restaurants-to-try list. 

I’m sorry Bobby, I wasn’t impressed. 

Our entrees, pasta and a kale paella, didn’t hit the mark. The paella in particular was incredibly bland. The appetizer was good but the portions were off – a lot of dip with hardly any pita . The highlight of the meal was my bread pudding dessert, however, it had so much sugar dusting that I inhaled it and had a coughing fit. 

I think for any future Bobby Flay meals I’ll stick with Bar Americain.
