Two local restaurants have reached the final four in the annual New York Beef Council’s best-burger contest.
The Brewer Union Cafe in Brewerton and Ale ‘n Angus in Syracuse will join Ben’s Fresh of Port Jervis and Illusive Restaurant and Bar of Rensselaer in the final cookoff at 1 p.m. on May 9 at Onondaga County Community College. A panel of judges will select the winner.
The contest opened April 1, with the public voting for their favorite burger. The top 10 were announced last week, which included five Central New York restaurants. The final four was announced earlier this week.
Ale ‘n Angus, the reigning champion, has won the contest three times in four years.
