Meatball Madness Competitor Announced: Michael Sullivan

Last month, we announced that the New York Wine and Food Festival would, in conjunction with Eater, offer up the final coveted spot in the first annual Meatball Madness event to a worthy Eater reader. The winner will be given the chance of a lifetime to compete against meatballs from restaurants such as Convivio and The Little Owl to claim the coveted title. After poring over the entries, it's now time to pick a winner.

2009_07_mikemeatball.jpgAfter a weekend of going through the final candidate applications, the deliberation committee has decided that Michael Sullivan, the chef at Greenpoint newcomer Anella, has earned the chance to go head-to-head against some of the best meatball makers in the city to win a $5,000 grand prize and infinite glory at this year's New York Wine and Food Fest Meatball Madness. Though Sullivan is a working chef, it was his back story, not his resume, that won him the spot in the competition. As a bonus, runners up Nick Suarez and Andrew Shapiro each win a pair of tickets to watch the whole thing go down.

And don't worry, amateur chefs out there. Eater has another spot at another marquee event to give away tomorrow. Stay tuned, and congrats to today's winners. Here's hoping Sullivan wins it all.
