Caesars Palace: Bacchanal Buffet Opening September 2012

Caesars Palace newly renovated buffet with a new old name Bacchanal Buffet is scheduled to make its debut in September 2012, just in time for your feedbag loving VIMFP'ers. I smell a field trip!

The Caesars folks are so amped they sent around a "trailer" for the damn buffet, the first i've ever seen for a buffet and an infinitely more tantalizing piece of video production than the silly ARIA short films and the dopey Cosmopolitan commercials.

In an earlier era, Bacchanal at Caesars Palace represented the decadence of a Roman feast set within a fine dining atmosphere; before closing in 2000, the restaurant became famous for bringing Caesars Palace-style entertainment to the gourmet experience.

Next month, Bacchanal will make its return to Caesars Palace as the new Bacchanal Buffet, a 21st Century adaptation that will serve up an over-the-top feast created by a team of master chefs, offering the most variety on the Las Vegas Strip. Bacchanal Buffet will feature more than 500 items, from classic favorites such as made-to-order omelets, the freshest seafood and roasted meats like prime rib to cutting edge, regional comfort food like breakfast pizzas, red velvet pancakes, wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas and Chinese dim sum, even roasted South Carolina shrimp and grits.

The 25,000 square-foot homage to eating will feature seating for 600 guests in a unique design canvas of glass, wood and steel, incorporating a modern aesthetic of clean lines, natural recycled and reclaimed materials, and a priceless view of the world-famous Garden of the Gods pool complex.

Bacchanal Buffet will showcase a team of master chefs led by executive chef Scott Green, including an award-winning pastry chef, and progressive presentations featuring individually plated items, small plates, numerous cooking stations, and a staggering dessert display. With chefs front-and-center at Bacchanal Buffet, visitors will be awed by not only the vast choices, but the freshness of the food and overall innovative design of the space.

The Bacchanal Buffet will be open daily from 7am to 10pm, serving breakfast ($19.99), lunch ($24.99) and a seafood-featured dinner ($39.99). The buffet will be available within the Buffet of Buffet pass for a $10 supplemental charge.

Bring. It. On.

We'll definitely give it a try as well.

I'm actually proud of Caesars for using the Bacchanal name. In an era where Vegas seems to gleefully erase any trace of past tradition (*cough* Murren), it's refreshing to see a nod to something old school.

Now if they could just put back the twinkling stars on the ceiling in the Rainman suite...

Awesome I'm ready.
"When we recline at a banquet, one wipes up the spittle; another, situated beneath [the table], collects the leavings of the drunks."

twofours: ya think that'll be included in the price or only available to Total Rewards members?

Damn, I have to visit this when I hit Vegas again. After watching this I am hungry all of a sudden.

Really happy to see Caesers back in the buffet business..the first Vegas buffet I ever tried was the former Emperors Buffet in 2001 and it was excellent..$24 for lunch seems like the best play here...

Anyone ever dine at the old "Bacchanal"? They had wine goddesses who would come by and give you a neck massage as you dined. Wow, I really miss the old Vegas. It's one of the reasons I still frequent CP. Still killing since Jay Sarno opened the joint....

I'm with Robbi, very happy to see CET embrace the tradition here. When talking to the bartender at Bradley Ogden, he mentioned that many of the servers were applying for positions at the buffet rather then wait for the GastroPub to open in December.

The lines.. The lines.. I can only imagine with the buffet of buffets pass...

@damania, I don't think they'll be getting too many Buffet of Buffets folks at the Bacchanal Buffet seeing as there is a $10 supplemental charge for it with the Buffet of Buffet pass.

I'm thrilled they're bringing back the Bacchanal name, especially since it's so appropriate for a buffet. I thought at first that the trailer/advert was an NBC Olympics piece, but good for them for getting the word out. It sounds like it might be a hybrid of the Wynn & Cosmo/Wicked Spoon buffets. The $10 BoB surcharge will weed out a bit of the snaking line, hopefully.

BTW, I first ate in that space (I assume it was Cafe Lago then) in 2003, and all I remember is that we ordered a la carte at a late dinner, and they had Frank Sinatra's old piano in the middle of the dining room. Does anyone else remember that? And where was the original Bacchanal situated in the property? (I've got a very vintage Caesars property map somewhere, but I've never been able to make much sense of it.)


I finally watched the trailer, and I swear they just used the music from the original Iron Chef (Japan). I half expected the chairman to come out and bite on the pepper.
