Rio Hotel & Casino Re-launches Seafood Buffet
The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas reopened its seafood buffet yesterday after extensively remodeling the 13,000-square-foot space.
The Village Seafood Buffet, which claims to be Las Vegas' only seafood-centric buffet, annually purchases more than 200 tons of seafood from around the globe, including Pacific salmon, Alaska king crab, Canadian snow crab, Indonesian prawns, Chinese shrimp and Southeast Asian slipper lobster tails.
Made-to-order sushi, prepared in front of the guests, is also available, as are sommeliers to help diners pair seafood with wine.
The refurbished space features a new ocean-themed entrance and commissioned artwork from Brad Holland.
Open seven days a week, the buffet costs $38 per person (plus tax) and $23.99 for children ages 4 to 8. Children under age 3 eat for free.
The 2,563-room Rio is owned by Harrah's Entertainment of Las Vegas, the world's largest gaming company, with more than $7 billion in annual sales.
