Meatless Monday Challenges the Gotham Burger Social Club to Go Meatless this November

October 31st, 2016


The Gotham Burger Social Club loves its meat. And its bacon. Its members are world famous for visiting countless restaurants everywhere in search of the very best hamburgers.

The club was formed in the fall of 2013 by fifteen long-time friends. They began posting their reviews online accompanied by savory photos and mouthwatering commentary. Before long, Gotham Burger Social Club grew into a cultural phenomenon worldwide, enlisting over 133,000 loyal Instagram followers and receiving an abundance of press coverage.

That’s when Meatless Monday threw down the gauntlet. We challenged them to go meatless on Monday’s for the entire month of November. Then the unexpected happened…they agreed.

Follow us throughout November as the men from Gotham Burger Social Club swap their usual beef laden buns for veggie burgers each Monday. On Nov. 28th, they will announce the favorite from the ones they’ve tasted.

“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Meatless Monday,” said Mike Puma, founder of the Gotham Burger Social Club. “If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that there are all kinds of ways to make an incredible tasting burger – and that includes ones without meat. We can’t wait to share our picks for the best veggie burger in New York City.”

Stay tuned throughout November for special stories on the featured veggie burgers as well as interviews with the chefs and behind-the-scene looks at some of the restaurants. We’d love to hear your suggestions. Let us know on Facebook.
