    Hi my brother & my son are trying to open a restaurant, NOW! They had to push the soft opening back by 2 weeks already & the Grand opening has to be August cause that’s when he has to start paying the mortgage on the building, there is plenty of potential here, but between the both of them there’s “0” experience… they are really trying hard, but I am worried for them… I know this is late, but if there is any way you can help I would be forever grateful!

      Hi Mandy. Bobby Flay’s representatives wrote us and asked us to promote this for him. You will need to contact him to see if there’s anything to do. As far as we know, though, he’s done filming this season of 3 Days to Open. There is always the chance for a new season, so why not contact him and see?

    Oh, and ‘btw’ the ladies of ‘up-up-upstate’ NY love you (‘totally cause you’re both radical & bitchin’ :p )

    So….you want to take an obvious chance, then stick with the “safe” options. But, if you want to truly inspire ‘genius’ and ‘ingeniousnes’ then have a ‘chopped’ show with complete ‘newbies’ to the cooking world – something similar, yet totally unique.

    My daughter and I will be opening a restaurant called a Taste of New Orleans in Wilson NY in April or May of 2013. If the series goes that long please let us know. We are using family recipes from family that live in LaCombe La.

      Good luck to you! Sounds like a great restaurant. If it’s around again, we’ll post about it! :)

      Good luck to both of you in the opening! :) We’re not sure if there will be a second series. We guess if it’s very popular, they’ll create a second season. If we get info about that, we’ll let you know.
