For those of you still adjusting to the news that Sandra Lee has infiltrated the governor’s mansion, you may want to avert your eyes from Grub Street‘s interview with Bobby Flay. Not only does he have big plans for Sunday’s marathon, he’s got big plans for us all, because Bobby Flay may very well run for office one day. More accurately, he will “definitely,” “absolutely” run for office one day. Which office, he doesn’t know, but he does know that “New York has always been so good to me, and I feel like when I have the opportunity I want to give back to the city.” Which means “maybe” as mayor. Should this ever occur, we imagine the resulting throwdowns with City Hall would put this business with the McRib to shame.
