SoBe Burger Bash: No Dice for Frontera, Sola Rocks the Side Dish


MP:SoFla editor Carolina’s report from South Beach on last night’s Burger Bash will be up on our brother blog Grub Street soon enough, but a sneak preview of the part you care about:

No, sadly, Rick Bayless didn’t win for Frontera Grill, and neither did Carol Wallack for Sola — though she did win Best Potato Side (a new award this year, sponsored by the Idaho Potato Commission) for her truffle fries. The fries aren’t limited to South Beach festivalgoers, either — they’re featured on Sola’s regular menu and are, we can confidently say, delicious.

UPDATE: The official report on the Burger Bash is now up at Grub Street. Spike (of Top Chef fame) took home the big award.

Sola’s burger offering is above — for Frontera’s, see after the jump.
