Need another reason to travel to Vegas? How about a 500 item buffet?
Caesars Palace will open a new bacchanal buffet with over 500 items.
Bacchanal Buffet will feature more than 500 items from classic favorites such as made-to-order omelets, the freshest seafood and roasted meats like prime rib, to cutting edge, regional comfort food like breakfast pizzas, red velvet pancakes, wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas and Chinese dim sum, even roasted South Carolina shrimp and grits.
Here’s the straight facts:
Size: 25,000 square feet
Seating: 600 guests
Kitchens: 9, including Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, American, Seafood, Pizza, Deli and Dessert.
Most kitchens will feature an interactive chef, crafting a total of:
Dinner: More than 300 items
Breakfast: More than 95 items
Pastry: An additional 115 pastry items available during dinner (who knew there were 115 kinds of pastry?)
Bread: More than 20 different varieties of fresh-baked bread and rolls
Soups: More than 10 daily soups, many of which will rotate daily
Cheeses: 7 farmstead American cheeses available year round with 3 changing seasonally
If that's not enough ... there will also be crepes made-to-order, oyster shucking, house-smoked ribs and brisket, and yes, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.
The prices are fairly reasonable - $19.99 for breakfast, $24.99 for lunch, and $39.99 for a seafood dinner, or a $10 supplemental charge for the standard Caesars buffet pass.
