Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas reopens Wicked Spoon buffet with brunch only

Wicked Spoon, the high-end buffet at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, reopened on Friday with mandatory reservations, reduced seating, and dishes served by staff.

The Cosmopolitan’s buffet includes less common menu items, such as bone marrow, squid ink pasta, and corn, plus an amazing selection of gelato for dessert.

The buffet, the second to reopen on the Las Vegas Strip, asks diners to stay six feet away as they wait to sit down and at the food stations. The staff at one of the six food stations delivers the dishes, while the employees continue to serve drinks. Diners have a two hour limit to eat.

The buffet reduces its hours from Thursday to Sunday from 8 am to 3 pm, and brunch only costs $ 36 for adults and $ 20 for children from 4 to 10 years old.

Diners can also order bottomless mimosas, champagne, Bloody Marys, or Bud Light keg packs for $ 17.

For reservations, go online.

The buffet at Wynn reopened on June 18 with unlimited portions, bringing the buffet to the table. There, diners can order from a menu, with servers bringing dishes to the table with the option to reorder as many times as desired within a two-hour period.

Governor Steve Sisolak closed the casinos on March 17 to curb the spread of COVID-19. The Nevada Gaming Control Board has issued guidelines to reopen complexes that include maintaining 50 percent capacity, masks on staff, cleaning protocols, and social distancing throughout the casino. Casinos were reopened across the state on June 4.
