The Nevada Democratic Caucus is tomorrow. As a giant political nerd, we’re pretty excited for what’s being touted as a tiebreaker (current polls show Obama with a 2% lead over Clinton) and as an eater, we’d love to pay some sort of gustatory tribute to the state. Therein lies a bit of a challenge. It turns out that Nevada (unlike our own state) doesn’t really have any state foods. Wikipedia was similarly no help and we don’t actually know anyone from Nevada. We sat and thought long and hard about what we think of when we think of Nevadan food and one dining experience sprung to our head: buffets. Here are three of the Hub’s best.
•Midwest Grill gets our vote for the Hub’s best churrascaria. $10.95 at lunch or $23.95 for dinner gets you all the meat you can eat, along with hot, cold, and vegetarian buffets.
•For an extra kick of Americana, attend a buffet on board the Spirit of Boston cruise ship. Lunch cruises cost $40 and dinners go for $72-85 and include high-end treats like roasted prime rib and chocolate Marquis cake.
•To our mind, the ne plus ultra of Boston-area buffets is the all-you-can-eat brunch at Henrietta’s Table, served every Sunday from 12pm-3pm. $39 may seem steep for brunch, but when you look at the menu, which includes a made-to-order omelet station and a selection of cheeses, pates, and terrines, it suddenly seems quite reasonable.
