Bobby Flay vs. La Isla: French Toast
Set your DVR’s for Wednesday, March 17th at 9pm – The Food Network!
Throwdown with Bobby Flay in Hoboken
La Isla Restaurant, one of the most popular restaurants in this eclectic city will be feature on Food Network’s Throwdown with Bobby Flay on Wednesday, March 17th at 9pm.
The episode will feature Iron chef Bobby Flay against La Isla’s Chef Omar Giner as he tries to outdo Omar’s popular Stuffed French Toast with his own interpretation of this unique version of the classic breakfast dish.
La Isla has been a Hoboken institution for over 40 years and under the ownership of the Giner and Luis families since 1996. During Omar’s tenure, the inconspicuous 39 seat restaurant has attained local cult status for its unique combination of authentic Cuban cuisine and Omar’s creative Nuevo Latino interpretations. It has consistently been named as one of the top restaurants in the state by NJ Monthly and has garnered some of the highest Zagats food ratings in the state.
The Food Network episode was filmed in Hoboken in mid December in front of a live audience.
