Culinary icon and acclaimed Food Network host Bobby Flay and his daughter, Sophie, hit the streets in search of the greatest local dishes around in the new series “The Flay List,” premiering Thursday, April 11 (10:30 p.m. ET/PT). Over six half-hour episodes, Bobby visits the culinary spots he has frequented for years in his beloved hometown of New York City, while Sophie introduces her dad to her latest discoveries. Whether it's a visit to Joe's Pizza in Greenwich Village for a classic New York slice, or a ferry ride for some delicious lobster rolls at Red Hook Lobster Pound, Bobby and Sophie visit the old school and new alike, taking viewers on a culinary experience like no other.
"Bobby's background as an elite chef and restaurateur, having worked in New York City restaurants since he was a teenager, coupled with Sophie's experiences growing up around the best chefs and food in the world, offers the audience a unique, up-close-and-personal view into Bobby and Sophie's favorite culinary destinations that are perfect for all generations," said Courtney White, president, Food Network.
During the season, Bobby and Sophie visit the ever-buzzing Chelsea Market for some tacos at Los Tacos No.1, while grabbing creamy Italian gelato for dessert at Bobby's favorite, L'Arte del Gelato. Afterward, Sophie takes Bobby to Greenpoint, Brooklyn, for her taco pick at hotspot Oxomoco. In another episode, Bobby and Sophie start the day with a joyride on bikes as they head to the Lower East Side for Sophie's pick, Sweet Chick. After the meal, they check out Morgenstern's gourmet ice cream parlor, which Bobby's been dying to try, before heading to his pick of Blue Ribbon, where he spent a lot of time early in his career. Other episodes include stops at J.G. Melon for Bobby's burger selection, Sophie's taste for Detroit-style pizza at Emily, and a stroll to Korea Town for some dessert at Grace Street Café, followed by a steak dinner at Bobby's old-school pick, Wolfgang's Steakhouse.
