One of the most important parts of Burger Week is determining—through a highly imperfect bracketing and voting system—which burger is the best burger in all the Bay Area. We've chosen 16 burger contenders in four categories from a list of Eater Burger Committee faves and reader submissions. The four categories are critics' favorite burgers, classic-style burgers, new school burgers and high class burgers.

Yesterday, readers decided that Pearl's was the best in our classic-style burger heat. Now it's time for the New School Burgers to face off. These are the hot shot, outside-the-box burgers in town, served in unexpected places where you might not expect to get a burger. A notable forerunner that did not make the cut, Mission Beach Cafe.
