BURGER CONQUEST and REV CIANCIO TO HOST ANNUAL NY BURGER WEEK
MAY 1-7, 2017
The Burger Week is a 7-day celebration of trendsetting chefs and unique Burgers with a series of daily events.
Burger Conquest announces the annual NY Burger Week from May 1-7, 2017. Over the course of 7 days, you will experience 7 unique and fun Hamburger themed events.
From off-menu eats to drink pairings to eat-ucational entertainment – and the return of the Burger Crawl, 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.
Here’s a preview of a few of the events.
Join us on May 2nd at two8two Bar & Burger in Brooklyn for an off-menu Burger feast for those that like a little heat in their meat! World renowned Hamburger expert George Motz will be hosting a Mexican hatch chile tasting. Brooklyn locals know that two8two owner Billy Thanopoulos is obsessed with hatch green chiles and whenever he can get them, a hatch green chile Burger pops up on the menu.
We’ve been able to secure not only green hatch chiles but also red ones! At this event you’ll get to taste the two8two hatch green chile Burger, off-menu hatch chile loaded fries and the infamous Tortilla Burger match with red hatch chile sauce as featured in George’s cook book, The Great American Burger Book! George will be on hand to give an brief education on Mexican hatch chiles and sign copies of his book.
The signature event of NY Burger Week, the Boozy Burger Brunch, returns this time as the finale to NY Burger Week on May 7th at Gebhard’s Beer Culture on the Upper West Side. For those that have attended in the past, they know, this event can get a little wild!
For this year’s Boozy Burger Brunch, you’ll get 3 Different off-menu mini Burgers made with Certified Angus Beef® paired with 3 specialty Craft Beers from Butternuts Beer. While your tasting all those great Burgers & beer, you’ll get a beer tasting presentation by a representative of Butternuts beer as well as a brief Certified Angus Beef® & Ground Beef Education from an Expert Burger Taster.
