Flay managed to impress the owner of the restaurant Joe Allen who even suggested that he would pay his tuition at the International Culinary Center, where Flay received a culinary arts degree.

After graduating from the culinary school, Bobby Flay took many job offers, none of which were as successful as the position of a chef in the “Mesa Grill” restaurant which he was offered later.
