Grilled Prime Burger, Wolfgang Puck’s Postrio Bar & Grill

Wolfgang Puck isn’t all California-style pizzas and nouveau cuisine— his restaurants put out a great burger as well. A hefty prime beef burger is cooked to order and topped with sharp and funky Vermont cheddar cheese, which oozes over the patty as it is melted. Onion marmalade adds a sweet note to the burger, which rests on a seeded bun. A burger this simple doesn’t get any better.

Critical Mass

Like Due Forni owner Alex Taylor, formerly of Wynn Resorts, and chef Carlos Buscaglia, formerly of Fiamma, barman Mike Donaldson carved a career out on the Strip before heading for the hills of south Summerlin. He started with the Light Group and Tao Group before opening Scarpetta and D.O.C.G. in the Cosmopolitan as the sommelier and beverage director. Now at Due Forni (3555 S. Town Center Drive, Suite 105), Donaldson has managed to create a small but powerful cocktail program in a restaurant better known for its wine list and more than 40 by-the-glass offerings.
