Here are today’s five things to know about Buffet:

Traditionally, the “Day to Feast” before the great diet begins

  1. The concept of eating a buffet arose in mid 17th century France, when gentleman callers would arrive at the homes of ladies they wanted to woo unexpectedly. The word simply applied to the piece of furniture known as the “buffet table.”

2. The buffet was popularized in 18th century France and quickly spread throughout Europe.

3. The all-you-can-eat buffet made its restaurant debut in 1946, when it was introduced by Vegas hotel manager Herb MacDonald.

4. By the mid-1960s, virtually every casino in Las Vegas sported its own variation.

5. Today the casino buffet costs a bit more than the average $1.50 price of the 1960s, but the buffets continue to be one of the best deals in Vegas as well as all over the United States.
