Uniburger owner Younes Bengeloune has sent Eater the exclusive lineup of signature burgers a cast of all-star Montreal chefs will concoct at the Latin Quarter restaurant next week. The occasion: Uniburger's second anniversary. Proceeds from the sales of the one-off burgers will benefit charity (the list of non-profits will be made public shortly). Here's the lineup (note, at the Ontario outlet of Uniburger only).
Monday, March 9: Fabrizio Covone (Bottega Pizzeria)
The "Vivace" burger with a mustard and parsley-flavoured beef patty, 'nduja, red onion, fresh spinach and ricotta.
Tuesday, March 10: Stephen Leslie (Tavern on the Square, Monkland Tavern, Le Sieur d'Iberville)
Lamb burger with merguez, feta bell pepper spread, grilled onions, pickles and mint yogurt.
Wednesday, March 11: Danny Smiles (Le Bremner)
Thursday, March 12: Emma Cardarelli (Nora Gray)
A meatball burger with a tomato sauce-braised veal and pork patty, Nora Gray pepperoncini, a slice of mozzarella di bufala, arugila and charcoal-grilled marinated onions.
Friday, March 13: Derek Dammann (Maison Publique)
Pork burger with romesco and aioli.
Saturday, March 14: Lionel Piraux (Lio Traiteur/private chef)
A re-mastered Quebec classic. The all-dressed cheeseburger with coleslaw, relish and yellow mustard (all homemade). In a nod to Piraux's Belgians roots, Uniburger will also serve beef tallow frites.

Double pimento cheeseburger with Dinette Triple Crown’s homemade bread and butter pickles, burger sauce, hot sauce, caramelized onions and fried pig's ears.
