Las Vegas buffets for vegetarian...worth the expense?

uptown | Mar 14, 2013 07:27 PM

I’ll be Vegas for a few days with a car. It has been several years since I last visited and during that time I transitioned to a vegetarian diet. I’ve searched this board as well as tripadvisor, yelp, and miscellaneous blogs for recommendations and ideas for restaurants. Are buffets worth the expense? After all, it’s great if you’re a big eater (I am not) and an omnivore.

I read glowing reviews of Caesars (Bacchanal), Cosmopolitan (Wicked Spoon) and Wynn, but then I check out their prices and really have to question if I want to spend $38 - $46 (before tax and tip) for dinner. Weekday breakfast and lunches are a little more reasonable. Weekend brunches seem highly overpriced (for a vegetarian). Notwithstanding my patience for standing in line (45 minutes would be my limit), do those buffets in particular offer a superior dining experience for a vegetarian? Or do you leave having enjoyed a nice salad bar and some roasted vegetables?

Alternatively, what about some of the (slightly) less expensive buffets, which have, at times, received favorable reviews:

Planet Hollywood (Spice Market) $31
Rio (best days behind it?) $31
Mirage $28?
Paris $32

I don’t know if the prices are correct. Those were posted on

Any opinions from recent diners?
