Bristol Burger Contest

In At Home, Restaurant on May 23, 2012 at 1:46 pm

A couple of weeks ago we were invited into the Bristol Lounge at the Four Season’s Hotel to celebrate burger month, an event they chose to mark by creating different daily burgers inspired by various cities. We sat at a beautiful table overlooking the park and we sipped cocktails while we dined on a Parisian take on their famous burger and truffle fries (complete with Goat Cheese, Truffles and topped off with a fried egg). While dining, we were informed of two contests that they were running throughout the month. The first, a complimentary steak dinner for two and a night’s stay in one of the hotel’s luxury suites for the person who can eat all 31 of the burgers. (Richard was up for the challenge, Katie was a little more hesitant..) The second contest, and something that was a little more our speed; create and tweet your own burger inspired by a city not already on their list. The winner would get his/her burger featured on their menu along with an invitation to come in and try it. We immediately got to work clogging their twitter feed with ideas and they selected one of them: The Jamaican Burger: Jerk Chicken Burger with Mango Salsa and Plantain Chips! The burger will be featured on May 29th. The only problem? We’re not around that day to try it, but we’d like to send two lucky readers in our place to check it out! Are ya in??

If you’d like to see yourself at the Four Seasons, eating one of their famous burgers, you can enter simply by leaving us a comment on what fun city inspired burger you’d create and we’ll randomly select one lucky winner (and their guest) to go to the Bristol Lounge on the 29th and enjoy the Jamaican Burger! If you’d like to increase your odds of winning, Tweet “I want the @TheSkinnyBeet #Burger @FSBoston!”. We’ll be randomly picking a reader this Friday, so act quickly!

Good Luck!

  1. New York deli burger, topped with thin cut pastrami and melted swiss, on a bulkie roll

  2. Seoul, Korea – fresh ground Kalbi beef (short rib) dusted with salt and Togarashi cooked med-rare topped with some Napa cabbage kimchi and a dab of Gochujang on a Korean style Martin’s potato roll and served with Gamja Jorim potatoes

  3. Vegas-I’d make an organic burger out of the best humanely raised beef topped with perfectly caramelized onions, blue cheese and A-1, lettuce and tomato. That’s not very exciting, you’re probably thinking. Well I’m a vegetarian (24 years and counting). For once, I’d give it a go, because what happens in Vegas…

  4. What I do If I make my own burger. I the stuff it with jalapeños then marinate it in teriyaki sauce for a couple hours. I grill it to medium rare. I then throw some prosciutto, pancetta and mozzarella cheese on it about 30 seconds before I take it off the grill. If it’s a double then I use two hamburger bun tops. It keeps the double from falling apart at the bottom. This would be my North End style burger.

  5. Dublin. I’d take a little Guiness mayo, some good Irish cheddar, bacon and a little green watercress or spinach.

  6. Buenos Aires, Argentina – the land of great beef and Asado makes it easy for a fresh ground skirt steak patty agressively s & p’d and topped with a Chimichurri Aioli, Fried Onion Strings, Queso Fresco on pan de hamburguesas. Muy delicioso!

  7. We would create a Spanish-inspired burger by taking ground beef and mixing in spicy chorizo for the patty. On top we would melt Manchego cheese and slather on a homemade romesco sauce, and a large slice of tomato and a classic bun. Patatas bravas on the side!

  8. The New Bedford Burger: Flame cooked chourico-crusted pork patty topped with garlicky clams and reduction, stuffed into a Portuguese sweet roll.

  9. A Buffalo burger incorporating my two favorite Buffalo foods. Beef patty mixed with Frank’s Red Hot sauce, topped with blue cheese, served on a kummelweck roll.

  10. Oops! Comments in the wrong spot! Id make a Miami inspired burger packed with heat!

  11. I’d love to try the Skinny Beet burger! I’d create a Brussels Burger topped with twice-fried frites, an ailoli sauce, and served with a short stack of waffle sticks.

  12. I would like to create a brunch burger (naturally!). A turkey sausage patty topped with a poached egg and hollandaise between two pieces of brioche french toast.
