Chef Tony Priolo of Maillard Tavern was named the 2018 Buckhead Meat Chicago Hamburger Hop Award winner! His irresistible burger creation, The City Slicker, featured 1946 Buckhead Beef, with Black Truffle Pesto, Foie Gras Mayo, Seared Foie Gras, and Crispy Prosciutto Di Parma on a Turano Premium Potato Bun. Burgers were judged on a range of characteristics, including flavor, creativity and presentation. And in an exciting twist, making Hamburger Hop history, Priolo earned the People’s Choice Award making him the first chef to take home both titles! More than 1,000 guests used Blue Moon Brewing Co. bottle caps to cast their votes at each station.
