Bobby’s Burger Palace Opens in Dadeland Mall 

Chef and restaurateur Bobby Flay brings his passion for burgers, fries, and shakes to Miami with the opening of Bobby’s Burger Palace (BBP), his very first restaurant in the “Sunshine state.” Located in Miami’s Dadeland Mall, Bobby’s Burger Palace is anchored on the second floor of the mall’s highly-anticipated redeveloped two-story wing. BBP Miami is also the very first store, among the impressive list of 22 retailers and restaurants, to open in the new wing. BBP Miami offers an assortment of burgers inspired by Bobby’s extensive travels throughout America, including Miami. One of BBP’s signature burgers is the Cuban sandwich-inspired Miami Burger, which is pressed with ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, mustard and mayonnaise.
