Last Night’s National Burger Month Closing Party

NHM 2013 Closing Party Poster

It was fitting that the grouping of Blue Collar, Josh’s Deli, Pincho Factory and Swine be dubbed the Burger Avengers by Tasting Table. And I was ok with being the Nick Fury of the group who helped to get these Chefs with diverse styles together. Every time I asked what dish any of them were preparing I didn’t get a peep until Josh Marcus from Josh’s Deli leaked that he and Danny Serfer from Blue Collar were going to create one giant dish called The Voltron Burger. The attendees seemed to enjoy not only the food but the camaraderie amongst the Chefs. Thanks to all of the restaurants for helping to close out National Hamburger Month 2013 in style!
