Mirage is one of those hotels that believes in the concept of under-promise, over-deliver. Visitors come to Las Vegas knowing about the Mirage, but they never have any idea of how good it is inside. The buffet is as underrated. It’s a gorgeous, ultra-modern space with familiar, but top-notch fare. Delivered by eleven live action stations, it includes prime rib that’s juicy and sliced to order, sushi as good as you’d get in your favorite Japanese restaurant, and Sunday brunch with such hangover-friendly items as pho, and, classic but pretty, eggs Benedict (plus more champagne). Like its sister buffet at Bellagio, Cravings offers a nightly Chef's Table experience that brings the buffet to you, complete with meats carved tableside Rodizio-style and a huge family-style dessert spectacle at the end. Beverages are self-service from one of those new-fangled soda machines, so there’s something like 150 different flavors of Coca-Cola to choose from. Unlimited beer and wine for those 21-and-over is a nice touch.
