In 2013, Time Out New York readers voted the burger at Woodside standby Donovan’s Pub the best in the city. This year, Donovan’s is again a contender in The Battle of the Burger, alongside 19 challengers, ranging from Minetta Tavern’s decadent Black Label patty, which comes drenched in caramelized onions and drizzled with clarified butter, to Petey’s Burger’s no-nonsense, California-style double cheeseburgers. Get a bite of them all at this tasting event held at the South Street Seaport, before the winner is officially announced in the magazine. There will be complimentary pints on hand from Amstel Light, as well as a number of other beer-and-burger deals around town.
