The Burger Brackets continue to advance! By tomorrow, we'll know all the burger spots that have moved on to the third round (or, as a friend suggested we call it, the Edible Eight). Elevation Burger and their, um, devoted fans beat out Palena Cafe to advance; Matchbox and Capital Grille are still battling it out (so go vote!). But for right now, we have a tough match-up in the burger world. Check below.
Central: We're fans of Michel Richard's famed lobster burger, but don't ignore the beef patty at his French/American bistro: the $16 sandwich is less exotic, but it’s the burger of your fantasies, big and plump and dripping with juice.
Ray's Hell Burger: This unassuming spot serves only one dish: ten-ounce hamburgers made from prime beef. It’s the same farm-raised meat—aged in house—that steak lovers line up for at Ray’s the Steaks and Ray's the Classics, just ground in-house several times daily.
