Update: A Resorts World Las Vegas spokesperson shares Burger & Lobster “will not be part of Resorts World’s F&B portfolio.”
As construction pushes for a promised summer debut, Resorts World Las Vegas is keeping details of its extensive dining options firmly under wraps, including a multi-million dollar cigar lounge, its $4 million Umi Uma Japanese restaurant, and a San Diego-born taco restaurant planned to operate out of a shipping container at the $4.3 billion mega-resort.
Recently filed paperwork also revealed the U.K.’s Burger & Lobster chain is making a huge investment for its third American expansion, building on a global footprint that includes restaurants in New York, Singapore, Bangkok, Kuwait City, Dubai, and one of Resorts World’s own sibling destinations, inside the SkyAvenue dining and retail venue at Genting Highlands, Malaysia.
For its Las Vegas branch, Burger & Lobster has already allocated an estimated construction budget of $4,023,152 for the remodel. Each of its 16 global ventures feature unique interior designs while maintaining a price point and laid-back style aimed at casual diners.
Created in London back in 2001, the original very basic menu offered three staples, now adapted into a 10-ounce burger, lobster rolls served on brioche with Japanese mayo, and a 1.25-pound whole lobster, plus expanded options including lobster Benedict or truffle omelets for brunch, the B&L, surf-and-turf combo, and the dramatic Big Boy Lobsters, over-sized crustaceans priced per pound.
