We enjoyed another sunny, beautiful day today. We walked to and had breakfast at the Bouchon Bakery in the Venetian (fantastically delicious), walked through the Palazzo, did a bit of gambling on a few nickel slots, then took the monorail down to the MGM, walked through to New York New
York, onto the Monte Carlo, then back to Vdara for the afternoon, swimming and watching the Packers (barely) beat the Vikings. And all that was great, but this post focuses on our dinner, which we just returned from. We couldn’t really decide what we all wanted exactly, so we ended up going with a buffet, and the closest buffet was Wicked Spoon in the Cosmopolitan. In short, it was incredible. It was pricey, but in the end, we all agreed it was worth it. So many choices, each so delicious, and many choices we never imagined could make it onto a buffet and still be amazing. Bone marrow! Prime rib! Pork rillettes! Beignets! Mussels! Fried chicken! Truffled scallop potatoes! Sushi! Mac and Cheese station! Gnocchi with lamb ragu! Salted Peanut Gelato! Mint Chocolate Gelato with Chocolate Pearls! Strawberry shortcake! Macaroons! And oodles and oodles and oodles more. And everything was delicious and refined in a way that it could have been served in a very high end restaurant. If you find yourself in Vegas and are looking for a buffet, make a point to visit Wicked Spoon. We’ve been to a few other buffets we thought were very good, and this blew them all out of the water.
