Rouge Burger To Compete In Rachel Ray’s Burger Bash At The South Beach Wine & Food Fest In February

rouge in philadelphiaRouge’s Executive Chef Matthew Zagorski will be taking the famed Rouge Burger to the Amstel Light Burger Bash at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival next month to compete against the likes of NYC's Shake Shack, Rick Bayless out of Chi-town, and Michael Psilakis among others.

From a Rouge press release:
The restaurant’s signature Rouge Burger has garnered a slew of national press; GQ cited it number four on their “20 Burgers You Must Eat Before You Die,” and Oprah featured it on her show as among the best burgers in the country.

On February 19, Chef Zagorski will compete against other ‘best burger’ contenders at the Amstel Light Burger Bash, hosted by Rachel Ray, at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival in Miami.
Good luck Rouge. Make Philadelphia proud.

Oh, and Masaharu Morimoto will also be competing. In the Burger Bash.

Really? We were not so much aware that Morimoto liked to rock a burger. Never saw it on the menu…

(Note: Morimoto, we'd route for you too if you'd show Philadelphia some goddamn love already…)
