NY BURGER WEEK MAY 1-7, 2013
– 7 Days of delicious Burger events
From gourmet blends to off-menu specialities, to beer pairings, NY Burger Week will pay tribute to the world’s greatest sandwich, the Hamburger. Each restaurateur and Chef will be preparing a unique event that pays tribute to the Burger in their own way.
When 5 friends went out for a burger at Arthur’s Steakhouse in Hoboken, NJ on Friday, October 16, 2008, none of them, especially me, envisioned a blog that would last this long, let alone launching and running consecutive Burger Weeks in NY was in the cards. But NYC, you love yourself some Burgers and that’s why it’s my duty to bring you the best of the best of them. I’m honored to have this role and I thank each and every one of you who participated in the most Burgerific celebration in a city that truly, truly appreciates a good time and a tasty Burger.
