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.)

Last year's people's choice award winner, Lure Fish Bar's chef Josh Capon, got an earful from Bobby during the battle.

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.
