Owner Kathy Sidell and chef David Daniels of the MET Restaurant Group have something to be proud of: a burger they created has been picked up by a national chain of restaurants. Their “Jacques Burger” (an homage to Kathy’s father, Jack Sidell) was declared a winner at the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival, and will now be served for a limited time at Red Robin restaurants across the country. Red Robin has rechristened their burger “The Billion Dollar Baby” and it comes topped with peppered bacon, a golden-fried potato cake, creamy, truffle-flavored cheese blend, melted Fontina cheese, mayo, shredded romaine and grilled tomatoes on a toasted ciabatta bun. Sounds delicious (although we wish they kept the original name!)
