The winner of the 4th annual Burger Bloodbath not only received the glory of a Burger Bloodbath victory but also a spot at the New York Wine & Food Festival Burger Bash. The six competitors:
- Patrick Connoley & Carlos Suarez
- Cobi Levy & Andrew Pressler
- Jeff Schwartz of Crow’s Nest
- 2008 Champion Mo Koyfman
- Joe “Bay Burger” Tremblay
- Larry Kramer & Don Hartwick
The judges were Pat LaFrieda (the supplier of the meat), Kate Krader (editor at Food & Wine), Josh Capon (head chef at Lure Fishbar in Soho) and Lee Schrager (director of the South Beach & NYC Wine and Food Festivals). Mo Koyfman won with a burger topped with tomatoes, pickle, lettuce, American cheese, ketchup, and Dijon mustard. Congratulations to organizer Ben Leventhal on what I heard was a successful event.
