    We're thinking about treating ourselves to a really good brunch on our next trip and are open to suggestions. We'd like to keep it around or under $40, probably not Bellagio (been there many times for breakfast/lunch/dinner) and we'll be driving so no limits on location. I'm the only real drinker so champagne/no champagne isn't a big deal for us. A crepe station is a big plus for my bride. I'm a sucker for prime rib, but that's not a must. We're just looking for good quality and good variety.

    We had friends who recently tried the remodeled buffet at the Excal and they were impressed. But granted, foodies they are not. I'm leaning towards the Border Grill (technically not a buffet but unlimited small plates). We've never been to the Wynn buffet, so that might be a possibility. We used to love the breakfast buffet at the Paris but were really underwhelmed the last time we tried it.

    Recommendations? Go!

    Border Grill is probably your best option in that price range. I have only been to the one located at MB and its great, but look into what they offer in the forum shop location and see what menu is most appealing to you. I think i read somewhere that the sunday brunch menu is different between the two.
    Out of the regular buffets the only two worth looking into is Cosmo(wicked spoon) and Ceasars (bacchanal) which is head and shoulders above the rest of the regular casino buffets.

    I agree with Border Grille. Unlimited small plates and option to include unlimited mimosas. Around $38.00 I believe.

    Ceasars (bacchanal) is the best by far , then wicked spoon at Cosmo

    Another vote for Border Grill. Personally, they offer options that I wouldn't typically eat any other time for brunch so it's a nice switch-up.

    Thanks for the input, everybody! And good tip on checking the different menus, Bommen. I think we're sold on the Border Grill idea. I realize there's no logical reason to be, but we're still gun-shy about Firefly and we enjoy tapas-style noshing and this could be the next best thing.

    Well then you should give Julian Serrano @ Aria a try. Without exaggerating its at least 10x better then Firefly. Sure its also more expensive but they also have a happy hour Su-th 4-530pm. I mean the tapas and sangrias are outstanding and eating there during happy hour feels like a steel since the regular menu is worth every penny.
