Slate Wine Bar + Bistro Announces Participation in the James Beard Foundation's Blended Burger Project

In an effort to promote healthier and more sustainable burgers, Slate Wine Bar + Bistro is joining the James Beard Foundation’s Blended Burger Project

Slate Wine Bar + Bistro is set to participate in The James Beard Foundation’s (JBF) Blended Burger Project™, a nationwide contest and challenge to make a "blended burger" by blending ground meat with finely chopped mushrooms to create a delicious, healthier, and more sustainable burger.

Chef Danny Lledó will feature the Super Filet Mignon Cheeseburger as a part of the summer menu from May 29 through July 31, 2017. This burger blends Porcini mushrooms and garlic with Superior Black Angus Tenderloin, and is served with chipotle aioli, crispy shallots, tomato, lettuce, and Gruyere cheese on a brioche bun.

Slate Wine Bar + Bistro is a neighborhood wine bar helmed by award-winning chef & sommelier, Danny Lledó. With a New American menu inspired by Chef Danny's Spanish and Portuguese heritage and his upbringing in the kitchen, Slate redefines American cuisine to fit today's taste. The 150+ wine selection offers endless choices for every taste bud, and is paired with humble, honest hospitality that invites you to return again and again.

About the James Beard Foundation (JBF):
Founded in 1986, the James Beard Foundation celebrates, nurtures, and honors chefs and other leaders making America's food culture more delicious, diverse, and sustainable for everyone. A cookbook author and teacher with an encyclopedic knowledge about food, the late James Beard was a champion of American cuisine. He helped educate and mentor generations of professional chefs and food enthusiasts, instilling in them the value of wholesome, healthful, and delicious food. Today JBF continues in the same spirit by administering a number of diverse programs that include educational initiatives, food industry awards, scholarships for culinary students, publications, chef advocacy training, and thought-leader convening. The Foundation also maintains the historic James Beard House in New York City’s Greenwich Village as a “performance space” for visiting chefs.
