You could put the words “mac ’n’ cheese” and “bacon” in front of “cardboard box,” and Americans would still be clamoring to eat it. But we’ll be damned if Guy Fieri’s New York Burger Bash-winner isn’t one of the most well-crafted burgers we’ve encountered—one that doesn’t taste like overkill, either. In addition to the pasta and the bacon, there’s a whole slew of other ingredients in play, including crispy onion straws and the chef’s much-maligned-but-unsurprisingly-tasty Donkey Sauce. Put it all together, and you’ve got a burger that is pretty much Fieri on a toasted brioche bun: larger than life and crazy-full of flavor. $20, in the Quad, 702-731-3311, TheQuadLV.com.
