The Sterling Brunch

Was just reading an article how BLT Steak will be "adopting" this. Why have I never heard of this brunch in here or elsewhere and has anyone been there in the past? Not at BLT Steak obviously but in the previous location. Interested for my next trip in September.

    The buffet has been mentioned prior on this board with very mixed reviews. In the past, the buffet has only been on Sundays and over $100 per person with tax and tip.

      Interesting...I have no problem with the price, if its worth it. I'll have to wait and see what people think when they reopen it at BLT. Maybe one of our fellow chowhounds will take the(rather expensive) plunge and let us know.

        It is on my short list. Probably not before July due to travel plans, but perhaps.

          I won't be back in Vegas until September, so I look forward to hearing what you have to say about it.

        I have not gone, but a friend of mine went on opening weekend. Here's what she sent me via text:

        "The lobster tails were too salty for my taste, but the half lobster with stuffing was better. Crab cakes were lacking. My brother's favorite was the truffle mashed potatoes. We tried the caviar, but I don't think any of us have acquired a palate sophisticated enough to really know what was going on with it. They also had fresh oysters, pretty good. Crab legs were legit king crab legs, not the half legs that were split open, frozen, and thawed again. They also had some sushi/sashimi, omelette station, steak bites (over cooked and maybe sitting too long?), mini chive frittatas (those were nicely done), roast beef, breakfast sausages and bacon, mini Belgian waffles with fruit (waffles were good), berry cups and yogurt parfait. Desserts were kind of your basic Vegas buffet spread, still yummy. Overall, not a big selection in terms of variety, but given quality of a few I think I would give it a 7/10."

        Champagne is unchanged from before. From the text, looks like there are two lobster preparations. I don't know if I'd pay $100 after tax and tip to eat there from what my friend said. I didn't ask any questions to clarify or get more info, but I trust her taste.

          Sounds really pricey for what is offered.

            Agreed, but since I don't understand the attraction of Vegas buffets in the first place, it's a bit of a non-issue for me . . .

              The Perrier Jouet Champagne is what would entice me- I don't eat enough to make any buffet worthwhile, but I can certainly drink my moneys worth:)
