Celebrity chef plans K Street burger joint

Food Network chef Bobby Flay signed a lease to bring his newest burger restaurant to 2121 K St., the Washington Business Journal reported last week.

The broker representing Flay told the Journal that Flay signed a lease for the 3,800 square for space for Bobby’s Burger Palace.

Flay already has five burger sites in the U.S., with locations in New York City and Philadelphia.

Bobby’s Burger Palace distinguishes itself from other burger joints by offering 10 signature burgers, along with sides, grilled cheese sandwiches, milkshakes and malts.

Flay’s restaurant will have to compete with Burger, Tap & Shake, a hamburger joint opening in The Avenue development next year.

That restaurant will serve similar fare, including hamburgers and milkshakes.
