The world gets to take a bite out of Kyle Huebbe tonight in DUMBO.
The real-estate broker, whose hamburger was named the best in the borough by The Brooklyn Paper earlier this summer — will get 400 pounds of beef and a griddle at tonight’s New York Wine and Food Festival’s sold out Burger Bash.
Huebbe’s exemplary mound of meat, which featured a nifty horseradish sauce, impressed our judges — and will hopefully excite the public as Huebbe takes on the likes of Polo Dobkin of DuMont Burger, Zac Pelaccio of Fatty Crab, Greg and Mark Sherry of the Old Homestead and Al “Hack on Ice” Roker.
“I’ve got my Portuguese muffins lined up from Greene Grape Provisions,” Huebbe said about his other secret ingredient. “And my cooks and I have gone over how it’s going to go.”
Since winning our contest, Huebbe, a real-estate broker by day, has had offers to return to his first line of work: cooking. As such, his boss, legendary broker Chris Havens, is worried.
“He’s going to win,” Havens said. “And then I’ll never see him again.”
