Aside from the casinos and shows, some of the hottest destinations in Vegas are the buffets. Alright, this might be a bit of an exaggeration, but there is some serious buffet love in Vegas, with a favorite being the Wicked Spoon Buffet at the Cosmopolitan on the Las Vegas Strip.
The Wicked Spoon Buffet is ranked among the best buffet dining experience you can have in the city. This is saying a lot since Vegas is the hot spot paradise for buffet foodies from around the world. In a place where culinary mastery reigns supreme, the buffets have to put out something a little extra special to stand out and compete.
Something more than a little extra special is exactly what you’re going to find at the Wicked Spoon in Las Vegas. The Cosmopolitan’s spin on buffet food includes chef-crafted, original dishes that range from light and refreshing to downright decadent, with lots of worldly, regional, and seasonal cuisine that will have you eating your heart out.
The Wicked Spoon Cosmopolitan is highly recommended. Let’s dig in and find out why.
Wicked Spoon Las Vegas Buffet Menu
There’s the atmosphere and the drinks, but in the end, it’s really all about the food. The Wicked Spoon Buffet inside the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas is known for its imaginative seasonal dishes and well-crafted original selections. Typical buffet options leave you with a table full of fried chicken and mashed potatoes, but that’s not the case here.
Ok, you can still have the fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and familiar staples, but be prepared for them to be top quality and elevated several levels above what you’re used to. The Wicked Spoon has a breakfast and lunch menu. Be prepared to grow hungry as we take a look at each.
Wicked Spoon Breakfast Buffet Menu
First up is the breakfast buffet menu that isn’t your usual selection of pastries and eggs. Several food stations are set up, including a cold bar, breakfast-inspired station, brunch station, grill station, an international station, an Asian station, and desserts. Yes, desserts for breakfast. That’s about all it takes to get us on board.
The cold bar includes refreshing breakfast food options like seasonal fruit, Nutella toast, smoked salmon plates, cheese plate, oatmeal, and chia seed pudding. There are also some less traditional breakfast items like beef carpaccio and tomato basil soup. This is the spot you want to hit up if you’re looking for a light breakfast that isn’t lacking in deliciousness.
The breakfast-inspired station features classics where eggs are at center stage. Fluffy scrambled eggs, scrambled egg whites, and frittatas accompanied by applewood smoked bacon and crisp, green salad.
From here, the options only get more decadent. The brunch station offers perfect eggs benedict, lemon blueberry French toast, shrimp & grits, and Gochujjang braised egg.
The rest of what you’ll find strays far from typical breakfast food. Once you try the kale salad with ginger dressing, it will become something you always crave. There are pork Barria tacos, samosas with mango chutney, Asian dirty fried rice, bone marrow with lemon gremolata, roasted chicken with miso and ginger, and then a whole slew of treats to satisfy your early morning sweet tooth.
Wicked Spoon Lunch Buffet
The lunch buffet is exactly what you’re craving after sleeping in late and starting to show a few signs of life after a long night of everything Vegas.
There are some carry-overs from breakfast, and it’s also the perfect spot to find delicious brunch items. On the cold bar, you’ll find a few delicacies added, like tuna Crudo with a grapefruit reduction and beef tataki with citrus ginger ponzu and dehydrated duck egg.
If you’re in the mood for a more decadent meal, you can choose between the bone marrow, snow crab legs, or the slow-roasted prime rib that can be found at the carving station. It really does feel more like a massive dinner buffet than it does lunch.
There are also lots of great sides like the angry mac & cheese, poblano creamed corn, and classic salads. You’ll also want to save room for the dessert section, where you’ll find assorted pastries, gelatos, creme brulee, strawberry lychee mousse cake, bourbon white chocolate bread pudding…there’s more, but we’re gaining too much weight just writing this.
The food isn’t the only star of the show at the Wicked Spoon. Adults who are of legal drinking age can add a bottomless beverage to their buffet. Choose from champagne, Bloody Marys, bottomless mimosas, and Bud Light Draft packages.
Seriously, though. Imagine a leisurely Sunday brunch or lazy Saturday afternoon, some great company, and a plate filled with your favorites. The server ensures your glasses of mimosas, champagne, bloody marys, or draft are never empty. It sounds a little like perfection, doesn’t it?
The bottomless beverage addition is $21 per person, and there is one caveat. Bottomless drinks are limited to two hours. You don’t want to get too tipsy while hitting up the omelet station or dessert bar.
If bottomless drinks brought to your table aren’t your thing, there’s also a full selection of cocktails, wines, beer, and specialty brunch sips. Juices, soda, and coffee or tea are complimentary with the buffet.
