Restaurant notes: Bobby Flay to sign, rolls for charity

The Iron Chef is pushing a cookbook; Variety Club to benefit.

Restaurant notes: Bobby Flay to sign, rolls for charity


  • Bobby Flay is touring to push his new cookbook, Bobby Flay’s Throwdown! More Than 100 Recipes From Food Network’s Ultimate Cooking Challenge. He'll hit two Williams-Sonoma stores on Wednesday, Oct. 13, to sign autographs: King of Prussia at 1 p.m. and the Bellevue (Broad and Walnut Streets) at 6 p.m.  I'm sure he'll also drop by his Bobby's Burger Palace in University City between engagements.
  • Buy a roll, help a kid: Eagles right tackle Winston Justice has teamed up with the Rittenhouse Square restaurant Zama (128 S. 19th St.) on the "Justice for All" roll ($16), which consists of eight pieces of spicy tempura snow crab and shishi-toh pepper wrapped in soy paper, topped with tuna and scallion, and finished with chopped wasabi mayo and black tobiko. A portion of proceeds from the sale this month will go to the Variety Club.
  • Pod in University City now takes payment by Xipwire, a service that allows people to send money through their smart phone. Details at Xipwire's site.
  • The Prime Rib in the Radisson-Warwick sends word that it's searching for ugly men's and women's sportcoats. Bring one in before Oct. 31 and pose for a photo that will be posted on the steakhouse's website. Two weeks of voting will start Nov. 2. Winner gets dinner for two and a $100 gift certificate.
