  • Chef Hubert Keller is widely known for his astounding talents in the kitchen. With his French-born skills learned from working with his family as a child, and then later taken under the wing of highly-acclaimed French chefs as he matured, Chef Keller has delivered a fun, hip concept of "the burger" to the Las Vegas 'Strip' for all to enjoy.

    We still miss the ever popular Fleur de Lys which sat inside of Mandalay Place years ago. I especially loved dining there with my husband behind the privacy-curtained romantic booths with rich textures and an enchanting wall of aromatic live roses. I used to appreciate when our servers would pluck a pink rose from the enormous frame of fresh flowers and deliver it to me as we would depart after a wonderful meal. The original Fleur de Lys still exists in San Fransisco, however. And today, Chef Keller is proud of his new Fleur restaurant where the former Fleur de Lys sat in all its glory, which now features small plate fare and an open expanse featuring a modernized spacious bar and lounge. In addition to Fleur in Mandalay Place, Chef Keller has also produced Burger Bar, which offers a gourmet burger building experience in a trendy atmosphere sure to win the hearts of visiting patrons. It certainly gained our acceptance upon first bite.

    Considered one of the country's most talented chefs, Hubert Keller has created a gourmet burger design concept that's both unique and delectable. The eatery is open and the staff seems genuinely friendly, as though they are welcoming you into their home. Dark woods command your attention, while back-lit enhancements are displayed overhead. An enchanting blue light is cast down over the bar area for contrast. Vintage license plates adorn the walls, and seating options include center tables, bar stools, and comfy booths against one wall with small television screens tucked inside wooden columns. A very eclectic, yet charming environment for taking advantage of such a delightful array of American comfort food.

    We began our burger-building-adventure experience by selecting The Wedge salad to start. This colorful collection of fresh Iceberg lettuce,tomatoes, and blue cheese crumbles was enhanced even more with blue cheese and bacon dressing, fresh sliced red onion rounds, and everyone's favorite...crisp crumbled bacon. A wonderful presentation, vibrant colors, and fresh-tasting to the very last morsel.

    ...THEN CAME THE BURGERS...

    There is a simple procedure to ordering burgers at this establishment:

    1.You choose your protein from a selection of ground lamb, ground buffalo, USDA Prime or black angus beef;

    2.Next, you choose your bun from a variety of breads like sesame, ciabatta, plain, whole wheat, potato or onion;

    3.Then you choose your toppings from a wide array of items such as grilled onions, various cheeses, seafood, sauces, and other delicious favorites.

    If beef isn't your thing, there are alternate options available as well. Like the Chef's Veggie Burger, the Marinated Chicken Breast Burger, the Atlantic Salmon Steak Burger, and even a Turkey Burger. All these are ground straight from the source or shaved and hand-formed into a perfectly-shaped patty almost too beautiful to eat. But looking only isn't allowed at this popular haunt, because once your custom burger is presented before you, you won't think of anything else but getting your hands around it and devouring your perfect creation.

    I was having difficulty deciding between the Atlantic Salmon Steak Burger and the Marinated Chicken Breast Burger (both $9.50 without additions.) They both sounded so incredibly tempting. Something convinced me to go for the salmon. This heavenly, perfectly-proportioned shaved salmon burger was pleasingly satisfying. The ciabatta bun was hearty and tasteful, and the Brie and grilled onions I chose really kicked the flavor barometer up high amplifying the sandwich with creaminess from the Brie and sweetness from the grilled onions.

  • This place is fabulous! I love hamburgers and they have many different types of beef. I had a Buffalo Burger with whatever fixings I wanted. I loved it. This will be a Las Vegas tradition when I go back. I must always visit Burger Bar!

  • Order: Buffalo Burger, Fries and a Beer
