Bad Daddy's in national contest

Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar will compete in the 2015 Amstel Light Burger Bash Feb. 20, hoping to win the People's Choice Award. Thirty burger chefs will vie in the competition, part of the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami, hosted by Rachael Ray. Bad Daddy founder Frank Scibelli worked with his corporate chef, Tim Kast, and Kast's team to create something called The Bash Daddy: a burger made of short rib, brisket and chuck, with Raclette and Comte cheeses, onions caramelized with Amstel and bacon, and housemade mustard aioli, on a potato bun. Bad Daddy's was chosen to compete by ground-beef purveyor Schweid & Sons.
