Jul 8, 2003 3:59 AM

Due to popular demand, Le Village Buffet at Paris Las Vegas has expanded.

Le Village now offers 60 additional seats, bringing the total capacity of this entertaining dining experience to 500.

In addition to the renowned gourmet fare, the buffet will now offer two new and unique food stations: La Grillade and La Raclette.

La Raclette (which comes from the French word "racler" meaning "to scrape") will feature melted cheese accompanied by a medley of cured meats, steamed potatoes, assorted vegetables and French bread.

La Grillade (grill), which will be displayed in the window of the buffet for passersby on Le Boulevard, will feature a selection of assorted skewers of meat, seafood and sausages grilled to perfection.

"Since Paris opened four years ago, Le Village has become known as one of the few ”˜gourmet buffets’ in Las Vegas with its incredible selection of food items," says Robert Zitto, senior vice president of food and beverage. "By expanding our seating capacity and our food offerings, we will continue to offer the superb quality and variety that has made Le Village so popular with guests."

A departure from the traditional Las Vegas-style buffet, the dining experience takes buffet dining to a higher echelon by featuring live-action stations, the freshest ingredients and food cooked to order in a remarkable French village setting.

Le Village Buffet brings to life five provinces of France through culinary expertise and visual attention to detail. Each station is themed for a particular province and features an intricate façade designed to replicate the architecture of that region. Meals are prepared as they are ordered to ensure the quality and freshness of each selection.

The Brittany station specializes in crepes, while Normandy offers the freshest seafood and fish. Burgundy features prime rib, ham, rotisserie chicken, veal stew and pork chops. Alsace offers traditional chicken mushroom vol-au-vent, stuffed croissants, grilled Alsacian sausage and salmon scrambled eggs.

Le Jardin station offers fresh chilled seafood, cheeses native to the regions, fruits, salads, soups and just-baked breads. The Bretagne station offers an assortment of beverages as well as alcoholic drinks in souvenir glasses. A large selection of pastries, pies and an assortment of sugar-free delicacies are offered from the buffet’s dessert station.

Guests dine in a village-like setting, where they may choose to eat outside in the town square or in a casual dining room by a fireplace. Each province’s cottage dining room is decorated for the region.
