Ketchup Premium Burger Bar has hit a few construction stumbling blocks since announcing in August it would be coming to the Miracle Mile Shops at the Planet Hollywood Resort. Originally a concept from The Dolce Group, they currently operate two sister restaurants in Dubai and Riyadh and will be expanding to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. But in Las Vegas, KVC Holdings is now listed as supervising the project. They are part of the family of companies that run long-established Blondies Sports Bar & Grill within the shopping mall and the more recent creation DB's Pong and Pool located just outside the Miracle Mile Shops on Harmon Avenue. The DB in the name is an abbreviation of "Dirty Blondie's."
Ketchup's company Website has been upgraded and offers a plausible hint of their future burger menu. A classic beef patty called the Old Timer joins a beef chill and japaleño pepper option. The New Yorker features grilled bacon and matured cheddar cheese, while the Oxford Blue is simply blue cheese and caramelized onions. In Riyadh they also serving truly sweet potato fries, with extra sprinkles of sugar and cinnamon. Alcohol-infused milkshakes are promised for the Vegas outpost.
The 2,675-square-foot space used to be occupied by Aromi d'Italia, a gelato and panini cafe. The re-modelling has publicly reported construction cost of $220,000 and is now finishing with a new contractor.
