It’s too soon to say whether the new Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars will unseat Wicked Spoon (now a two-time winner of this category) from its perch. We can say it won’t be easy to top Wicked’s sublime selections of pecan sticky buns and Guinness pancakes at breakfast; assorted salumi, smoked salmon, an imaginative Korean beef salad, and a terrific BLT salad at lunch; and whole legs of lamb, flavorful chorizo-stuffed salmon, beef ribs on the bone and roasted bone marrow at dinner. And that’s not even mentioning the Asian section, where Korean-style kalbi short ribs and dim sum reign supreme. Plus, we just love those individually sized Staub cast-iron pans that many dishes are served in.
