Do you know which North American eatery is the continent’s cash cow?
(I figured we’d use today for sort of a brunch-y, light post that may be fun trivia some people.)
Perhaps not surprisingly, this restaurant is located in Las Vegas.
Maybe you figured something like Joël Robuchon at the MGM Grand. Or something at Wynn or Bellagio.
Nope. Way off.
Way, way off.
It’s a buffet! (I just heard gasps of horror from some readers. 🙂 )
The Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace, to be exact.
If you’re not yet hungry, you will be in a minute. Some of the featured dishes include:
Fresh-sliced wagyu beef and applewood smoked bacon. Cinnamon churros and chocolate champurrado. Truffled egg cocotte and bananas foster donuts. Watermelon juice and yogurt parfaits. Tempura shrimp udon and tonkotsu ramen. Maple-glazed sweet potato tots and egg sardou with lobster bearnaise. Smoked salmon, mussels, creole shrimp ’n’ grits, tuna poke and, of course, crab legs galore.

Caesars Entertainment proudly states that Bacchanal “completely reinvented the traditional buffet” when it opened in 2012 — with a budget of $100 million.
Will Buffets Come Back?
The rumored deaths of buffets might be greatly exaggerated. Though not all buffets may return to their pre-COVID-19 states.
Indeed, Caesars is putting more money in its prized pig-out. The restaurant is currently undergoing a $2.4 million renovation. Eater.com’s Bradley Martin says, “Specific plans on how the buffet intends to follow social distancing or protect food from contamination have not been revealed, but many dishes at the nine serving stations are already individually prepared, shared, or plated in real-time by staff from behind the counters.”
I haven’t spent much time at Caesars Palace. My work and leisure trips usually have me at M Life properties. (Though my new Caesars Diamond status may affect some of that 🙂 ). But I’m definitely interested in visiting the Bacchanal Buffet.
