Red Robin Social
Serving up awards at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival.
The Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival’s Amstel Light Burger Bash – presented by Schweid & Sons and hosted by Rachael Ray – is America’s most prestigious burger competition, which gives the country’s top culinary maestros and chefs the opportunity to display their creations and battle it out for burger supremacy. As a Platinum level sponsor of the festival, Red Robin is a natural fit for deciding which burger will take home the top prize at the Burger Bash®.
Best of the Bash Award
For the third year in a row, Red Robin invited all participants to submit their recipe for a chance to win $10,000 and have their build featured on Red Robin’s Finest premium burger menu. A panel of carefully selected judges, including celebrity chef and Food Network Chopped judge, Marc Murphy, along with Red Robin executives chose and presented the winning chef with “Red Robin’s Best of the Bash Award” on the Burger Bash® stage on Friday, Feb. 20.
Golden Robin Contest
Red Robin has also awarded Alex Bellow the opportunity of a lifetime. The senior at Florida International University’s (FIU) Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management was declared the winner of Red Robin’s Golden Robin Contest and will join Red Robin at the Festival to serve a taste of his Buffalo Mac ‘N Cheesy Burger to Festival attendees. His winning recipe earned him a $10,000 scholarship, compliments of Red Robin, and the chance for his gourmet burger to be featured as a limited-time menu offering at participating Red Robin restaurants nationwide later this year. The Buffalo Mac ‘N Cheesy Burger is a delicious take on a tavern-style cheeseburger with featuring Red Robin’s Mac ‘N cheese, melted Muenster cheese, Buffalo Sauce and ranch dressing on a toasted sesame seed bun.
