Come summer 2009, the famously lentil-averse, ginger-haired (but not Croc-wearing) Iron Chef joins the ranks of Michael Jordan and Jimmy Buffet by hooking Connecticut up with a Bar Americain and Bobby's Burger Palace. This will be the third location for his burger joint and the second outpost of Bar Americain. The latter is replacing Fidelia's in Casino of the Sky and the former will be in Casino of the Earth.
"I'm thrilled to be opening two of my restaurants at Mohegan Sun," said the star of the Emmy-winning Boy Meets Grill, and Throwdown! With Bobby Flay TV shows. "It's my first foray into New England and I'm looking forward to adding to the excitement that makes this property a world-class destination."
Indeed, we're pretty sure Uncasville, Connecticut probably could use a little more excitement.
