BLT Burger - Bistro Laurent Tourondel - Mirage Las VegasBLT Burger - which is not the acronym you are familiar with, but instead stands for Bistro Laurent Tourondel - opens today at Mirage, where the white tigers used to be.

The obvious question, why is a French chef slinging burgers, shakes, fries and other 50's diner fare? The quasi-skeptical answer : if you tack a French name onto it people will think its fancy and probably pay more than the Fatburger in the food court. The foodie answer : Laurent Tourondel has taken American comfort foods and treated them with new combinations and flavor blends which retain their identity while raising diner food to new culinary heights.

BLT Burger has nine milkshake offerings, from the basic vanilla/chocolate syrup to the more exotic : the Twinkie Boy (Vanilla Ice Cream, Twinkies, Caramel Syrup), Stay Puft (Vanilla Ice Cream and Toasted Marshmallows) or the Lunch Box (Vanilla Ice Cream, Peanut Butter, Grape Jelly). They've even offer quintet of 'spiked' milkshakes including : Grandma's Treat (Vanilla Ice Cream, Caramel syrup & Makers Mark), Malibu Barbie (Malibu Rum, Pineapple Juice, Coconut Milk & Vanilla Ice Cream).

Burger offerings include American Wagyu Beef Burgers ($17), BLTs ($11), "The Stripper" (no buns - $10), a Tex-Mex burger (jalapenos, chili, avocado, salsa, jack cheese, onion sour cream - $12), Lamb Tandoori burger, Turkey burger (yay!), Buffalo Chicken, veggie, Salmon and a veal & pork meatball 'burger'.

BLT Burger also has nice array of beers on tap which you can order by the pint ($5-9) or pitcher ($19-34).

Here's the full BLT Burger menu.
