Ken Oringer’s 2011 Burger Battle Challenge

The burger has taken on many forms – from the massive meat mound to the simple slider – and has seemingly been topped by everything imaginable. What else can be done?  Prepare to be surprised and delighted as the city’s top chef’s try their hand at the all American burger hoping to be crowned Burger Battle Champion.

The second annual event, brought to you by famed chef Ken Oringer, takes place Monday, February 28 at his steakhouse restaurant KO Prime. Thirteen chefs from some of the top restaurants across Boston will do their best to steal the crown from last year’s reigning champion Brook Vosika of The Bristol Lounge at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston. Proceeds from the event benefit Autism Speaks.
