Last night Time Out New York and Amstel Light threw their annual Battle of the Burgers at the Hudson Hotel paring the top hamburgers the Big Apple has to offer agains each other. We were there with celebrity chef Richard Blais as guests of Amstel Light and got to sample all the creations. After sampling about eight burgers we predicted that Maialino (2 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10010) would take the crown and it looks like we were correct.

Crunchified beef burger with queso sauce, green chili pickle relish and potato chips. This was the burger combination that landed chef Bobby Flay the coveted Amstel Light People’s Choice Award at the Amstel Light Burger Bash in South Beach. Flay has been competing in the Amstel Light Burger Bash in South Beach since 2006 and this is his first win. In fact, for the last three years Flay’s burgers placed second behind fellow chef (and Flay’s bestfriend) Michael Symon who took home the coveted honor every year since 2010. “It’s about time,” Flay told the Assiocated Press. “The green chilies were my secret weapon. I pulled out all the stops for this one. Michael Symon is a tough guy to beat.” And more good news for RSVLTS.com readers living in and around New York City. Bobby’s Burger Place in Paramus, NJ will be serving the winning burger so you can give it a taste for yourself.
