The Wicked Spoon: Where to Start Your Vegas Adventure
“A bustling culinary food hall, the Wicked Spoon delivers well-crafted original selections for every appetite. With its mix of top quality, familiar staples and imaginative seasonal dishes, this Las Vegas eatery satisfies cravings and invites discovery.”
Wicked Spoon is located in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. When the hotel and casino was erected on the west side of the Las Vegas Boulevard, it triggered heads to turn, enticed a new crowd, and filled a niche. The Cosmo’s two towers, casino spa and casino beach club, give Vegas goers a kinetic resort for fun, play, and dining.
The buffet is handsomely designed with golds, browns, and oranges, stylistic decorative features on the walls and gilding the ceiling. The chefs at Wicked Spoon create small plates and spoonfuls of food items, in bold contrast to many other buffets and restaurants. The cuisine includes foods from America, Mexico, and Asia. This allows each diner to personalize, portion out, and enjoy a wide variety of options. A liberating concept and welcome experience in a town of excess and overabundance. Highlights of the restaurant are the carving station, ceviche, Asian food bar, and the desserts. The service I experienced was excellent. The waiter and staff was attentive, anticipated when my party needed something, and worked hard.
1. The Wicked Spoon is located at 3708 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada. This is a walkable distance from other hotels and casinos, such as Caesars Palace and The LINQ. From further distances use a taxi or car service.
2. Peak times occur during week days and nights, especially on weekends and after shows within the casinos. Dining before or after peak times can ensure a more pleasant mealtime.
3. The daily bottomless brunch with mimosas and Bloody Mary's is an excellent way to indulge and start your day in Las Vegas.
4. Several of the buffet items at Wicked Spoon are tempting, including the pancakes, sausages, and their famous desserts. The bone marrow on my visit was too oily for my liking, although many other diners have enjoyed a better experience with it. The following were my favorites.
