Moulin, Newport Beach has added to its popular Tuesday night Chef’s Dinner - Le Burger. On the first Tuesday of every month, the menu will highlight a new variation of Moulin’s hand-formed prime beef hamburger.
Proprietor Laurent Vrignaud proves to be keeping pace with Paris as the iconic American dish reached peak popularity in France last month. According to Forbes, a study published in March by Paris-based restaurant consulting firm, Gira Conseil, confirms that sales of the famed French jambon-beurre baguette were surpassed by sales of the classic American-style hamburger for the first time in history; with 70% of burger sales coming from upscale full-service restaurants.
At the beginning of each month, a new variation of Le Burger is offered on Moulin’s Tuesday night Chef’s Dinner. The preparation of the burger changes each month, allowing the restaurant to showcase its variety of house-baked artisan breads and assortment of French cheeses while highlighting seasonal ingredients like heirloom tomatoes in July and French truffles in November. Each month, Le Burger is served with a side of roasted potatoes and a mixed greens salad; a glass of French wine or beer; and one of Moulin’s signature desserts from the patisserie all for $29. Reservations can be made by calling 949.474.0920.
