Award-Winning New York Burger Joint Black Tap Announces Opening at The Venetian Las Vegas
The internationally recognized restaurant from Michelin starred chef Joe Isidori and noted restaurateur Chris Barish will open its first West Coast location in winter 2017
LAS VEGAS (September 20, 2017) – Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer will open its newest location this winter at The Venetian Las Vegas, bringing award-winning burgers and viral milkshakes to the Las Vegas Strip. The opening marks Black Tap’s first expansion in the U.S. beyond its four New York locations.
“Black Tap is all about three things – delicious All American burgers, out-of-this-world CrazyShakes™, and craft beer,” says Black Tap co-owner Joe Isidori. “We can’t wait to bring our take on the classic American luncheonette to the Strip.”
Since opening in New York’s SoHo neighborhood in 2015, Black Tap has received worldwide acclaim for its burgers and signature CrazyShakes™. The restaurant is helmed by Michelin-starred chef Joe Isidori and lauded restaurateur and nightclub developer Chris Barish. Isidori is a seasoned Las Vegas chef, having earned his coveted Michelin star while serving as Executive Chef of DJT. A Vegas hospitality veteran, Barish is behind some of the most successful nightclubs and restaurants in the country including Light, Martini Park, Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill and Gordon Ramsay Steak.
“Las Vegas is a second home to me, making this opening incredibly special,” says Barish. “The Venetian is the perfect home for Black Tap and we’re thrilled to be partnering with their incredible team to bring Black Tap to even more people around the world.”
Black Tap Las Vegas will be located adjacent to The Venetian Poker Room, and will feature patio dining that overlooks the resort’s scenic outdoor canals. The burger and beer joint will offer a casual vibe reminiscent of a classic American luncheonette with a distinctly New York feel. The menu will feature Black Tap’s craft burgers including the All-American Burger and the award winning Greg Norman Burger, with wagyu beef, house buttermilk-dill, blue cheese and arugula; Black Tap’s signature chicken items like the Crispy Chicken Sandwich and award-winning Spicy Korean BBQ wings toasted with sesame seed and scallion and served with buttermilk-dill dressing; and a variety of sides including hand cut fries and crispy Brussel sprouts. Black Tap’s famous CrazyShakes™ menu will include the original Cotton Candy strawberry shake with a blue and pink pearl chocolate rim, a pink lollipop, rock candy, whipped cream and cotton candy, and newcomer the Bam Bam Fruity Pebbles shake, with a fruity pebbles rim and rice krispy treat, a strawberry pop tart and a nerds rope.
“We are thrilled to be the first out-of-state home for the most Instagrammed restaurant in New York City,” said George Markantonis, president and chief operating officer of The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo. “Black Tap, with its mind-boggling burgers and inventive shakes, will certainly be a destination for Las Vegas visitors and locals alike, and will nicely complement the remarkable collection of restaurants at The Venetian and The Palazzo.”
