The Burger Week is a 7-day celebration of trendsetting chefs and unique burgers with a series of daily events.

Burger Conquest announces the 3rd annual NY Burger Week from May 1-7, 2014.

Each restaurateur and Chef will be preparing a unique event that pays tribute to the Burger in their own way.

NY_The_Burger_Week_NYC_2014_Black_Shack_Eastern_Meets_Western_Event_Layered_FinalThe Burger Week in New York kicks off May 1 at Black Shack (320 Lexington Ave) with a unique burger collaboration. Chef Jeffrey Maslanka brings off-menu burgers to the Burger Week, this time with Ramen Burger creator Keizo Shimamoto. Chef Jeff was the creative force behind the 2013 NY Burger Week off-menu Burger brunch at 67 Burger. For 2014, he and Shimamoto will work together to re-imagine each other’s Burger. Keizo has re-designed Jeff’s Western Burger – and it will be served along with Jeff’s take on the Ramen Burger. The dinner, limited to only 40 seats, will also feature a Black Shack off-menu Asian-themed side and a beer milk shake.
