2013 Brainfood Burger Battle 

Ten of DC’s best chefs competed for the title of Brainfood Burger Battle Champion on Sunday, June 30th, 2013 to find out who makes the best burger in DC.  It was a wonderful way to spend summer Sunday afternoon and a great time was had by all!

Chefs were allowed to use any meat, bread or accompaniment they chose to wow the panel of judges and be declared the Brainfood Burger Battle Champion.

Hosted by Poste Moderne Brasserie and the winners of the 2012 Brainfood Grill-Off, Chef Dennis Marron of Poste and Chef Teddy Folkman of Granville Moore’s, the Brainfood Burger Battle raised funds to support Brainfood’s food-focused programming serving DC teens.
