The Buffet at Wynn with its 16 all-you-can-eat food stations returns to the Las Vegas dining scene on Thursday, July 1, with a new eggs Benedict station, refreshed entrance, and stations serving individually plated dishes.
The buffet was the first to reopen last June after the state ordered nonessential businesses to close last year in March to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Casinos reopened on June 4, 2020, after 78 days of mandatory closures, and the buffet reopened last year on June 18 with almost 90 all-you-can-eat dishes served at the table instead of the buffet line. It closed in September.
New to the Buffet at Wynn, a revamped entrance with eight live royal palms imported from south Florida. Also new, executive chef Jason Duarte, who updated the menu that still features many fan favorites along with new recipes for brunch.
For example, the new eggs Benedict station features a lobster Benedict, smoked salmon lox Benedict, and corncake and spinach Benedict, to name a few. The pancake station features flavors such as red velvet chocolate chip and buttermilk and vanilla bean.
The Mexican station offers carne asada, chicken mole, Mexican street corn, green chili and cheese tamales, and chorizo and eggs. The Southern Italian station features lasagna alla Bolognese, grandma’s baked meatballs, potato gnocchi with littleneck clams, and chicken Parmesan.
Over at the barbecue station, diners can pick up barbecue pork or beef ribs, dry-rubbed rotisserie chicken, honey-glazed cornbread, baby corn skillet, and smoky mac and cheese.
Customers can order crepes made-to-order with compotes in peach, strawberry, and mixed berry, or banana and Nutella at the dessert station, while the self-serve ice cream station doles out dishes.
The buffet now features optional reservations, and the ability to pay directly at the table.
The Buffet at Wynn will be open Thursday through Monday from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. for breakfast for $38.99 per person, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for brunch for $45.99 per person, and 3 to 9 p.m. for dinner for $64.99 per person. Weekend brunch is available Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for $48.99 per person. Endless pours are also available for an additional $24.99 per person for diners age 21 and up. Children age two and under dine for free, with children age three to nine dining for half price.
The reopening on July 1 brings back six buffets inside casinos. The Buffet at Wynn joins Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace, Garden Buffet at South Point, Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Circus Buffet at Circus Circus, and the MGM Grand Buffet.
