New Summer Delish Items Added To Anthony's Gourmet Burgers & Brews

Lemon Meringue 

Soft Crab Sandwich

Just in time for summer, the Four Star grownup burger bar, Anthony’s Gourmet Burgers & Brews at M Resort Spa Casino, has introduced two new masterpiece burgers, a killer crab sandwich, six seasonal craft beers, and a variety of appetizers, salads, desserts, cocktails and breakfast items.

Front and center on the menu are the brand new Porter Burger ($13), an Angus patty topped with porter-poached hot pastrami, aged Swiss, coleslaw and a zesty mustard sauce on a toasted pretzel bun, and T.G.B. Burger ($11), a hand-packed turkey burger glazed with Crabbies Ginger Beer, crushed avocado, sprouts, oven-dried tomato and green goddess aioli on a soft potato bun. Also new to the menu is the soft shell crab sandwich ($11), a seasonal sandwich featuring two crispy soft shell crabs on a toasted hoagie roll with spicy remoulade, sliced tomatoes, and shredded lettuce.

“What makes our burgers so special is the savory combination of the Angus beef paired with beer-infused toppings like porter-poached hot pastrami, stout-braised short rib, Sam Adams Lager-braised wild mushrooms and IPA-battered jalapeños,” said Executive Chef Mark Sandoval. “We take it up a notch by incorporating various brews into many of our homemade sauces, like the zesty pilsner sauce on our Pilsner Burger, the Blue Moon orange mayo on our Hefeweizen Burger, and the amber ale mornay sauce on our Red Ale Burger.”

Six new 12-ounce seasonal brews, just $5 each, are the perfect complement to any of the delicious burger entrees. Brews include the refreshingly light Anchor Summer Beer, Brooklyn Brewing’s popular Brooklyn Summer Ale, the crisp pilsner-style Sierra Nevada Summerfest, Magic Hat’s elderberry-infused Elder Betty, the locally brewed and gluten-free Joseph James Foxtail Ale and the sparkling Crispin Pacific Pear Cider. For the cocktail connoisseur, new libations ($7 each) include the Jalapeño Margarita made with fresh jalapeño, fresh-squeezed and lightly sweetened lemon and lime juices and St-Germain elderflower liqueur, the Cruzan Rum Lemonade with Cruzan white rum, fresh lime juice and lemon-lime soda, and the Coco Loso featuring Ciroc coconut vodka and fresh pineapple juice.

In the appetizers section, guests will find new items such as the caraway and sea salt-crusted jumbo house-made pretzel ($7), mini corn dog bites ($8) served with honey mustard and sugarcane ketchup, chicken taquitos ($8) and a hot cup of creamy New England clam chowder ($7). Garden fresh salads include the taco salad ($11), featuring a crispy tortilla filled with shredded lettuce, seasoned beef, cheddar cheese, sour cream, guacamole and pico de gallo, and the small garden salad ($4) tossed with carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers and a choice of dressing.

The petite lemon meringue pie ($7) with a sweet sablé crust, lemon curd, Italian meringue and raspberry gelee will go head-to-head with the mixed berry cobbler ($7), topped with baked streusel and vanilla bean gelato, and the mouthwatering carrot cake ($6) touting layers of cream cheese filling and a fresh pineapple compote.

Anthony’s Gourmet Burgers & Brews also serves breakfast daily from 7 to 11 a.m. New items to look for include the Scottish smoked salmon plate with vine ripened tomatoes, capers, shaved onion, slice cucumber, a hard-boiled egg, cream cheese and a choice of bagel ($13), huevos rancheros featuring two eggs served over medium atop a crispy corn tortilla with refried beans, queso fresco and ranchero sauce ($10), breakfast burrito stuffed with scrambled eggs, chorizo and cheddar cheese served alongside hot breakfast potatoes ($10) and the breakfast bagel served with two eggs and a choice of bacon, ham or sausage ($12).

The new menu items are now available at Anthony’s Gourmet Burgers and Brews. Breakfast is served daily from 7 to 11 a.m., lunch Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and dinner daily from 4 to 10 p.m. For more information and to make a reservation, visit the website or call 702-797-1000.

Help Fight Pediatric Cancer In Honor Of Ryan Tonight At McMullan's Irish Pub

Retired veteran hockey player Jeff Christian, who played for 1997-98 Las Vegas Thunder, lost his daughter Ryan in 2013 after a three-year battle fighting a rare pediatric cancer.  He returns to Las Vegas to host a charity event to raise money for the Team Ryan Foundation, which was created in her honor, and the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, which addresses the specialized health care needs of children in Nevada and the surrounding regions for children with or without medical insurance or the ability to pay for treatment.

Local band Avalon Landing will perform an exclusive acoustic set and there will be an opportunity to win great prizes and experiences via raffle drawings.  There is no cost for entry and donations will be raised through the purchase of $4 cans of Guinness and Carlsberg Beer, special food and craft items, raffle tickets and direct donations to the charities.

July 25, 7 pm
McMullan’s Irish Pub – Shenanigan’s
4650 W Tropicana Ave #110, Las Vegas, NV 89103

About the Team Ryan Foundation:
In 2010 Ryan Christian was diagnosed with a pediatric cancer so rare it affects just one in three million children, and after three years of a long, hard fight, she lost her battle on January 24, 2013. 

Ryan was a little girl who touched many and her journey was chronicled on The Today Show as she and her parents Jeff and Dorie helped her fight this disease with the support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and a legion of fans. Ryan’s life revolved around giving and helping others, although she herself was enduring so much.  Her parents chose to honor her spirit with the creation of the Team Ryan Charitable Foundation, which was founded to fund pediatric cancer research and care for children like Ryan and families like Ryan’s.
