Caesars Palace Bacchanal Buffet Should Be On Your List

I'm not so sure I should be getting excited about a buffet at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. I mean it's not like in days long gone when I would rush into the Westward Ho for a feast for $2.99. Do the people at Caesars Palace really want me to ignore Old HomesteadBeijing Noodle No.9, Rao's or Serendipity 3 and instead feast on an all-you-can-eat spread of possible mediocrity? Should I disregard the fact that Chef Nobu is serving sushi nearby or that Gordon Ramsay has beer and comfort food around the corner?

I think so. It is very possible that the buffet at Caesars Palace will just increase the food options right to the point where everything you could possibly need when it comes to food will now be available in one spot. You don't have to ignore all the other great restaurants at Caesars Palace but bringing back the buffet has just given you more options.

I think it is highly possible that Caesars Palace is going to attempt to raise the bar on the buffet. The Bacchanal Buffet features 9 show kitchens in 25,000 square feet with a view of the pool. Maybe I should be getting excited about a buffet in Las Vegas. I think I could get into some wood fired pizzas, crab legs by the dozen and dim sum. Let's face it, if the price is right and the quality is anything like we have come to expect from Caesars Palace, this could be a great casual addition to the massive choices at the hotel.

So, yes, you should be eating at the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace.

It doesn't mean you should ignore the other spots, but you need to get excited about an all-you-can-eat fest at Caesars Palace Las Vegas.
