Zagat: You've been on food TV so long, is the "stand and stir" type show on the decline and are things going more toward talk shows/reality shows? I know you're working on a talk show with Giada.
BF: That's a great question. I never know where things are going. I'm not a very good trendsetter and I'm not good at predicting trends. I try to feel what people are really looking for and I try to do it really well. I would love to do a talk show with Giada because we have a really good chemistry. We can talk about a lot of things like food and lifestyle but we can talk about being parents. We're both married, I've been divorced a few times. There's a lot of things we can talk about besides cooking behind a stove.
Zagat: What are the burger techniques that you are consider essential?
BF: Two things - cooking your burger on a flat top as opposed to a grill and melting the cheese completely.
Zagat: Bobby's Burger Palace I know is expanding to Cincinnati, any other plans for expansion?
BF: We're going to open one here in the Dadeland Mall about 20 minutes from here and we're looking at Potomac Mills Mall in Virginia as well.
Zagat: Which Miami restaurants do you love?
BF: I love Cecconi's at the Soho House, Casa Tua, Prime Steak, anything Michelle Bernstein does and Joe's Stone Crab of course.
Zagat: What else are you working on right now?
BF: I have some stuff going on...I'm this close to being able to talk about it...but not just yet.
