There's nothing average about Le Burger Brasserie inside Paris Las Vegas. The casual dining restaurant can be as sophisticated as -- well -- you are. The restaurant takes burgers to new heights with the addition of some tasty takes on traditional American favorites.
For appetizers, try "pommes frites de luxe.".A cross between nachos and loaded fries, this loaded dish contains grilled chicken, avocado, caramelized onion and tomatoes. Hot and bubbly melted cheese tops it off and all is served over a basket of zesty waffle fries. The dish is garnished with sliced olives and scallions and served with sour cream.
Of course, if you can't make up your mind, "le combinaison" is the way to go -- a hodge-podge of wings, chicken tenders, potato skins, onion rings, shrimp and celery and carrot sticks, served with ranch and blue cheese dressing.
Usually at a burger joint it's not a good idea to order a salad. But Le Burger Brasserie serves crisp salads like the "coupé," a chopped salad with diced salami, cheese, tomatoes, avocado, cucumbers, red peppers and Italian dressing. This hearty and refreshing salad is a great option for those who want to leave full, but keep healthy.
In addition to an extensive burger selection, the restaurant also has non-burger entrées such as steaks, salmon and chicken.
But let's face it, you've come for the burgers. "Le Boeuf" or the beef offers guests a half-pound grilled beef patty made from 100 percent Black Angus.
"Le Bleu" burger, topped with bleu cheese, avocado and smoked bacon goes particularly well with the caramelized onion bun, but the other four buns like whole wheat and Parmesan cheese, all baked in-house, also serve as good foundations to this burger.
Beyond the beef, Le Burger Brasserie serves beef burger alternatives like "Le Saumon" (salmon), "Le Poulet" (chicken), and "L'agneau" (lamb). These options come with various toppings like brie cheese and caramelized shallots or prosciutto and mushrooms.
There is even a vegetarian burger. However, with burgers like "Le Turquie" (turkey) there is no need to go vegetarian. The turkey patty starts with fresh ground turkey with garlic and Parmesan and spices and makes for a flavorful burger. Add cranberry sauce and goat cheese and it's like reliving Thanksgiving in every bite.
For dessert, try the sorbet trio, or the beignets, served with chocolate dipping sauce and a scoop of whipped cream.
Le Burger Brasserie serves delicious burgers, conveniently locate in the hall that connects Paris and Bally's.
