The Scoop: Last day for Burger Bar

December 19th 05:12pm, 2012

{Chocolate Burger from Burger Bar}

Burger Bar, Hubert Keller’s hamburger joint located inside Lumière Place Casino, is closing. As reported today by George Mahe of St. Louis Magazine, Burger Bar – which also has locations in Las Vegas and San Francisco – will shutter permanently after service ends this evening at 11 p.m.

“It was very popular; it’s just [that] the five-year lease was up,” explained Lumière Place spokesperson Candice Coleman about the restaurant’s closure. “It was a mutual, amicable parting,” she said, noting that all Burger Bar team members have been relocated. “No one lost their job,” she said. As for the future use of the space, Coleman stated that a few different concepts are being considered but no decision has been made yet. Keller’s other St. Louis restaurant, Sleek, also located inside the Lumière Place property, closed in January 2011.

    It seems the people here in St. Louis just don’t patronize Restaurants that serve foods that they aren’t familiar with or out of the ordinary. A Word reknown Chefs place closing just proves it.

    Yes, hamburgers are a very exotic food that people in St. Louis just aren’t familiar with. It’s a shame we aren’t more sophisticated.
