Famous, or infamous depending on your perspective the Burger Bar serves what may be the most expensive hamburger on the planet. Celebrity chef Keller has cornered the luxury burger market with his ‘Rossini Burger’ priced at $60. This heart stopping indulgence is named for the classic French sauce made with foie gras, shaved black truffles and madera sauce. At the Burger Bar it’s served over a grilled Kobe beef patty inside an onion bun. OK, I hear you… may want to just go with the myriad of other options including the ‘Keller Burger’ at a mere $22 a pop.
If you are still on an expense account, let yourself go, otherwise order carefully, these are super good burgers - top notch in fact. The restaurant has a great selection of Belgian Ales, as well as an excellent wine list. Might just be a tad over the top for all excepting the Vegas crowd, but the Burger Bar certainly does for the iconic burger joint what ‘Hot Dog on a Stick’ did for the corn dog.
