Fish might not be the first thing on your mind when you are at a burger joint, but if you are at B&B Burger at The Venetian, maybe it should be. As with all of Mario Batali’s restaurants, ingredients, technique, passion, and most importantly, flavor are all the utmost of importance. Every month they feature a new item that allows Chef Beth McGee to play with her creativity. This month features a salmon burger that is made of freshly caught Pacific salmon, which is ground and mixed with fresh lemon and basil. Chef then griddles the patty to a golden brown and places it on a soft buttery brioche bun. It is further adorned with a creamy & bright lemon-basil aioli and fresh Bibb lettuce. It is a wonderful combination of aromatics, texture and flavor. It is June, so it’s time to enjoy their patio! Beer, burgers and good times!

Las Vegas is a place where there is something for everyone. On any night guests and locals alike can enjoy high-end scotch and champagne, boutique wines & artisan spirits, all the way to yard-long slushy sugary-booze in a souvenir chalice. And as our beverage renaissance matures, our selection is expanding. Right now you can now enjoy a shining example of the world’s oldest fermented beverage, the Viking Blod! Viking Blod is a Danish mead made with hibiscus flower and finished with hops. This is a floral and complex version of the fermented honey but finishes dry with a lingering essence of hops and warmth. A truly unique and tasty beverage that is meant to be enjoyed in a port glass, it has recently been discovered by cocktail geeks who enjoy its eclectic versatility. Viking Blod is distributed by Bevi Beverage and is available at Todd English P.U.B., Total Wine and CarneVino Italian Steakhouse.
