It seems even hotter on The Strip this time (probably due to traffic and pollution) as compared to the Red Rock Resort. Here, I am wearing a breezy outfit with a hat to protect me from over exposure from the sun (a much-needed accessory when visiting Vegas in the Summer).
Of course, if you have never been to Vegas before, staying at The Strip would be more convenient for you. When you stay on the strip, you are in the middle of it all. You can walk from your casino to a live show at another hotel, followed by a world class restaurant, then finally to a hot nightclub. It is all right there for you to enjoy with very little effort.
One thing that is surely within your reach are the top-rated buffets on The Strip. On this weekend getaway, I decided to feast at the newest buffet in town: The Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan Hotel. I was intrigued by this buffet from all the reviews and features I had read. It seemed funky and fresh while delivering a new approach on the traditional Las Vegas buffet. I find Wicked Spoon to be a very stylish buffet at a very chic casino.
Here is a photo showing some very nice interior decors and embellishments providing an elegant appearance and relaxing ambiance.
The food itself is pretty good. As someone who leans towards eating more vegetables and grains, I think there is a larger selection of healthy fares here than other buffets. I love the portions and presentation of each item. They are prepared and displayed gourmet style.
Things that stood out: the food displays are very appetizing and creative. I like the little take-out boxes used for Asian udon noodles and edamame (which were really tasty), little sliver sauce pans used to hold gnocchi, yummy mac & cheese, country fried chicken, bowls of clams in white wine & garlic broth, korean bbq ribs… there are so many choices!
My absolute favorite part is dessert. There were chocolate-dipped strawberries, Molten Chocolate & Salted Caramel Lava Cake, Godiva cake lollipops which are super pretty and really chocolatey, a variety of cakes and pastries, etc. I feel the dessert was more focused on chocolate.. nothing wrong with that!
All in all, the Wicked Spoon Buffet is more upscale and gourmet-style than any of the other buffets. Though I was not disappointed, I still think the Wynn Buffet (their sea bass alone is worth the price) is the best buffet in town.
