There’s a factor there are a lot of hamburger joints on the Las Vegas Strip: The world can’t get enough of this timeless experience. We’re talking juicy hamburgers carefully crafted with imaginative toppings, a side of something crispy-fried and a thick and creamy milkshake– perhaps spiked with a little additional fun.
There’s a brand-new experience coming to the Venetian, taking control of the indoor-outdoor space next to the poker space and offering canal-adjacent patio seating (formerly the home of B&B Burger). Black Tap Craft Burgers & & Beer, which originated in New york city City’s SoHo neighborhood, is expanding beyond the Big Apple for the very first time, and there could not be a better place for it than Vegas. The “classic luncheonette” offers burgers, french fries, wings, craft beers, mason jar mixed drinks, salads, sides and its infamous Crazy Shakes, all which have actually been satisfying New York travelers and locals for several years. Sound familiar?
Wait up until you get a taste. We’re specifically looking forward to the Greg Norman hamburger, a Wagyu beef patty with buttermilk-dill dressing, blue cheese and arugula. The Steak Au Poivre hamburger with green peppercorn sauce ought to fit right in on the Strip, and Black Tap’s crispy chicken sandwich– filled with Korean barbecue sauce, buttermilk coleslaw, fresh lime and spicy mayo– seems like its all set to challenge for a best-sandwich title. The wings are done Korean-style, too, best with a side of onion rings.
Black Tap is expected to open its doors at the Venetian in early winter season. Let the hamburger fight continue!
