In his Food Network Show, Food Nation™, Bobby Flay traveled across the U.S. sampling foods of many cultures. Today, he combines his favorite tastes and love of the grill into one of the most unique American menus available. Bobby’s Burgers offers 5-star, made-to-order deliciousness he discovered along his legendary career.
Did you know Bobby was the first chef to be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? He is also the author of 16 cookbooks and has amassed five daytime Emmy Awards. A proven success in the kitchen and a formidable restauranter who curates memorable dining experiences for guests worldwide.
The two first collaborated when they swung open the doors of Mesa Grill in New York in 1991. Since then, the creative pair have opened multiple other restaurant locations in the U.S. and internationally. Kretchmer oversees all operational, financial, and business matters as well as new business development for Bobby and Laurence’s restaurants. Kretchmer’s business and management acumen and extensive restaurant development and operations experience symbiotically work with Flay’s talents for creating ever–evolving and irresistible menus. The two enjoy a close friendship and a complementary professional alliance. Yet at the heart of it, Kretchmer puts it best, “We‘re both hard–core New Yorkers.” The pair thrives on the energy of dining out and works tirelessly to infuse their own restaurants with this vitality and excitement.
