Qburgers trending at Culinaria

Hyatt Regency's Q on the Riverwalk serves up hot Qburgers at Culinaria.

Capping Culinaria's five-day run this year, hundreds of tipsy meat eaters swarmed a corner of the Pearl grounds Sunday soaking in midday sun, beef, barbeque, and booze. Big at this year's Burgers, BBQ, Beer were local hotel restaurants, like the Hyatt Regency's Q on the Riverwalk, which churned out Qburger sliders (roasted poblanos, Kobe beef, and smoked pork butt, chipotle coleslaw, and a house Carolina barbeque sauce) en masse. Tables featuring Las Canarias, housed inside the Omni's Mansión del Rio, drew long lines with lobster rolls and wagyu beef burgers topped with any choice of truffle aioli, foie gras mousse, black garlic mayo, or (for the truest of carnivores) a bourbon bacon jam. Despite the event's name, beer selection was thin and dull — though Rebecca Creek kept everyone well lubricated with vodka cranberries and whiskey. Local chef Jason Dady broke out his own notable concoction aptly named "Hair of the dog," a smoked bloody mary made with 1876 vodka, 2 Brothers barbeque sauce, and pepperoncini.
