The Throwdown is Over. Now It’s Time to Eat More Burgers.
Now that the D.C. Burger Throwdown is but a greasy memory, there’s just one thing left to do: EAT MORE BURGERS. Continuing with the goodness from Sunday’s competition, five Throwdown chefs will be serving burger specials at their restaurants all week long and donating a portion of each sale to D.C.-based non-profit Deaf-REACH.
Burger Days’ Burger Week specials, available now through Sunday, include:
• The People’s Champ, Travis Weiss, will sling his award-winning Ramsay Bolton burger at The Commodore. The crowd favorite features Weiss’s proprietary Rebellion beef blend patty topped with Cabot white cheddar, spicy bread and butter pickles, bacon bits, smoked foie gras mayo, 1000 Island and shredded iceberg on a sesame seed brioche.

• Swapping out the duck for beef, Alfie’s Alex McCoy will serve his Girl, Shake That Daffy Patty with a Creekstone Farms beef patty, bacon “XO” ketchup, Chinese mustard, smoked cheddar, coriander, scallion and pickled cucumber.

• And finally, while Thunderlips, the Judges’ favorite burger from Sunday, isn’t on the menu this week, John Critchley’s equally-delicious Brine burger with cheddar, onion jam and secret-sauced slaw is ready to be taken down.

Two dollars from each burger above sold during Burger Days’ Burger week will benefit Deaf-REACH, an organization seeking to maximize the quality of life of deaf and hard of hearing individuals and families.
Go forth and eat.
