If you like burgers and/or beer, Burgers and Brews
is an event you must not miss. On Royal Street in the heart of the French Quarter, 10 top chefs from New Orleans and around the country will be serving their own unique version of the hamburger for all to savor. Headliners among the competing restaurants will be the landmark Camellia Grill and the incomparable Dickie Brennan's steakhouse. All attending will have the opportunity to taste them all, vote for their favorite and elect the best.
To drink, sample any or all of 12 beers from around the country - national and local artisan brews
For dessert: cherry pie, made by Texas Pieman Bud Royer and presented, of course, à la mode. (Bud will be serving several kinds of his out-of-this-world pie at the street festival during the day, but this cherry pie is being made exclusively for the Burgers and Brews event Saturday night.) This is a ticketed event with a limited number of tickets available for $75/each, including all the burgers and brews you want.
