It opens on Sept 10th with over 500 items.

dinner. No thanks..

40 bucks? I can eat for a week on that and that's even throwing in a prime rib and some gas to grill it.

USA Today Link on the Buffet

That extra $15 is for some made-to-order items. Unless they dedicate a very, very large area for dining I think they might have an issue with people sticking around too long. That 2-3 extra minutes people have to wait to get food will add up, lessening the amount of customers they can serve per hour. Nonetheless, if I'm in the area I will most definitely hit it up.

More important, will it be part of the buffet of buffets promo? Or will it be an extra?

They charge extra for the Village Seafood buffet at the Rio ($15), I bet they'd do the exact same thing here.

I'd try it once anyways. Bellagio is best I've had so far, and reason is pretty good quality and I like to try a little of this and a little of that. For a nice buffet I just have that to eat all day and fill up.

Not me, I'm perverse. I only get the stuff
worth the money. Smoked salmon, worth
its weight in silver. Prime rib. King crab.
Oysters Rockefeller. Any expensive steak,
like NY strip. I want my $40 worth. Screw
salads and desert (I'm sugar free) or bread.
I'll eat 36 oysters and 12oz of smoked
salmon. Seriously.

I do crab legs until I want to throw up, then I take a short break drinking something and eat some more. I'm the exact same way, I need to feel like I got the better of them when I leave the restaurant.

It's rare that I ever agree 100% with you Bob, but this is one where I'm with you. If there is smoked salmon on a buffet, I load up an entire plate of just that. I think it's my favorite food in the world.

I didn't say I want salad! I go for the good stuff, but again a little of this and a little of that. And the best part is if they have a variety of deserts. Yummers.
