CLEVELAND — Cleveland Burger Week is back!
The meaty annual event kicks off Monday and runs through Sunday. Thirty area restaurants are serving up $6 burgers in honor of the festivities.
"The idea is to get people to embrace the food, culture and Cleveland-love while getting them out to eat, drink, and try new places," organizers say. "We will even be printing Burger Passports for participants to get stamped at participating locations throughout the week. Collect at least five stamps and be eligible for a very special grand prize drawing featuring a Grill and Ultimate Grill Out."
Passports are available at participating restaurants and at burgerweekcleveland.com. Participants include classics like Bearden’s and Gunselman’s, trendy joints like Ninja City and the Nano Brew, and locations on the east, west, and south sides of town.
Toppings range from fried pickles and hot sauce aioli (Southern Tier) to cheese, bacon and a "well done egg" (Teamz) to smoked Gouda and tomato jam (Fast Eddie’s)--and, of course, peanut butter at Bearden’s. In addition to beef burgers, many restaurants are offering vegetarian substitutes.
