Can you walk and chew (W)holeburgers at the same time? You'll find out this Saturday when 4food launches its first pop-up at UrbanSpace Meatpacking - a large open-air market located directly below the High Line and across the street from the Standard Hotel. The 4food (W)holeburger Bar will feature our baked to order Mac & Cheese and our freshly roasted russet, sweet, and purple potato medley known as Square Roots. On the burger roster are some of our ever so popular Chef Builds - Mac Daddy (Beef + Mac & Cheese + Pancetta Bacon) and The Morning After (Pork + Potato Chorizo Hash + Fried Egg). Also in the lineup are some customer created Buildboard Chart crowd favorites like the Avocado Chili Mango scooped CaliBurger and the Spinach & Garlic scooped MGR Lamb Burger. As it happens the geniuses behind these two builds will be amongst those inducted into the (W)holeburger Wall of Fame at the 4food Anniversary Celebration on the first Friday in September.
The (W)holeburger Bar begins slinging burgers Saturday September 1st, and will run 7 days a week from 11am - 9pm until October 28th. Visit http://urbanspacenyc.com/ for more information about the market.
ON THE CHART/CHARTBEAT: COLORS, SKINNY RICH (FILL IN THE BLANK), AND AWARDED (W)HOLEBURGERS
Another week and a few farewells to be given - Moon boot burger has left orbit, Green Turkey Burger has slowed down with bringing in the green, and Cali4nication is out but we are not betting for long as it is soon to be honored for its platinum status at 4food’s (W)holeburger Awards! Almost passed yet lingering into the Fall is Summer Sandwich tied at #10 with better blues burger (with green above and blue here perhaps the chart and its customers share a dislike for food with added color). Tied at #7 are two newcomers - MAO1155’S Brioche-Veggie-Spinach & Garlic-Shiitake Mushroom-Lettuce-Tomato-Mustard Skinny Rich Bri-oche and KYLEIDOSCOPE’S Brioche-Beef-Avocado & Chili Mango-Pancetta Bacon-Bleu Cheese-Lettuce-Onion-Pickle-Tomato-Cranberry The Salad Days. Still circling the waters, and Angela’s Veggie 2 for that matter, is the SHARKburger at #5. The next few feature a veteran and two relative newbies all tied at #3 - the platinum all-time best-selling CaliBurger by AHARRIS, the promspleen by no other than its namesake PROMSPLEEN, and IAMTHEMATT’S Back2Basics. Anchoring the #2 spot again is JFAVUZZA’S recently turned golden Better Turkey Burger. Knocked down again last week but with a determination that wouldn’t leave them on the mat for long is JANINEDM’S Burger De La Hoya at #1. Summer wraps this weekend and thus it is back to the heave ho for many - we look forward to seeing some old familiar faces next week!
