The beautiful Bacchanal Buffet is the crown jewel of the Caesars Entertainment empire. It isn’t so much an all-you-can-eat buffet as it is nine different restaurants in one massive area. The space is divided into different, and different-looking, sections (one is glass enclosed, the back dining room is based around reclaimed wood, and a gleaming all-metal space finishes the trio.) More than 500 items are offered on any given day between the cold and raw bar, carving, Mexican, Asian, charcuterie, salad, and pizza stations. In addition are off-menu specials based on the chef’s whimsy. Each item we’ve eaten here, whether it was the little basket of fried chicken and waffles, delicate dim sum, red velvet pancakes, or the big hunks of Polish sausage cut just for us, has been prepared extremely well, like it was made just for us. The desserts are some of our favorites in town, including Japanese mochi, macarons, and unusual gelatos (like brown butter gelato).
