Here’s a little scrapbook of the fabulous (and winning) weekend at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival.
Our boys had a much needed beach hour before Burger Bash. Note- two of the boys drove the 26 hours to the bash and the other one made the 5600 tater tots. I think a little sun was well deserved.
Thought it was pretty cool we could pull the old benchmarc van up on the sand. All the way from NYC!
The set up. Yes, those are bricks. You can see Exec Sous, David Nichols and our FIU students in the background.
Someone posted this pic of Marc on his facebook and we thought it was a good one. Guests could have as much burger as they wanted but with 27 other burgers to try, I think they appreciated a sliver and two tots…oh the tots.
So here it is. I know it’s all over facebook now but just thought we could give it one last glance- THE BIG MARC- all beef patty with spiked ketchup, housemade pickles on a cheddar and jalapeno bun.
Rachel Ray tried our burger and must have loved it because WE WON the Judges Award! She had quite the entourage with her, including her husband and tons of photographers (that’s why they are so lit up). Thanks RACHEL!
Co-owner and wife of Marc Murphy, Pamela Schein Murphy and Best Bud (and terrific worker), Gabrielle Palay pose for a photo op. I think the photographers loved our shirts. Who wouldn’t?
THE WINNING TEAM! We wish the whole gang from NY could have come but somebody has to watch the restaurants here. Thanks to all who voted, cheered us on and contributed. It was a blast!
