bn-championship-emblemThe 2014 BurgerMonday Championship is a single-elimination tournament pitting eight of London’s top burger chefs against each other in head-to-head matches.

The opening round of the championship will begin in May, with the first of four Monday night quarter-final clashes. Match-ups will be determined by a random draw. The winners will meet in two semi-final burger-offs in June, setting the stage for the final in July.

All the chefs from the restaurants and traders featured on the young&foodish Top 10 burgers in London list are invited to compete:

Elliot’s Cafe
Patty & Bun
Bar Boulud
Bleecker St Burger
Honest Burgers
Lucky Chip
Burger Bear

Should 9 or even all 10 of these burger pros accept their invitation the tournament will have to be expanded to accommodate them all. Should fewer than 8 accept the open spots will be filled by worthy candidates suggested by you and your fellow burgers devotees on Twitter, on Facebook or in the comments section below.

So who are we overlooking? Who is an absolute must for the 2014 #BMChampionship?
