Steve Wynn is definitely the person who changed the image of Las Vegas. His visions, along with his associates developed The Bellagio Resorts "Dancing Fountains," The Mirage with its Volcano and the remarkable Wynn Resort and Encore.

I have dined in many a fine dining restaurants throughout the country, including my share of buffets. The Wynn is the most beautiful, providing its patrons with a relaxed dining journey in rich surroundings. Beautiful Italian marble floors and luxurious drapes surround the light green background throughout the dining area. Lavish chandeliers with Christmas ornaments add to the colorful environment.

The ambiance is most important to set the stage. Now comes the services offered. There's a private lavatory facility inside the dining area, allowing diners to freshen up without going into the casino area. It's opulence like no other, only the way Steve Wynn would have it. " We specialize in the experience for our customers," states Wynn. Wynn's statement would be a good idea for other hotels to work on, rather than building more hotel rooms.

VIP’s for instance who don't have a blazer or are wearing shorts are escorted to the shopping area and given the proper attire for dining. Class has always been a priority at all Wynn properties.

The 15 station includes a shellfish section with such items as Tomato Gazpacho, Seaweed-cucumber salad and Sushi. Spiced salmon, shrimp, tempura, vegetable role, crab avocado cucumber, BBQ Negiri and Spicy seafood are some of the delectable choices, along with crab legs. The chilled seafood includes spicy red pepper hummus, spiced garbanzo beans, guacamole, and corn salsa.

The Wynn Buffet has the most highest standards with the equipment used in preparing their cuisine. The chefs are of such a versatile culture that nothing is sparred in creating dishes from all over the world especially that of Asian appeal. Regardless weather its Pad Thai, or any variation of noodles, everything is prepared to perfection and nothing is left to long to spoil the dining adventure.

The meat section of our dining journey has patrons enjoying oven roasted turkey with keys aujus, mashed potatoes with fried shallots, green onions adding to the sumptuous taste. Sirloin tip, prime rib, lamb, garnish hen and sea bass, salmon are all prepared with flavorful sauces.

For those who have large appetites, Chipotle BBQ glazed meatloaf with caramelized pearl onions and crispy bacon londons will be very filling.

Other items include Pork Cheddar Bratwurst, Italian sausage, chicken sausage. Add cranberry beans, garlic roasted cauliflower with parmesan cheese, pesto sauce and toasted pine nuts, and you'll be in Heaven, Ah, that's not all. There's a complete pasta station which serves Gluten free pasta upon request. Now that our culinary journey is coming to an end, I would suggest you not forget to enjoy one of Wynn's colorful salads. I recommend the Kale salad with honey glazed walnuts, pine nuts and cranberries.

A never ending dining journey wouldn’t be complete without some of their homemade desserts prepared in their own bakery. Crepes are prepared on a made to order basis with a choice of strawberry, apricot, peach apple and real whipped cream. There's such a diverse selection of deserts to marvel at that I would suggest partaking in small portions in your dining journey to taste all the wonderful dishes. With a wonderful evening of dining and conversation with my guest Anthony Wilson, a cup of Espresso ended are evening in a delightful spirit. Hours of operation are 8am-3pm and for dinner 3:30pm-10pm. The Wynn Resort address is 3131 Las Vegas Blvd. Call for reservations at (702) 248-3463. Celebrity Scene News awards The Wynn Buffet 5 stars for their ambiance, quality of cuisine, presentation of cuisine, and service.
