THE CONQUEST
I’m humbled. I can’t believe that what started as a silly blogspot site between a couple friends has now turned into a 3rd Annual celebration of Burgers in NYC. New Yorkers like their Burgers. No, that doesn’t do it justice. New Yorkers are seriously passionate about Burgers. This city is home to some of the hardest working, most innovative and passionate restauranteurs, Chefs and Burger fanatics. It was never my intention to become an events planner or promoter but what can I say? It’s a honor to help unite them for one week so that we can all enjoy it together.  NY Burger Week is my love letter to the Big Apple and all the delicious Burgers inside of it.

I once asked The Burger Beast “If you could have a Burger with anyone alive, or dead, fictional or real, who would it be and where would you take them?” His answer: “I’d take Elvis to have a Guberburger at Wheel Inn.” We’re recreating that Burger as part of the 10th anniversary screening of “Hamburger America” with George Motz for NY Burger Week. I’d invite Sef to attend, eat the Burger and do my best Shake, Rattle and Roll for him but he’s going to be busy in his home of Miami, FL. On Friday May 9th, The Burger Beast, after 5 and half years of writing his blog has put together what he believes to be the “Best Burger Competition line-up in South Florida ever.” This massive Burger event is called the Burger Beast Burger Brawl or 4B for short.

From The Burger Beast:

On Friday May 9th from 7 to 10PM at Magic City Casino, come out and celebrate National Hamburger Month with us at the inaugural Burger Beast Burger Brawl sponsored by Miami Lakes Auto Mall and presented by Burger Maker.

Your vote counts! That’s right, every attendee will cast one vote for their favorite Burger Joint. Whoever receives the most will be named Burger Brawl Champion and receive a soon to be coveted one of kind trophy that can be displayed at their restaurant.

Your ticket gets you Burger samples from all these great South Florida Burger spots:

Price: $45
Ticket link: http://theburgerweek.com/tickets/

Includes:

  • Pre-party
  • Screening of Hamburger America, hosted by George Motz
  • Taste 3 Burgers featured in the film
  • Q&A with with George
  • After party

10 years ago, George Motz released the film Hamburger America, which spotlights 8 different American Burger joints with a focus on the story behind their burgers. That film went on to become the Hamburger America book, that in it‘s 2nd printing offers a “state by state guide to 150 great burger joints.” No American Burger fan should be without the book, seriously.

The film had it’s debut screening 10 years ago at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. Then it shown again 2 years later at the Water Taxi Beach in Long Island City while Burgers featured in the film were fed to audience members during the viewing. That unique magic moment of tasting what was on the screen birthed The Food Film Festival in NYC which now also happens in Chicago and Charleston, SC. The book also eventually lead to George’s position as the producer and host of Travel Channel’s Burger Land.

On May 7, 2014 at Tribeca Cinemas (54 Varick St), with the help of The Food Film Festival, we will recreate that evening with a screening of the film while serving the exact same menu. The event will be hosted by George including a post film Q&A. The event will also feature the Manhattan debut of Andrew Zurica’s new Burger truck, “Hard Times Sundaes.” Andrew owned and operated the Luncheonette in Mill Basin, Brooklyn where he created a highly acclaimed Burger. Unfortunately the restaurant closed due to insurmountable damages from Hurricane Sandy. Andrew returns with a brand new Burger truck where soon you’ll be able to get his delicious Burgers again. Joining him as co-captain in the kitchen is Burger Week veteran Chef Jeffrey Maslanka from 67 Burger & The Black Shack.

Together the 2 of them will work hand in hand to recreate the Butter Burger from Solly’s Grille, the Green Chile Cheeseburger from the Bobcat Bite and Guberburger from the Wheel Inn. George as well as the Chefs and members of the Food Film Fest will be on hand to hang out and chat Burgers during the after party.

This is one Burger event you do not want to miss!!

BURGER MENU:

  • The Butter Burger from Solly’s Grille in Milwaukee, WI
  • The Green Chile Cheeseburger from The Bobcat Bite in Santa Fe, NM
  • The Guberburger from The Wheel Inn in Sedalia, MO

Then you’ll move into The Den, Harding’s private whisky room, where you’ll experience an intimate tasting lesson with Elijah Craigh bourbon. You’ll be served a paired dish of Chef Ariel Fox’s crispy Yukon potato skins with shaved blue cheese.
 
From there you’ll take a walk into Harding’s kitchen where Chef Ariel Fox will explain how they make their burger with a custom blend of 80/20 lean to fat ratio mix of chuck and skirt beef that is then mixed with a 30% ratio of short rib.
 
The small group of you will then be seated at a community table on Harding’s VIP balcony dining table where you’ll devour said succulent Burger along with some skin-on rosemary frech fries with a paired bourbon cocktail.

Due to the intensity of this event, there is a very limited amount of tickets. Sleep on this one and you’ll be sorry.
**Must be seated 15 minutes before event**
