Nevada: Atlantis becomes first Reno casino to remake all-you-can-eat dining Johnathan L. Wright, Reno Gazette Journal · August 10, 2020 at 3:55 am It’s just before 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 4, and Toucan Charlie’s Buffet & Grille in the Atlantis casino is preparing to reopen the show after going dark for 139 days under coronavirus safety directives. Stanchions forming customers into socially distanced lines are being checked. A meeting for servers and busers is underway. And marquee players like carved roast ham, a heaping tangle of lo mein fresh from the wok, and enchiladas draped in a cheesy coverlet are being primped for their lunch debuts. Toucan Charlie’s is the first casino buffet in Northern Nevada to resume service, and its reopening offers a local test case of how all-you-can-eat dining, a signature Nevada experience, might adapt to the pandemic.
