Map of Throwdown with Bobby Flay competitors

One of my favourite food network shows is Throwdown with Bobby Flay where he goes around challenging various chefs to a cook-off with their signature dish. Seeing the show really makes me want to go and try out some of the dishes but unfortunately there is no single list of all the restaurants and their locations. Seeing that my last mashup map of the Dinners, Drive-Ins and Dives locations is the most popular page on my blog, I decided to put together a new mashup with the locations of all the Throwdown restaurants.

Update: Check out my new site FamousFood.us to easily find restaurants from Throwdown with Bobby Flay and other Food Network shows in a single place. Designed for both PC and mobile (iPhone, Android) use.

The map includes the name, address, phone number and URL of each restaurant along with the name of the chef, dish, winner and a link to the episode page on food network (contains recipes, etc…). It only includes proper restaurants and/or home delivery services and does NOT include the one-off challenges with local residents. Restaurant that have multiple locations are only mapped once and their URL will point to a list of their locations. As always this is purely a mashup and has no guarantees – use at your own risk.
