The Impossible Burger will debut this week in Las Vegas at Andrea’s, the award-winning fine dining restaurant at Wynn Las Vegas.
Beginning tomorrow, Impossible Foods’ plant-based burger will be available exclusively on Andrea’s menu and featured in three unique dishes created by Executive Chef Joseph Elevado. Andrea’s is the first restaurant to serve the Impossible Burger outside of New York and California. The Impossible Burger will also debut soon at the resort’s Country Club – A New American Steakhouse.
The Impossible Burger is the world’s only burger that looks, handles, smells, cooks and tastes like ground beef from cows, but is made entirely from plants, with a much smaller environmental footprint than meat from animals.
“People always ask us when the Impossible Burger will come to their hometowns,” said Pat Brown, CEO and founder of Impossible Foods. “We want the Impossible Burger to be everywhere–and until then, we’re excited to bring it to the culinary program at Wynn. Las Vegas gets 40 million tourists per year, so people from around the world can try it.”
Experience the Impossible Three Ways
Winner of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Award, Andrea’s has become America’s premier example of “vibe dining” – a contemporary hot spot equally prized for its food, service, cocktails and eclectic atmosphere that embraces a more fluid and less formatted style of dining than the traditional three-course model. Helmed by Chef Elevado, Andrea’s features shared plates of Asian-inspired specialties, ocean-fresh sushi, rotating seasonal sides and other delicacies.
“Andrea’s is the first restaurant to introduce the Impossible Burger to Las Vegas, and I’m excited to share my take on it,” Executive Chef Joseph Elevado said. “The three dishes we’ve created showcase both the product and the restaurant’s elevated approach toward innovation.”
Available nightly, Chef Elevado’s menu will feature three specialty dishes including Thai Crispy Rice Cups, made with Impossible Burger, mint, cilantro, chili, onion, ginger and peanuts; Impossible Burgers, three sizzling sliders served with frisée, kimchee, pickles, kalbi and kochujang aioli; and Ma Po Tofu, a unique take on meatballs made with Impossible Burger, chili paste, shiitake mushrooms and green onion.
