As a sign that Las Vegas tourism numbers are getting better and better, Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is planning to reopen on Thursday, March 25th.
The buffet, one of the few to reopen on the Las Vegas Strip in June, closed on January 10 after a seven-month run at the resort.
Originally, Wicked Spoon was closed in March 2020 when the state ordered non-essential businesses to temporarily close to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In June, after the casinos reopened, Wicked Spoon returned later in the month with mandatory reservations, reduced seating and meals served by staff. With the state urging restaurants to cut capacity to 25 percent in November, operators up and down the Strip found it difficult to maintain staff numbers and stay open, let alone make money. On March 15, the state eases COVID-19 restrictions on restaurants and allows them to offer 50 percent capacity.
The Cosmopolitan’s buffet includes less common menu items such as bone marrow, squid noodles and elote, plus an incredible selection of ice cream for dessert.
After reopening, the buffet will continue to have limited capacity with reservations recommended and fewer than 10 people per table with tables two meters apart. The employees serve the guests at each dining station. The buffet is still limited to two hours.
The buffet is open from Thursday to Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Breakfast from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. is $ 38 per person. Lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. is $ 45 per person. Unlimited drinks are $ 21 per person.
Currently, the Garden Buffet in South Point is the only buffet open in a Las Vegas casino.
