Daniel Boulud was the first big-name chef who dared to put a burger on his menu. Now DB Brasserie at the Venetian pays tribute to Boulud’s move with burgers such as The Frenchie. DB Brasserie opened nearly a year ago at the resort, and since, here’s a look at the numbers behind the ingredients on the burger.
In the past year, DB Brasserie has used:
- 1,635 pounds of beef
- 3,788 grilled buns
- 1,184 pounds of French fries
- 11,364 slices of pork belly
- 113,640 leaves of arugula
- and served 1,587 cold beers ordered alongside The Frenchie
On March 30, 4,996,415 viewers watched Boulud make the burger on live TV during a Good Morning America segment.
The fun doesn’t end there. All May, DB Brasserie celebrates its first year with "Le Grande" burger with an onion parmesan oregano bun, a slice of foie gras (terrine) on top of a 7-ounce beef patty topped with caramelized onion, tomato confit petals, truffle mayo, baby gem lettuce and served with French fries, of course.
