Toronto is saying hello to September by devoting an entire week to its love of burgers. That’s right,Ā Le Burger Week is back!

First started in 2012 by Montreal entrepreneurs Naā€™eem Adam and Thierry Rassam, theĀ annual burger festivalĀ has gone national this year with simultaneousĀ events happening in 11 cities across six provinces in Canada. Not to mention that south of the border, cities like Buffalo, Cleveland, and OmahaĀ have embraced Le Burger Week too.

Taking placeĀ over a week from September 1 to 7, nearly 400 restaurants,Ā including at least 40 restaurants in Montreal, will participateā€“each of which will be ā€œcalled upon to create a unique burger; reflective of their overall concept and cuisine. These participating restaurants then offer a special ā€œburger priceā€, where burger aficionados are encouraged to come eat and vote on the website.ā€

Winners inĀ four categories (ā€œVoted Bestā€; ā€œJudgeā€™s Choiceā€, ā€œMost Outrageousā€, and the ā€œHealthiest Burger,ā€) will be announced at the end of the festival.

Participating Montreal restaurants include:

Also new this year, Le Burger Week specials will be available for delivery via JustEatā€“the final line-up of restaurants and menus will be posted online.

Burger-lovers are also being encouraged to share the love via theĀ ā€˜Buy A Friend A Burgerā€™ initiative which lets Montrealers purchase vouchers for burgers online to that meant to be gifted to a buddy and redeemed for beef patties at participating restaurants.
