Boston Magazine is hosting the 4th Annual Battle of the Burger, a grand competition and homage to the ever-popular burger. Thirty restaurants will compete, each offering their own unique take on the burger and you can see the list of participating restaurants and their creations here. You will get to taste items such as the Sweet & Salty Cow, the Cure, the Saltie Girl Burger, and the Ghost Burger. Participating restaurants range from Fuddruckers to Burger Dive, from Davio's to Tasty Burger.
This special event will be held at the Cruiseport Boston at 1 Black Falcon Avenue. General Admission Tickets, which allow you entrance from 7pm-10pm and to sample all thirty burger, costs $95 and you can purchase tickets online. This event usually sells out so I suggest you buy tickets now or risk not being able to go.
An important aspect of this competition is that you get to vote for your favorite burger and help determine the Burger Battle Champion. Last year's Champion was Chef Matt O’Neil of The Blue Ox in Lynn. Matt has won two prior championships and hopes to win a third time, and has already noted that this will be his last year of competition. Can he win this year with his Sin Burger?
Last year's Runner Up was Chef David Forbes of Joe’s American Bar & Grill. Can he take First Place this year with his Cure Burger? Last year's 2nd Runner Up was Chef Nicholas Dixon of Lincoln Tavern and he hopes to win it this year with his Lincoln Slider. Or will some other Chef step forward for the win? I wish good luck to all the competitors.
I will be attending this event so hope to see you there. I am curious as to which Burger I will select as my favorite. What will be your favorite?
