Regatta Bar and Grille, soon-to-be Bourbon Prime Steakhouse, has announced today that it will be participating 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, cultivated mushrooms to create a delicious, healthier, and more sustainable burger.

Chef Donnie Orr has chosen to feature The Bourbon Prime Burger, $13, to showcase a healthier burger, from Memorial Day, May 30th through July 31st, 2016. The Bourbon Prime Burger is a delicious mix of morel and wild mushroom duxelle, local ground beef, house-made smoked ricotta, pickled onions and ramps, watercress, cured farm egg yolk, and sweet heirloom tomato jam.

Blending meat with mushrooms reduces calories, fat, and sodium while adding important nutrients like vitamin D, potassium, and B vitamins. A blended burger also brings more sustainable, plant-based items to menus allowing Americans to enjoy the taste and flavor of the burgers they love, knowing it’s healthier and more sustainable preparation.

  •     Post your Bourbon Prime burger photos to social media with the hashtag #blendedburgerproject and #bourbonprime to spread the word!

When the promotion concludes at 11:59pm EST on July 31st, 2016, the five (5) chefs with the most votes by consumers will win a trip to NYC in October 2016 to cook their “blended burger” dish at the James Beard House.
