Bobby Flay Opens Another Bobby’s Burger Palace in Bethesda

It's been five years since celebrity chef Bobby Flay opened his first Bobby's Burger Palace in Long Island, N.Y. And yesterday, his 16th location opened in Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda.

Black & Orange 2.0 Opens Jan. 31

Early last month, Y&H chatted with chef Raynold Mendizabal about his forthcoming Black & Orange burger joint on 14th Street NW—the second location to sell Mendizabal's whimsically titled beef patties in the District.
