Third Annual Cheesesteak Challenge
The Third Annual Cheesesteak Challenge, sponsored by CityEats, celebrates the city's best-known cheesy creation by assembling 12 of the city's top chefs at Hotel Palomar and Square 1682, including David Boyle from Davio's and Daniel Stern from R2L. Each of the 12 chefs concocts a variation of the classic dish. Past entries have included pork-and-chicken confit with truffle aged cheddar in steamed bao buns, or cheesesteak spring rolls with spicy housemade ketchup. A panel of local food personalities, journalists, or sports figures crown a winner, while guests select a People's Choice and a panel of historians expound upon the cheesesteak's pivotal role in forging Philadelphia's other great cultural export, Hall & Oats.
