Angel: So, here we are, just over a month later and we’re finally getting to the last day of our ‘burger-madness’ weekend.
Angel: How would one start a four day, 7-8 burger extravaganza? With the a grand opening of a new burger place, of course. To date, Plan B is our highest rated burger and, on Aug 30th, they had a grand opening party for their new location in Milford, CT featuring free hors d’oeuvres and draft [...]
Angel: By the time we arrived at the NY State Fair, we had eaten burgers from 7 of the 10 places nominated. Bistro Tallulah (full story to here) was our personal favorite, but sadly they couldn’t attend the competition. The Westchester Burger Company (read the full story here) was our next favorite to win.
Angel: I’ve been to local 4-H Fairs, flea markets and carnivals, but nothing really preps you for the shear magnitude of a state fair. Sean tried to tell me it was about the size of a Six Flags amusement park, but with farm animals. That isn’t too far off the mark, but I do have [...]
Angel: I feel we should start off by saying… We enjoy gourmet food at elegant places with culinary artists who finely balance the food to excite our palettes, but there is a large place in our hearts for down-to-earth, simple, comfort foods. Burgers with a beer is one of the great ‘for the soul’ meals. [...]
The burger-off at the NY State Fair is now over and the South Trenton Pub has been named as having the best burger in NY. We had the pleasure of visiting their establishment yesterday where we enjoyed a burger and had the honor of chatting with Ralph (the owner and chef). His enthusiasm and excitement [...]
Angel: 6 months ago, we learned that the New York Beef Industry Council (NYBIC) is sponsoring a burger off to be held at the NY State Fair. After accepting nominations from February 1st through March 15th, one restaurant (and their flagship burger) from each of the 10 NY regions was chosen to compete. The state [...]
Angel: I got a message from my oldest friend (who now lives in Cali) and she said that she’s visiting Long Island. It just so happens that one of the competitors in the NY State burger off is on Long Island. So while it’s and hour further out on the island, we needed to try [...]
Sean: I was on my way out to a barbeque when Angel called. Her mother was in town and said “I want a burger,” so, naturally, calling me was the next step. Angel: The NY Beef Industry Council had a contest where they divided the state into 10 regions and had the public vote for [...]
