Bobby's Burger

This year's New York City Wine and Food Festival's burger battle was a massive face-off featuring over 20 chefs in an old warehouse in Brooklyn, with Bobby Flay's nacho-style burger taking the people's choice award. (If you're inspired, browse our collection of Bobby's best burger recipes.)

Shake Shack Burger

This year's judge's pick was a cheeseburger from Danny Meyer's NYC-based Shake Shack. Unlike some of the more offbeat burgers some of the chefs created, the winning burger was a classic.
