`Burger Bloodbath' Tickets Will Cost $150 →

pricehike:

Ben Leventhal, who hosts a pretty rad `Burger Bloodbath’ every year in the Hamptons, has hiked the price of the competitive meatfest to $150pp, up 20% from 2011’s price of $125. There are a limited number of friends and family tickets currently being sold for $100. 

Related: Leventhal is calling it the (Montauk) Superburger this year. Public tickets will go on sale next week exclusively through Eater. Last year, Leventhal partnered with Gilt City to host the event. 

We at The Price Hike prefer the Eater People.

FloFab of @NYTDining declined the Eater #pizzaweek pie, but told us to give it to security. Happy day for Lou

Thus far, the runaway highlight of Eater’s first-ever Pizza Week.

I don’t know if “generous” is the correct word here, but one has to maximize one’s entries for something this important.

Tonight at Osteria Morini, Chris Cannon and Michael White’s game-changing new Soho outpost, (l to r), @mokoyfman, the man himself @Chefbianco, @MarkyMeat. And way, way more meat than any of us could ever eat (given it followed apps, pastas, and God knows what other deliciousness—tough to recall in the depths of this food coma). Couldn’t even make it all the way through the BONE-ON BACON. Just terrific. 
The Quotable White (or, as Mo rebranded him for downtown, Michael Black): “This isn’t fucking Marea!” Which, it turns out, is a good thing. A very good thing.
