Good morning lovelies!
I hope everyone had a great weekend, and those of you that are in the US, I hope you had an awesome Memorial day long weekend!
I promised you last week that I would get a little post together about a crazy good meal we had when we were in Vegas last weekend, so here it is! I am going to jump right into it because I have a lot to get done today.
The restaurant I am talking about is the Buffet at the Wynn. I know, I know, you’re probably thinking, ‘a buffet? really?’ of all the restaurants in Vegas it seems really odd to review a buffet. BUT I promise you that this will be the best brunch buffet you ever go to. It’s crazy!
They run a regular breakfast buffet from Monday – Friday that I believe costs somewhere around $21, which is pretty much on par with all the other hotel buffets, although I can assure you this one is better. THEN on the weekend, they run their famous brunch buffet which costs $31 (I think.) I couldn’t find the prices posted on their website so don’t hold me to that. I know it is definitely just over $30. Now I know that seems super expensive for breakfast and if you’re not a huge foodie or a big eater, you might not really get much out of it. We originally went with a couple of the other people on the trip and we were the only ones that decided to bite the bullet and go. For the others they didn’t think it was worth it for them personally, and I totally understand that. If you’re a foodie, though, you’re in for a treat.
Please excuse the iphone photos, I chose not to bring my DSLR to Vegas for a couple reasons, mainly because I didn’t want to lug it around the whole time and I was worried it might get broken/stolen/lost with all the shenanigans that seem to go on in Vegas.
I showed you a couple photos of the Wynn in my last post, but here are a couple more of the entry way into the hotel & casino.
It was so gorgeous! There were tons of flowers everywhere and the trees were all lit up.
The buffet it self is beautiful as well, it kind of has a French garden theme, with topiaries, fruit and more flowers. The tables and chairs were really pretty as well. The atmosphere is definitely elegant yet relaxed.
It’s pretty similar to most other buffets in that they sit you down and serve you whatever beverages you want, and then you just have a free for all with the food. Mr. Delish decided the best plan of attack was to do a walk around to scope out what they had, then we could decide what to eat first. It sounds funny and trust me I wasn’t taking him seriously when he was describing his ‘master plan,’ but it was really a good idea. If you just went up and started from the beginning, you definitely would have a full plate before you even got onto the second station.
We started out at their cold station, they had charcuterie, cold salads, buns, breadsticks, olives, pickles and all those kind of things. We didn’t get a photo of that area because were were starving at that point.
I ended up with a pretzel bun, some grapes, salami, cheese and some PERFECTLY cooked shrimp with homemade tartar sauce. It was delicious and the perfect appetizer.

We snacked away on that and had some coffee and then went back for some hot food.
Their main event is their prime rib and hand cut slab bacon.
Ummm, heck yes. Mr. Delish was all over both, but I ended up having just the bacon because I didn’t want to go overboard.
They also had a sausage station that had big coils of sausages that they would slice for you. I tried a little piece of each of the ones they had, and they were all delicious! The best one was a chicken jalepeno sausage, that was to die for.
After that I was feeling super full already but I wasn’t going to give in just yet! We hadn’t even gotten to the desserts yet.
We didn’t make it to any of the other hot food, but they also had an Asian station that had sushi as well as dim sum, some different stir fries and noodle dishes.
We decided to have something to refresh our palates a little bit, and they had these these cute little fruit cups that were perfect!
I got the watermelon & mint:
And he got the grapefruit & basil:
So yummy. They definitely do not settle for the ordinary here at the Wynn, they go totally above and beyond to make sure the food looks and tastes great.
Finally, it was time for the desserts! My favorite part.
The one side had a bunch of mini desserts as well as gelato and candy apples.
The one above is one of the ones I tried, it was a mini tres leches cake! SO darn good. I swear one of the best dessert bites I have ever had.
It was topped with a homemade marshmallow, YUM. Again talk about over the top.
There was another side to the dessert section which I decided to take a little video tour of! This is my first YouTube video and I am planning to make more.
If you subscribe to my channel missdelishblog you will get updates when I have a new video. I am thinking of doing some walk through recipes and I have some other ideas as well but if you think of anything you’d like to see, please comment below! I would love to try some of your ideas.
So that was the end of the Wynn Brunch Buffet, we were SO full and we had to go on a big walk to burn off some of that yummy food in our bellies. We thoroughly enjoyed this buffet and I really do think that if you love food, it is a must do when you’re in Las Vegas.
I hope you enjoyed this little mini tour and let me know if you’re interested in seeing more posts like this.
