Wicked Spoon Buffet
3708 Las Vegas Blvd South

The Cosmopolitan was the latest and greatest hotel to open in 2011. Its buffet is called Wicked Spoon. Some have called it the next great buffet after Wynn and Bellagio, so we had to give it a visit. Our last visit was in the summer of 2014.
Summary – Nice buffet with a wide variety of food including ones you do not find at other buffets, beautiful location. Many individual dishes.
Insider Tip – Come for Dinner when they have more dishes
Cuisine – International
Location – Las Vegas, Cosmopolitan Hotel
Decor, Vibe – Wicked Spoon is located in a new hotel and looks fantastic. The room as well as the displays are first class.

A good selection of standard salads and fruits. Stand outs include Truffle beet salad and watermelon with Sriracha sauce.
Lots of smoked salmon and house made yogurt.
Bread selection was reasonable but the cheese, deli meat, and soup selection were very small.
On our last visit in 2014, we came here for brunch. There was a custom omelet station along with the usual sausage, bacon, french toast, cereal, etc. Most people including us ignored these dishes and stuck to everything else.
Steamed Crab Legs (dinner), shrimp, not too extensive.
Carved prime rib, Rotisserie Pork Shoulder, Roast Chicken, Rotisserie Turkey during dinner.
During brunch, Wicked Spoon had roast beef, culotee, roast pork tenderloin, several sausages, bone marrow and more.
Something we have never seen at a buffet, roasted bone marrow. Great way to introduce it to the masses.
