The Buffet of Buffets: The Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

Sleek, hot, sexy, contemporary, dark, fashionable, and delicious.  These are all characteristics of one of the newest, trendiest, and best buffets on the Las Vegas Strip, the Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan.

This ultra modern buffet emerge guests into a whole new buffet experience; one that strays from the typical buffet organization and set up, by serving food in individual sized portions that is jam packed with personality. You’ll find fried chicken in mini fryer baskets, macaroni and cheese in small serving pots, string beans in Chinese takeout boxes, and Asian chicken in mini woks. And this is only the tip of the iceberg.

The black and dark woods with dark yellow and amber lit glass accents throughout the serving areas, complimented with a fanciful and artful sitting area provides guests with a dining experience that is elegant, yet causal and relaxing. 

There are also multiple tasting stations that allows guest to try some of the unique cuisines with international influences. Stations include: a large dessert area with gelato, cookies, pastries, and chocolate covered strawberries; Asian station with tender Korean story short rib, freshly rolled sushi, and typical Chinese and Asian fare; a fresh fruit, cheeses, salads, and bread station; a live action station that serves custom order mac and cheese for dinner and omelets for brunch; a seafood and fish station; a Latin cuisine influenced section; and  an Italian pizza and pasta station that features delicious gnocchi, smoked ham infused macaroni and cheese, and butternut squash ravioli to die for. There are honestly so many choices that it’s impossible to try them all in one sitting.

From the very kind and attentive service to the delectable and unique fare, this buffet provides guest with a fantastic dining experience that all foodies and buffet enthusiast like me should try.

This is my favorite buffet in all of Las Vegas and I had a wonderful time testing out all the new cuisines that this one of a kind buffet has to offer.

Such a cool way to serve fried chicken!
Nothing significant...I just liked the picture of the desserts

  1. I only tried The Wynn buffet because we usually avoid buffets in Vegas. We might try this one in Feb. Have you tried any other buffets in Vegas?

    1. I have also tried the Wynn Buffet, the Aria Buffet, and Cravings at the Mirage. So far, my favorite, in terms of overall choices and quality is the Wicked Spoon. But for breakfast, I really enjoyed the Wynn Buffet because there were so many unique items, even for breakfast. Unfortunately, I wasn't too fond of Cravings, possibly because I have became a little too "spoiled to the foods available at high end buffets.
