While reviewing a burger at the Morris Tap and Grill I met their new head chef, Eric LeVine. As we discussed our mutual admiration for the sweet cuisine of burgers, he mentioned his plans for a redesigning of the MTG menu, including an expansive burger menu titled the “Burger Bash.” He proceeded to tell me that they were having a tasting in a few weeks, and I was now invited to the very (self proclaimed) prestigious event. I would be sitting with other food bloggers and critics. Since I’m kind of a big deal, I eagerly accepted the invite.
Two weeks later I arrived at the MTG where I was escorted like royalty to the master table, which was a long “U” shaped table setup with the capacity to hold around 16 people and a display table in the center. We were in a “private” area where we could not be bothered by your average patron. This was a hell of a lot bigger of an event than I was led to believe. I went from thinking this was going to be a small tasting at the corner of the bar to realizing that this was the real deal. I was giddy like a school girl because this had the aroma of greatness. I sat down, and out of the corner of my eye noticed a packet. It had titles or burgers, ingredients, and questions for commenting and input.
