Boasting what is believed to be the largest spread of any Vegas buffet, this Caesars Palace feast was recommended by seven survey respondents -- including Modern Luxury editor Emmy Kasten, Golden Tiki creator Brandon Powers and Chef Carla Pellegrino.
The name, Bacchanal, harkens back to a Caesars Palace restaurant that attempted to re-create the gourmet offerings and other indulgences of Imperial Rome. This may not quite live up to the decadence of the former eatery (where you could receive a neck massage while you ate), it does deliver hundreds of dishes from a variety of world cuisines (including Laotian, Filipino, Indonesian, Thai and Vietnamese) served from nine open kitchens.
Beyond expected buffet favorites, you’ll find plenty of unexpected indulgences such as dim sum carts roaming the dining room, tableside lobster bisque, foie gras PB&J, cheeseburger bao, duck carnitas, house-smoked meats from a wood-burning smoker, street tacos and a mezze bar with Mediterranean dips. There’s also a nice selection of vegan items, like quinoa-stuffed baby sweet potatoes. And the seemingly endless dessert options include cinnamon bread pudding, tiramisu and about 20 flavors of hand-scooped gelato.
