$32 burger yeah right, where else but Daniel Bouloud Brasserie in Las Vegas

Tried the Daniel Boulud Brassierie in La Vegas. in the new sheek Wynn hotel, sort of like the bellagio with out the nice waterfountain show. minus those nice andre bocelli songs. onto the brasserie. went inside nice sleek space, of course pretentions like the rest of the other las vegas joints opened by chefs from new york, los angeles, et al. which is to say very fabricated and fake feeling. anyways, since i don't get off to new york that often decided that i had to try the famous or infamous original db burger, the one with all the bells and whistels, a good 90z of prime chuck or something or another along with some foie gras, braised short rib meat stuffed in the middle, and some black truffles all on a parmesan bun with some poaches tomatoes and what seemed like a tomato salsa and some very very micro-microgreens. well, the burger came forth and it must have been a have foot tall, pretty iumpressive and formidable, but sadly it laced any discrenible flavor or even good old fashioned meatiness, i could list off a buch of places that have better burgers at close to a tenth the cost including fatburger which just happens to have a location along the blvd. along with in n out. the burger at db was truly forgettable, at most this should be an eight or 9 dollar burger, and i could care less about spending 30 or even 40 bucks on a darn burger as long as its pretty good and or interesting in even a haute or nouveau way but this burger was sadly neither. the fries that were served alongside were ok, though nothing special either (and also sadly they were not served with pommess souffles that are serevd at the bistro location in new york city). anyway a true was including dessert which was a coffee coupe, very pedestrian.
