Since we were already in the Mandalay Bay (doing a little pre-opening check of FLEUR), we thought a better burger was befitting our beneficence.
So we begged for some boffo bison.
Lean, rare, coarsely ground, and perfectly cooked, it was a buffalo bonanza of beefiness….but with a lighter touch…and 30% less calories according to Burgermeister Keller himself.
It’s called the Hubert Keller Burger on the menu, and features sautéed onions, blue cheese and fresh spinach piled on top of the meat, all of it sandwiched between some remarkably fresh ciabatta bread.
Our staff even liked the Caesar salad. Not a great one, mind you, but not bad, especially for a burger bar.
Our lunch above, with a brewski, came to $40.
