2014 Battle of the Burger Recap | Local Bozo
According to Local Bozo, In New York City, the notion of the “best burger” is often like getting recommendations to use a friend’s doctor: everybody’s guy is ‘the best.’ Fortunately, Time Out New York left the decision up to the masses on Thursday night as a completely sold out 2014 “Battle of the Burger” event packed the South Street Seaport for a competitive two hour tasting extravaganza. Sixteen of the City’s most reputable grillmasters and their teams created signature dishes specifically for this event and with sponsor Amstel Light providing an unlimited supply of suds, the entire evening was a celebration in mouthwatering gluttony.
A massive stage was erected at the outdoor intersection of Fulton and Water Street where the partitioned event would take place, welcoming hundreds upon hundreds of hungry meat eaters to the otherwise touristy area. Top 40 and hip hop music filled the air courtesy of the ‘Battle’s’ house DJ as guests raced around the astro-turf laden space in their attempts to taste every burger offering. Luckily we arrived just in time for the VIP hour which gave us sufficient time to parade around from station to station before the jam packed crowd would arrive.
