to-coast seafood, and more than 120 artfully presented dishes.
Gov. Steve Sisolak closed casinos on March 17 to curb the spread of COVID-19. The Nevada Gaming Control Board issued guidelines to resorts to reopen that include maintaining 50 percent capacity, masks on staff, cleaning protocols, and social distancing throughout the casino. Casinos were permitted to reopen across the state on June 4.
