It’s that time of year again, from June 5th to August 3rd Chef Jose Mendin will be firing up the grill and inviting his famous friends to come and join him for the much-anticipated PB Burger season. Pubbelly Noodle Bar diners will get to choose from a tasty collection of burgers available Monday thru Thursday, plus, each Wednesday there will be a celebrity guest chef meet and greet to talk about the exclusive burger of their creation that’s being featured on the menu that week.
For every delicious burger you bite into on Wednesdays, the Pubbelly Group will donate $1 to The James Beard Foundation through the Blended Burger Project.
Celebrity guest chefs include current local favorites as well as a few held near and dear to the heart of Miami. Each guest chef is asked to create a burger of their choosing inspired by some of their favorite flavor profiles. Every year the PB Burger event seems to last longer and longer, allowing for more happy burger filled bellies - and there’s no complaints here!
