Lots of foods have their special day – spaghetti, whipped cream, bagels, popcorn, as you call it. But some even get a whole month. And what would you expect from one of the best creations that has ever graced our planet? The burger is just a perfect thing, a balance of meat, bread and all toppings you can imagine. And while you might think you’ve already had the best burger of your life, think again! Las Vegas is celebrating National Burger Month in a big way, and there is something you must explore and discover. Come on!
Anyone who follows celebrity chef Bobby Flay knows he’s a huge fan of the burger. No doubt you’ve seen some of his delicious creations on the Food Network over the years. Now you can experience Flay’s burger passion up close in his new restaurant at Caesars Palace, Bobby’s Burgers by Bobby Flay. There is so much to be seduced here and everyone has the flay touches you have come to know and love. There’s the crunchburger with cheese and potato chips (a flay favorite) and the nacho burger with queso, tomato salsa, and pickled jalapeños (see this week’s title page).
Sickie’s Garage Burgers & Brews in Town Square added four new burgers to its already impressively decadent menu to celebrate the occasion. There are lots of imaginative, original creations here, but some you’ll definitely want to try: The Sickcilian, a sausage patty with marinara, hot peppers, chilli peppers, provolone cheese, ham, lettuce and mayo; and the mozzerati, half a pound of Angus beef burger patties with deep-fried curds, marinara, and mozzarella. (Insider tip: sign up for the rewards program to get a free burger!)
For a change from the usual ground beef burger, check out the ultra-flavourful jerk turkey burger in downtown Carson Kitchen. It’s part of a new spring menu from Chef / Owner Cory Harwell and Chef Scott Simon and a revelation served with mango chutney coleslaw.
Order the hangover burger at Favorite Bistro on Linq Promenade for a really over the top experience. Made from half a pound of Black Angus beef and smothered with caramelized onions, Swiss cheese, cheese sauce, fries with bacon, ketchup demi, mayo, and an egg with the sunny side up, it’s hard to say if this is supposed to cure a hangover or give you one. Either way, it’s unforgettable, and like the movie it’s named after, it’s Vegas too!
Some of you want this burger experience, but you are a vegetarian or vegan. No problem! There are options across town, but for one of the best, head to Hearthstone at Red Rock Resort for an Impossible burger with some delicious toppings like vegan cheddar, fresh vegetables, vegan mayonnaise, and avocado spread.
