KGB: Kerry’s Gourmet Burgers to open at Harrah's

Celebrity chef Kerry Simon is opening a new gourmet burger joint on the Strip at Harrah's. This will be his second restaurant in Vegas, the first being Simon at Palms Place.

Offering more than 156 seats, KGB’s sleek modern design will feature wall coverings based on 1960’s Russian propaganda posters and thematic fixtures will create a hip yet comfortable vibe. At the full service bar, a wide array of vodkas will be offered where customers can utilize the ice bar feature for the perfectly chilled specialty drink. A vodka hostess will engage patrons throughout the evening, pairing burger selections with the ideal vodka cocktail.

The high-end burger has been a popular trend in Las Vegas for a while now. Just off the top of my head I can think of Burger Bar at Mandalay, BLT Burger at the Mirage, Le Burger Brasserie at Paris, Strip Burger at Fashion Show Mall and Burger Joint at Flamingo. It will be interesting to see how many burger places the Strip can support. They might become a little too common, but almost everyone likes a good burger, so maybe they won't be going out of style any time soon.
