Vodka Pickles and Commie Burgers on the Strip

UD - KGB You have to hand it to the commies: among the bad ideas (communist rock, all that sharing), they had a few good ones, too. In particular, they could grill up quite a burger.

At least that’s how we remember it.

Welcome to KGB, Harrah’s new Soviet-style burger den, soft-opening on the Fourth of July… naturally.

It’s the best Moscow burger joint that never was, brought to life in the world’s favorite city for capitalist decadence. Everything here is black, white or red, with the emphasis firmly on the red—from the Cold War-era propaganda posters on the wall to the 10-seat chef’s table by the kitchen dubbed “Red Square.” (Menu options are strictly enforced.)

Then you can get down to the main attraction—the Iron Chef Sliders, a set of mini burgers from chef Kerry Simon’s victorious appearance on Iron Chef’s “Battle: Hamburger.” (Not to be confused with the Iron Curtain quesadillas.)

There’s also a menu of house pickles and the vodka bar tucked into the side wall for variety’s sake. Or better yet, top things off with the perfect combination of the two menus: a vodka-infused, pickled hot pepper.
