The Food Network has a great line up of new shows, new chefs, and tons of food for this fall.
| Chefs vs. City
Premieres: Friday, August 7th at 10pm
Acclaimed chefs Chris Cosentino and Aaron Sanchez are pitted against two local foodies in a winner-takes-all race through a different city each week, through the most fascinating, unusual food locations. Each team begins with a clue leading them to their first food challenge. Challenges could include everything from wine stomping to the eating the spiciest chili west of the Mississippi to diving for sea urchins! The five challenges take the chefs and foodies on an adrenaline-charged, food-lover’s tour of each city, and once complete, it’s a sprint to the finish line to see if the locals can protect their home turf or if the Food Network chefs can conquer a new city.

Guy Fieri visits a hoagie shop with fresh homemade rolls in Hollywood, Fla., and stops by a Portland, Ore., café serving mouthwatering house-cured pork belly. Then, on his mission for serious sandwiches, Guy heads to a Chicago joint known for their pot roast on a bun.
As you know we are continuously searching for the Best of Long Island Food. After eating a juicy and delicious burger creation at Bobby Flays Burger Palace I believe the search of best burger could be called off! Located in Suffolk at 355 Smith Haven Mall, Lake Grove, N.Y. 11755 (631)382-9590. The food at this fast food gourmet establishment will satisfy your burger cravings with a thick mouth watering burger patty that is then enhanced with complementary toppings that, when mesh together bring out unthinkable flavor creations. Sides offered include an appetizing order of french fries (my husbands favorite), sweet potato fries (my favorite and the healthy route), and/or onion rings.
Watching Bobby on TV you can’t help but wonder does the food taste good, is the drink that he just put together really that good? YES, YES, YES. We ordered the Frozen Cactus Pear Margarita and fell in love with the presentation and taste, wouldn’t expect anything less. We also ordered a Vanilla Bean Milkshake, OMG. Real ice-cream, not some processed crap that everyone else offers.
For two people you could easily spend $30.00, a little high for just a burger, but that’s just it is not your ordinary burger joint. Set in a trendy atmosphere with a staff that attends to your needs and maintains good cleanliness my overall experiences have been wonderful. Now for the ratings:

With the way today’s economy is going, one needs to be a little wiser with the way we spend. Yet, going out keeps us sane, we need to socialize and catch up with what’s happening in our lives. To help promote this situation Applebee’s restaurants are offering great deals to take advantage of.
It’s called the 2 for $20.00 deal. This is how it works. You can choose one appetizer from the four options given: Mozzarella Sticks, Crunchy Onion Rings, Boneless Buffalo Wings (our personal favorite), and Spinach & Artichoke Dip. Then once that’s selected you choose two entrees from the twelve options. Whether your watching your diet or are a man eating man, you can find something that will suit your appetite. The entrees include: Fire pit bacon burger, A.1. Steakhouse burger, quesadilla burger, 7oz. house sirloin, crispy shrimp, bacon cheeseburger, oriental chicken salad, riblet basket, fiesta lime chicken, three-cheese chicken penne, grilled chicken caesar salad, or chicken tenders basket. What a great selection everyone can enjoy: from burgers, to seafood, to salads, to chicken, to pasta your bound to find something.
Beside this great offer, they also have great lunch deals Monday-Fridays till 3pm. Another great deal is there 2 for 1 drinks during happy hour and after 10pm, plus after 10pm halve price appetizers.
