Go Big or Go Home: The $777 Burger

Posted Wednesday, August 25, 2010 by in Las Vegas, Las Vegas Casinos, Las Vegas Restaurants, Paris Las Vegas. No Comments.

Look, Vegas is a place to let loose, to go big, to kick it up a notch, to take things off their various chains. Or hooks. Or something. The $777 burger at Le Burger Brasserie inside Paris Vegas is no exception. It’s time to splurge!

The restaurant’s $777 Kobe Beef and Maine Lobster Burger is its signature dish, and it’s lovingly topped with caramelized onions, imported Brie, crispy prosciutto and 100-year-aged balsamic vinegar.

A work in progress, and already drool-worthy.

We breached security to bring you these exclusive photos of an actual $777 burger being prepared by chef John Pascob.

Chef John Pascob gingerly handles his 100-year-old balsamic vinegar like it's nitroglycerin.

Highlight of our visit? As Chef Pascob announced he would be pouring 100-year-old balsamic vinegar on his masterpiece, we showed off our culinary sophistication by blurting out, “A hundred years old? Did you run out of the fresh stuff?”

Note: Chefs absolutely love blogger hijinks.

The chef is wishing he had a very, very sharp knife right about now.

The kicker that makes this dish one of the ultimate Sin City indulgences?

The mouth-watering burger extravaganza is served with a bottle of Rose Dom Perignon champagne. Which, frankly, accounts for $700 of the $777. Yes, you can order the burger sans champagne, but what fun would that be?

What else are you going to do with those keno winnings?

Of course, Le Burger Brasserie offers innumerable other dilectible menu items that do not require your being the Sultan of Brunei to afford them. But only the $777 burger qualifies as a certified spectacle!

Lobster, balsamic vinegar and fancy skewer successfully added. A tower of succulence.

Oh, and for the sake of full disclosure, we should say we didn’t actually “pay” for our burger with actual “money,” per se. It was a demo burger, but it was just as scrumptious as the real kind.

Further full disclosure: It literally took us three years of seeing the restaurant's logo before we realized it was drawn using ketchup and mustard. D'oh!

The $777 burger is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Unless, you know, you have it again. Your kids won’t miss their piggy bank. Much.
