The end of a 27-year run on the Food Network may be near for television personality and chef Bobby Flay, who opened Amalfi by Bobby Flay and Bobby’s Burgers at Caesars Palace this year and plans on a second burger restaurant at Harrah’s Las Vegas. The two side are in the midst of a renegotiation of his contract as his exclusive three-year deal with Discovery+ ends at the end of the year. Variety reports that the Food Network ended the negotiations. Flay started with the network in 1994 when the cable station first aired. His long resume of television shows includes Beat Bobby Flay, Brunch at Bobby’s, Grillin’ and Chillin’, and The Flay List with his daughter Sophie. He also appeared on Chopped, Iron Chef America, Worst Cooks in America, The Best Thing I Ever Ate, and The Next Food Network Star. [Variety]

Raising Cane’s execs work the line in Vegas

About 250 corporate team members from Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers volunteered to work at restaurants to help out with the lack of employees. Among the executives who helped out in Las Vegas, AJ Kumaran, the co-CEO and chief operating officer of the Baton Rouge, Louisiana-base company. Kumaran tells Nation’s Restaurant News that three of the restaurants in Las Vegas are short on staff, and a new 5,000-square-foot flagship location opening on the Las Vegas Strip at the Showcase Mall in December needs staff to helm the restaurant with a 55-foot LED screen and mezzanine.

Diners can also pick up grab-and-go pastries and coffee at the restaurant at the Gramercy. [EaterWire]
