Village Seafood Buffet. For lovers of all creatures from the water, the notion of an all-you-can-eat seafood buffet sounds almost too amazing to be true. And, well, it is. In keeping with the around-the-world theme of Rio's standard buffet (Carnival World), the Village Seafood seven seas-themed spread ventures to Mexico (with seafood fajitas), Italy (try the cioppino), China (delicious kung pao scallops), and elsewhere. The relatively steep price ($44.99 per person)
still rewards you with plenty of value—just think what you'd pay à la carte for heaping platters of sushi, lobster, raw shellfish, and the like. Fear not if you despise fish and you're just going along to placate a seafood lover—there's plenty of chicken and beef, including delicious barbecue beef ribs. Rio Las Vegas, 3700 W. Flamingo Rd., West Side, Las Vegas, NV, 89103. 702/777–7943. www.riolasvegas.com. No lunch.
