When it opened in 2010, The Cosmopolitan and its new buffet concept—dozens of individual and made-to-order dishes in adorable ramekins—launched the most recent era of buffet one-upmanship, sending casinos scrambling to reinvent their food halls (the culmination, so far, is the almost-too-massive Bacchanal). With its warm-wood environs and progressive take on buffet dining (bone marrow, fried chicken in individual fryer baskets, a custom mac-and-cheese bar, all in manageable portions), Wicked Spoon still draws a crowd—but since it’s no longer the new kid in town, is a bit less zoo-like than the newest buffets.
