Everyone’s always looking for the best burger in the Big Apple, so Amstel Light and Time Out New York set out on a quest to find and crown that restaurant. Last night, hundreds of burger loving New Yorker's (including yours truly) came out to the Hudson Hotel and tasted 15 of Gotham’s standout burgers, voted for the night’s top-patty and, of course, had some Amstel Light to wash all that meaty goodness down.
Maialino's Late Night Burger (Pat Lafrieda Beef with House Made Pancetta, Gorgonzola, Rosemary Brioche Bun)
Because I got to the event disastrously late, this burger was DUNZO! Given my luck, of course the winning burger would be gone before I could have a taste! Seeing how Maialino was the first table to be out of burgers, I had a feeling this would be the tops for the night. But on the bright side, guess this means a trip to the actual restaurant is in store!
Runner ups (in order):
Jeepney's Chori Burger (Angus Beef and Sweet Cured Pork Longanisa With Banana Ketchup, Pickled Carrots, Cucumber, and Jicama)
Wow, I'm two for two because although I saw this burger being served, I was deterred by the long lines and the slightly creamy / unidentifiable mayonnaise-like sauce on the burger. I said I'd try it if I had stomach capacity after I finished my rounds, but when I finally made my way back, this burger was DUNZO as well...
