Chef, restaurateur, and TV personality Bobby Flay is slated to open two more Vegas Strip outposts for his new fast-casual restaurant Bobby’s Burgers. In December, the burger joint will open at Harrah’s Las Vegas, and shortly after, in March 2022, it’s headed to the increasingly star-studded Paris Las Vegas.
The idea for the venture — more casual than the slightly more gussied up Bobby’s Burger Palace, whose Las Vegas location at the Shops at Crystals has shuttered — derives from Flay’s childhood love for a classic American fast food trifecta: burger, fries, and shakes.
Bobby’s Burgers is dishing out seven beefy burgers, including one stacked with crunchy potato chips, another with bacon and blue cheese, and yet another, aptly named the “brunch burger,” with bacon and egg. Also on offer is a chicken sandwich with an aji amarillo pepper mayo and slaw; a veggie burger made of mushrooms, chickpeas, and quinoa; fries; and milkshakes in five flavors — vanilla bean, dark chocolate, strawberry, cookies and cream, and pistachio.
The restaurant already counts locations in New York City’s Yankee Stadium, and another in Caesars Palace, which opened in the spring. That’s across the street from Harrah’s hotel and casino, where Eater previously reported a third Bobby’s Burgers would go as per a permit filing for a $$413,393 development at the location. Now, Flay and Caesar Entertainment are confirming that venture, along with the one headed to the Paris Las Vegas, on Le Boulevard, near to where Nobu Matsuhisa’s incoming third Las Vegas restaurant will go, in early 2022.
Paris is currently drawing several clout-carrying big names under its roof: Other than Nobu and Bobby’s Burgers, the resort is expected to welcome domesticity guru Martha Stewart’s first Las Vegas restaurant is 2022, and Vanderpump à Paris from Lisa Vanderpump of Vanderpump Rules and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this winter. These are in addition to celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s steakhouse, Gordon Ramsay Steak, and a pastry shop from Michelin-starred French chef Guy Savoy, called Brioche by Guy Savoy.
