A fanciful departure from the usual Vegas buffet (generally characterized by harsh décor and overcooked, institutional food), the Buffet at Wynn, lit overhead by natural light, evokes a garden party. Towers of fruit and flowers fill the central atrium, around which are arranged multiple stations. You’ll find faultlessly fresh maki rolls, ceviche, tandoori chicken, and truffled risotto among the Mexican, seafood, Japanese, Indian, and Italian selections. An entire sweetshop-style room is devoted to pastries, baba au rhum, lemon tarts, bread pudding, and a full complement of gelato flavors. The pastry chef has even thoughtfully included sugar-free desserts so everyone can indulge.
Tip: If you’re not in a hurry, offer to wait in order to secure a table in the sunny atrium.
