The Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan
I’m a buffet lover and I recently tried the Wicked Spoon at the CosmopoIitan. It’s on the 2nd floor of the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino. The interior decoration of the restaurant is chic and upscale, like the Cosmo.
Since they have different chefs cooking for the restaurant, their menu changes constantly. Their food offerings are a variety of American cuisine and they also offer creative ethnic dishes and cuisines like Mexican, Asian and other mouthwatering dishes.
The mac and chees bar was perfect! A cook is present at the bar and you can make a request for your pasta orders. You just have to choose your kind of pasta and the toppings and cheese you would want to go with it, and presto! Your pasta will be ready the way you wanted it!
Their creativity in mixing some fruits with other ingredients is commendable. There’s the watermelon with lime, and Sriracha sauce with goat cheese panna cotta, and it deserves a thumbs up.
Their seafood bar was awesome and it has instantly become may favorite. It was a made-to-order bar and like the mac and cheese bar, there was a server to help you with your order the way you would have preferred what’s on your plate.
They have a wide range of meat selection and it was just great. The dessert bar offers a variety of gelato and their chocolate covered strawberry is a winner in its own right. You will have plenty of selections to choose from.
I found their staff as nice, polite and friendly and didn’t mind me asking a lot. My host never took off that nice smile all along and was very attentive to our needs. However, the cashier seemed to me like she was sulky. Maybe because of the long queue she had to deal with.
Brunch, lunch and dinner are offered at the Wicked Spoon and their prices are affordable compared to the other buffet joints at the Strip. Prices varied for each meal but you definitely get your money’s worth.
I would say that all in all, my dining experience was great and I would definitely spend another time to dine at Wicked Spoon. Most of the dishes were new to my eyes and I haven’t seen them at any other buffets I have dined into before. Their Asian section featured those cute little Chinese takeout boxes as container of the chao fan or the Chines fried rice.
The interior decoration is good and makes you feel like home. The restroom is very impressive and immaculately clean and fragrant and it would be one of the many reasons I would go back at Wicked Spoon.
