A Delicious Italian Lunch Buffet at the Mohegan Sun: Todd English’s Tuscany
This afternoon, Mike and I had lunch at Todd English’s Tuscany, located inside the beautiful Mohegan Sun resort. The Mohegan Sun is a 5 star casino resort in southeastern Connecticut. Many great dining options are available including Tuscany. This Italian restaurant owned by celebrity chef Todd English serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I highly recommend ordering the “Tuscan Table” lunch buffet. Every Monday-Friday from 11:30AM until 3:00PM the buffet is offered. The price normally runs $23 a person but we lucked out by visiting on “Diva Friday’s” where the special is 2 for $30.
The Tuscan Table
The “Tuscan Table” included a selection of fantastic offerings including: various salads, a tomato soup, flat bread pizzas, meats, roasted potatoes and squash, several different pastas, mussels, breads, and a decent selection of desserts including tiramisu. The chocolate mint cake and lemon cookies were so good! I really liked all the options offered on the buffet line and thought it was a fantastic deal for the price. Being a vegetarian, I didn’t try out any of the meat dishes but all the salads were wonderful (Caesar, southwestern bean, penne pesto) as were the roasted vegetables. The only item I didn’t like was the bread – it tasted a bit stale.
Update: A new Tuscan Brunch experience is now offered on weekends from 10am-2:30pm. Check the full menu of offerings.
You have the option of dining inside or outside on the terrace. The terrace features a full bar and spectacular views of the waterfalls. I would have preferred to dine outside on the terrace but chose to sit inside in order to take advantage of the buffet special. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the classy rustic charm of the inside dining room.
I definitely recommend checking out the lunch buffet at Todd English’s Tuscany on your visit to the Mohegan Sun. A great value given the decent selection of entrees, sides, and desserts, all served in a nice atmosphere. Next time I would like to order from the dinner menu and enjoy a seat on the terrace by the waterfalls.
