If you have FiOS on Long Island, you’ll know that the best show on the air is Restaurant Hunter, airing on FiOS1 Long Island, Thursday nights at 8pm (shameless plug, since you can find us on there weekly, as well, with host Rob Petrone). If you watched the most recent episode featuring an entire episode dedicated to Bobby Flay and a great interview with the culinary master, they made mention of viewers helping to create a “Long Island Burger”.
This week’s Restaurant Hunter is a special one. Rob Petrone, our favorite host, is spending the entire half hour with Chef Bobby Flay himself. Bobby has been all over Long Island lately. His latest restaurant, Bobby’s Burger Palace, has opened at Roosevelt Field (complementing their other LI location in Lake Grove) and is already immensely popular.

Thursday, January 5th @8pm. Only on FiOS1 Long Island.
At the end of any year it’s always fun to look back at where we’ve explored across Long Island and compile a small list of our favorite restaurants and dining destinations. This year we’ve done just that and we’re pleased to present to our readers our 2011 Year – End Favorites.
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.
Two years ago Bobby Flay opened up Bobby’s Burger Palace in the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove. We’re not sure what his thinking was on the location choice, since he spends most of his time in NYC (Roosevelt Field or even Walt Whitman malls would’ve been closer), but one thing is for sure; he’s bringing a unique flavor to Suffolk County with this burger dominated menu.
