FLEUR BY HUBERT KELLER
Hamburgers are an essential part of bar menus, casual dining eateries, and behind the success of every fast-food chain from White Castle to Roy Rogers. May is National Barbeque Month so it’s fitting that most commonly fire-grilled food, the hamburger, and shares its celebratory month with the technique often used to cook it. When it comes to burgers the variations are endless. You can add a fried egg, chili, avocado, any type of cheese you can think of, or even ten strips of bacon. Want all of those toppings? Not a problem. We’ve even seen burgers with a bun made from Krispy Kreme glazed donuts.
Gamblers head to Vegas to try their luck at the Roulette tables, while Foodies head to Vegas to discover a whole new way to discover the Strip. When in Vegas, stop by these eateries and have the best bites of your life!
