A new era in buffet dining
Offering all-day dining, Fontana Buffet reimagines the buffet experience. Inspired by the world’s great food halls, the restaurant features Chinese and Western favorites in a dynamic market kitchen. Diners can feast on a range of specialties at ten distinct food stations, each curated by an expert purveyor to showcase the season’s most spectacular ingredients. Even while relaxing in a casual setting, each guest is also treated to stunning views overlooking the Performance Lake, from which the restaurant gets its Italian name.
Focusing on quality rather than quantity, small bites are passed fresh directly from the kitchen, taking guests to the next level of buffet dining. Chefs can recommend the dishes of the day and select the ideal ingredients of the season, creating a curated tour of delectable flavors.
The restaurant is a two-tier theater, a space to celebrate with family and friends, offering views of the fountains. Its décor is inspired by the architecture, porcelains, textiles and furnishings of the Ming dynasty, a magnificent reinvention of Chinoiserie design for the 21st-century.
Representing the timeless and enduring influence of the arts of China on European and American design, the dazzling Viaradot Dragon mirror collection by renowned Chinoiserie artist Gabriel-Frédéric Viaradot creates a centerpiece in the buffet area. It took five years of international travel to complete the collection.
