FUUD: Wicked Spoon Buffet in Las Vegas

When I asked readers to send me suggestions for places to eat in Las Vegas, I kept seeing one name pop up:

Wicked Spoon Buffet.

Now, I’m not a huge fan of buffets in general. For starters, I never eat my money’s worth. (And you can’t fill take-out containers. Trust me, I know.) And, let’s be honest, the food is never all that good.

But the Wicked Spoon is not your typical Vegas buffet.

The ambiance is uber chic. The variety is mind-boggling. The cost — $22 for daily brunch, $29 for weekend brunch, $35 for dinner — was affordable. And the food, well, it actually tasted good.

Here’s what the buffet looked like:
