New Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace

These mouthwatering red velvet Pancakes are just one of over 500 items to be featured at the new Caesars Palace Bacchanal Buffet.

The Las Vegas world has been abuzz with whisperings of the new buffet opening at Caesars Palace. After closing for the remodel in January, the buffet will reopen to great fanfare next month. The September 2012 debut will feature an all-new buffet called the Bacchanal Buffet. The name might be familiar to the (relatively) old-school Las Vegas types, who remember the gourmet Caesars Palace fine dining restaurant that closed in 2000.

In a city that is saturated with buffets, it’s hard to make yours stand out, even if it is the newest one on The Strip. Contemporary decor, carving stations, crab legs galore, gourmet dessert tables – it’s all been done. Bacchanal, however, is one-upping everyone else, and promises a culinary collection that can’t be missed. From the buffet’s website,

Bacchanal Buffet will feature more than 500 items from classic favorites such as made-to-order omelets, the freshest seafood and roasted meats like prime rib to cutting edge, regional comfort food like breakfast pizzas, red velvet pancakes, wood fired Neapolitan pizzas and Chinese dim sum, even roasted South Carolina shrimp and grits.

Yes, this appears to be chicken and waffles complete with maple syrup, served out of a pipette.

500 items really is an impressive collection, even for a buffet, and will surely put some pressure on some of the existing buffets to dial things up a notch or two. If you aren’t already drooling with anticipation, tickle your tastebuds with this overview of the buffet’s worldly cuisine selections:

  • Mexican – featuring freshly made enchiladas, tortillas and sopapillas
  • Italian – Pastas, baked lasagna, antipasto display
  • Chinese – Made-to-order assorted soups, wok-fried dishes and dim sum
  • Japanese – Fresh sushi, sashimi, cooked fish
  • American – BBQ house-smoked meats from a wood-burning smoker and wood-burning grill; numerous carving stations including prime rib, brisket, rotisserie chicken and more
  • Seafood – Fresh East and West Coast oysters, king crab, snow crab, stone crab, mussels and prawns
  • Pizza – Varieties of pizzas served fresh from a wood-burning oven
  • Deli – Soups, cheeses, 7 charcuterie selections including house specialties and individual, prepared and make-your-own salads
  • Dessert – Chocolate, vanilla and pistachio soufflés baked to order, selection of gelato, sorbets and crème brûlée

The new buffet for Caesars Palace will be open 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. every day. Breakfast runs $19.99, lunch is $24.99 and you’ll have to shell out $39.99 for the seafood dinner. Our recommendation is to buy a Buffet of Buffets Pass that grants you access to the Caesars Entertainment buffet collection for a full 24 hours. To enjoy the Bacchanal Buffet, though, even with the pass you’ll have to pay an extra $10 charge.

Buffet Tip: The Caesars Entertainment hotels often offer room deals that include two free Buffet of Buffets passes. With that, you’ll be able to indulge at Bacchanal for just the $10 upcharge! Check out our hotel deals page and select the buffet option on the perks filter to see which hotels are currently offering Buffet of Buffets passes.
