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.

You can also view a larger map (with list) or use this link for a Google Earth version. Also I spent a lot of time converting the data into machine readable CSV – if any other hackers out there would like to play with the data just leave a comment and I’ll be happy to send you the data.

  1. I was slowly going thru the episodes on foodnetwork when I came accross your information. Do you mind if I use your information to build a gpx file to share with others? It will save me from re-watching each episode.

  2. This is an awesome site! My husband and I are doing a 3 day weekend in NY city at the end of the month and are planning to do a culinary tour of the city. We were hoping to find a compilation just like this. I would love the data or directions on how to create a list so we can filter by NY city. Thoughts? Thanks so much!

    You can just use the zoom and pan funtions on the map to get to the location you are interested in (NYC). Once there you can just click on each restaurant marker to get the address, phone # etc…

  4. You are AWESOME! Thank you so much for creating this helpful page! I love the list of all the locations on the larger Google Map. This is exactly what I was looking for, for an upcoming trip to another state. I am going to “tweet” about this page to my Twitter people to get the good word out there. Thanks again for doing this work – we foodies appreciate it! :)

  5. I wish to have throwdown cooking “Chili” with Mr. Flay! I am undefeated in Columbia Missouri(100,000 population)………6 wins in 6 years. I have the best and I create it with steak, thus calling it………Stili!
