We’re Gonna Come Right Out And Say It: BOBBY FLAY GO HOME

“Hey guys, are you sure? Because I’d REALLY like to bro down with all of my cool bros on the Penn campus. Gimme some up top!”

There are those among us who would say that Bobby Flay, celebrity chef and probable inspiration for the male half of the “Two A-Holes” skits on Saturday Night Live, knows how to cook a steak and should thus be given a right to spread his dickish brand wherever he wishes. Please do not confuse us with those people. So when we learned, via Grubstreet, that Flay was planning to set up shop in West Philly, we had one, single, clear, and true reaction: NO. Flay is a hack. The city’s food scene — already thriving and wonderful and challenging — does not need him. And Jose already kicked his ass once. So, no, Bobby Flay. No. Do not come here. Go buy some Yankees tickets or something instead. Go home, Bobby Flay. Go home.

    My thoughts exactly!!!!!

  • Brynne Ashton

    agreed. He’s got a hubris that won’t quit. Like Emeril, most of his food is heavy and uninspired. He will look bushleague compared to Garces.

    First of all, this is OLLLLLLLD news… Secondly, if you don’t think Bobby Flay is a good chef, you are an idiot. Sure you can hate him for being the shameless TV whore that he is, but I’ll bet he would cook circles around most chefs in this town, including many of the ones you are so quick to annoint on this site. Maybe if he opened up a shack near a merry-go-round like Starr or a hipster haven full of attitude and bad service like Tommy you would like it better. I smell a Throwdown, see you in line!

    what exactly makes him a hack? He built himself up like any other notable chef so is it justh is personality?

    1. Fill pot with water
    2. Turn on stove
    3. Place pot on stove

    Voila, you’ve boiled water.

  • Terry

    I think the fact that he had the nerve to call his restaurant “Bar Americain” speaks volumes regarding his douche factor…and I might not be able to boil water but at least I can type and spell. ;)
