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.
The Alewife is one of the best bars in New York City. You don’t have to take my word for it though as it was rated as the best bar in NYC on ratebeer.com. The rotating selection of 28 craft taps on draft always represents the best in world class Beers available here. Whet your whistle with an amazing selection of the freshest local Brews and the best of the best Beers made outside the region along with a unique list of bottles from around the globe. This massive Beer hall, located just 1 stop on the Subway from Grand Central Station, also offers some of the tastiest, most delicious and unique upscale pub Food available in all 5 boros. Thanks to outstanding skills of Chef’s Travis Yuen & Gregorio Pedroza, there’s always something good to eat on the menu, all of which is made even more delicious by Beer pairings crafted by owners Patrick and Roz Donagher. Whether it’s Taco Tuesday, a week of featured breweries or a food & beer tasting event with Get Real Presents, there is always something awesome happening at the Alewife … like the NY Burger Week finale!

Seriously, this event defined home run. From service to Beers to Food to presentation, the Alewife and their Chefs put on a top notch dining experience. Every dish was fantastic, all the Beers were great and the pairings were spot on. As each Burger hit the table, Chefs Travis & Gregorio stepped out from the kitchen to explain a little about the reason for making the Burger, it’s origin and the pairing. This was definitely a heightened experience of what regularly happens at the Alewife. Each dish was diverse, unique and most certainly very, very delicious. The crowd fave was The “Quack Attack,” a Duck Burger topped with Duck and more Duck. The flavor profile was amazing. No two Burgers were even remotely alike. These two Chefs could not have presented a more diverse representation of 1 Sandwich.
If you were one of the lucky few who attended this event, Thank you. I know you thought the Food was as amazing as I did. To the Chefs at the Alewife, wow! I think you are two of the best Chefs out there and you certainly proved it to everyone who ate these Burgers. To Patrick, Roz and the rest of the Alewife, thank you for letting me bring NY Burger Week to you and for hosting the most unique event of the entire series.
