  1. Bobby who? Here are the celeb chefs I want to see open a restaurant in Louisville


    December 2, 2014 by Ashlee Clark Thompson

    It’s a good thing I’ve settled my imaginary beef with Bobby Flay. It looks like this celebrity chef is making serious googly eyes at Louisville.

    The Courier-Journal reported back in September that Flay was scouting possible locations to open a restaurant in Louisville. And Insider Louisville is hearing some buzz that Flay’s going to set up in the former Burger’s Market on Grinstead Drive.

    I used to have an unreasonable dislike for Flay. I didn’t like how he rolled into town with his Food Network show, Throwdown with Bobby Flay, like he owned the joint and challenged chefs. Quit showing off, Flay. Then I met him in person when I was a reporter on the red carpet at the Barnstable Brown party. He was actually pretty nice, which completely squashed the rivalry I had built in my head.

    So, I’m cool with Flay coming to Louisville. It’s just that there are a few other celebrity chefs and TV personalities that I would like to see make a restaurant home in Louisville. Come along with me as I play pretend with folks I’d like to see in our city.

    Blogger’s note: I haven’t been under a rock for the past week or so. Rather, I’ve been under the thumb of The Man. My responsibilities at the day job really kicked into gear this week. After 10-hour days of looking at a computer screen, I had to give my mind and eyes a break from the digital world when I got home. I think I’m past the worst, though. So, onward!

    This has been a crazy couple of weeks. Technically, kind of a crazy year. But let me start in the present.

    I’ve been absent or only halfheartedly involved in the interwebs for the past two weeks because I’ve focused on completing my application for grad school. I sent my materials off yesterday (almost 24 hours before the deadline — improvement!).
