Respond to Review of Wynn Casino Buffet
by SynthVegan

Review: I admit I was a skeptic...a plethora of vegan options at a Las Vegas buffet? Get out of here, that's a lie! But it's true, I couldn't believe my eyes. Before we paid to get into the buffet I inquired about these so-called vegan options thinking that there may only be one or two things for me. To my surprise they gave me the option to have a chef personally walk me around and tell me what's vegan-friendly and what can be made vegan upon request. The chef was great, personable, and very knowledgeable about the plant-based diet. He walked me through every dish and nearly every ingredient, I felt like I was getting star-treatment. At the end of my little tour I realized I could have at least half of the offerings on the buffet...and that, my friends, is exactly what I did. I never get to eat at buffets, I exercise, and eat healthy at home, so why not?!?! I enjoyed many things such as Alfredo pasta (custom-made at the pasta station), many different kinds of salads (quinoa salad, chickpea salad, etc.), many kinds of veggies, vegan tomato soup, sushi, ethnic dishes (aloo gobi, channa masala, etc.), candied apples, and the best vegan chocolate chip cookie baked on this planet. Mind you, there were many vegan things I just couldn't get to...I filled up sooner than I would have liked. Overall, this was a great experience, the Wynn is simply impressive. I highly recommend the buffet to vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike.

Couldn't agree more! What a good idea, having a vegan (Steve Wynn) run a hotel with multiple restaurants! It was the first experience I've ever had with family, where the meat-eaters were eying my plate with envy. We did the buffet for dinner (many, many excellent choices) then went back for breakfast the next day at the Terrace Pointe Cafe. They had a sizable 'Vegetarian' menu and when I asked if any could be made vegan, the waitress explained "They're all vegan". Wow.

Seriously, you should go.
