Well, the picture says it all! Michael Symon and B Spot take the Amstel Light People’s Choice Award for the 2nd year in a row. This time his “Yo!” Burger with salami, provolone cheese, pickled onion and ShaSha sauce took top honors. Symon also won Heinz “Best Dressed” Burger for his use of condiments.
Marc Murphy (Landmarc) won the Golden Grill award for his Big Marc Burger (all beef burger on homemade black pepper and cheddar bun with spiked ketchup and housemade pickles). This is the judges’ award and handed out for best use of the Allen Brothers meat they were supplied.
Last but not least Miami’s Burger and Beer Joint Chef Carlos Barilla won for Best Side Dish with his truffle baked potato salad.
It’s hard to describe this event someone who hasn’t attended before. If you’re a burger fanatic then this is a must attend event for you. Even if you come hungry you’ll have a difficult time eating all 25 participants’ burgers and the 3 dessert folks’ sweets. This was the 5th year the event has taken place and all the former winners were here (2007: Shake Shack, 2008: Radius, 2009: Good Stuff Eatery and 2010: B Spot). All of our local burger spots did a great job and I didn’t have a bad burger last night. Check out some pics to get your mouth watering for next year’s event. Til then…
