Less than four months after it opened, Poshburger shuttered its doors last week, bringing a speedy end to a restaurant that was a mistake from the word “go.”
This is not to say that Poshburger didn’t put out a superior product. The burger you see below was probably the best hamburger Las Vegas neighborhoods have ever seen….or ever will see in the foreseeable future.
We even liked the clean, lean decor, the menu on the walls, open kitchen and bench seating (it kinda grew on us).
But the price point was too high, the location too difficult, and the Sum-R-Lamer market too friggin’ cheap and unimaginative to embrace an unknown product, from an unknown chef, in an impossible to see location. (Meanwhile, try getting a seat at Brio any time of the day….all those middle managers and their franchise-loving families love Brio.)
We shed a small tear when we heard the news. Because after only a few bites three months ago, we knew this was the burger we’d been waiting for, for the past two decades.
Sadly though, our predictions turned out to be spot on. This is one time we took no joy in it.
