Congratulations to the Winners of Burger Slam 2013!

There was some stiff competition at Burger Slam 2013! Last year’s winner, Tim Partridge of the MFA,  squared off against competing chefs from Gaslight Brasserie, The Haven, and Sycamore.  All four burgers were devine; including Sycamore’s bacon caramelized onion burger with black garlic and bleu fonduta. But, there were only two awards – so here’s who won…

A Big Congratulations to The Haven in JP for winning the Judge’s Award for Best Burger!  Their burger was made with huntsman cheese, a bacon onion marmalade and a pickle sauce.

Attendees gave Gaslight Brasserie, the People’s Choice Award for their Brandt All Natural Beef burger with pickled ramp aioli, mortadella bacon and cilantro.
