Burger Bash

A highlight of this year’s Food Network NYC Wine & Food Festival (October 7-10), was the Blue Moon Burger Bash. The event featured a slew of restaurants sizzling their signature patties for over 2300 attendees. After many meaty bites, burger-loving fans still found room to chug Blue Moon beer and devour towers of cupcakes, mini-parfaits and other desserts at the Sweet Street Desserts booth. The judges chose Shake Shake’s burger as the winner; the people’s choice award went to Bobby’s Burger Palace. Check out the menu.
