Buffet refresh, poker room part of Beau Rivage project
 BILOXI — Beau Rivage Resort & Casino closed out 2023 in a big way with the opening of a new buffet the week of Thanksgiving and the opening of a new poker room in December. Following a multi-million-dollar refresh, the casino’s new buffet welcomed guests on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 23.
A few weeks later, Beau Rivage upped the ante again for poker players with the opening of a new poker room in December.
“We are thrilled to open our latest gaming amenity specifically for our poker players. Poker now has a permanent home
 Beau Rivage Executive Chef Kristian Wade said the buffet offers guests new food options, including royal reds, Cajun shrimp Alfredo, deep-fried Cajun catfish and other coastal cuisine, along with additional live action stations including a Mongolian grill and dessert station. “This allows us to serve the freshest food possible, efficiently and effectively,” Wade said.
Beau Rivage opened a new poker room in December. The state-of-the-art room is part of a multi-million-dollar project.
The restaurant’s fresh
contemporary design features
bright patterns and a Coastal color palette that complements the original brick, tile and copper motif. Updated carpet, wood plank flooring, paint, lighting and bold wall coverings enhance the space, and the relocation of the salad station created an open floor plan. Modern amenities were added for guest convenience, including a new ice cream station and two new self- serve beverage stations that feature 25 options.
In addition to aesthetic upgrades, the buffet provides new food presentations, including more live cooking stations and smaller portion-sized serving pans that provide attractive displays and, more importantly, better food quality. Residential size serving cookware conducts heat more efficiently to keep food hotter longer.
that is closer to the casino entrance and the base of the conventional level escalators where our major poker tournaments take place,” said Beau Rivage Poker Room Manager Adam Nash. “Our poker players have called our temporary poker room home for a number of years. Our new state- of-the art poker room is part of a larger- scale multi-million-dollar project, and was definitely worth the wait. With the opening of the new room, we are incredibly excited about poker in the new year and beyond.”
Located between the newly refreshed buffet and the Buffalo Zone, adjacent to the convention level escalators, the new 12-table poker room offers guests a comfortable playing environment with the conveniences of modern poker. In addition to functional furnishings, the space also
includes a four-window cashier’s cage, forms display and a dozen 65-inch and larger HDTVs
for keeping up with the latest sports action while not missing a hand.
With the relocation, the smoke-free room remains semi- secluded but players gain an open, bright feeling when being seated at a table. Wood accents and wall millwork, as well as light patterns used for wall coverings, will carry over to the casino floor.
