Food News: Bobby’s Burger Palace in Roosevelt Field Mall (Garden City) Opens

Making his way out to Nassau County, Bobby Flay himself ushered in the opening of his new burger spot, Bobby’s Burger Palace, yesterday in Roosevelt Field Mall, marking his second Long Island location (and 9th overall) of the growing brand.

If you’re asking yourself why a mall location for this restaurant, note that this is the second mall for the Burger Palace brand on Long Island. They original opened a few years ago back in Lake Grove at the Smith Haven Mall. We’ve always wondered why they chose to go out there first and left Nassau in the dust, but now we’re satisfied that it’s in our neck of the woods as well.

As Bobby Flay told us at a pre-launch event, there’s three components to a great burger joint. There’s the great hamburger, fries and shake. Bobby’s Burger Palace does all three quite well. We stuck with our standard Crunchburger, a cheeseburger topped with potato chips for that extra crunch, served with a pickle on the side. Any burger can get “crunchified” for free, so you don’t have to go with the crunchbuger for the chips.

The shakes are monsters as well. There are 11-ounces of ice cream in every shake and it’s not for those who may be counting calories. Thick, creamy and able to be “spiked”, this is a lunch of champions.

A unique dining experience, the tables are set up one of two ways at BBP. There’s the serpentinian counter that winds its way through the restaurant, with overhead lighting that follows every curve. At the other side of the restaurant is the straight communal table. With either seating option you can sit with other people, but don’t be shy; it adds to the experience.

Opening day lines were out the door and over 50-strong and never ceased to let up. This is truly a new concept for Nassau County, the people are truly excited and we look forward to going there for many years to come.
