Root for Brad Farmerie on the Next Iron Chef!!!!

The Food Network's new season of "The Next Iron Chef" series premiered this past Sunday, and this time around a local Columbia Waterfront resident is one of the challengers!!!

Check out his introduction video here: recently ran an article on Farmerie and the two other Brooklyn residents that are featured on the show (we always knew Brooklyn had some real food talent!). The article says:

“Any chef would want to be ‘The Next Iron Chef.’ It’s one of those big-time honors,” said Brad Farmerie, who lives in the Columbia Street Waterfront District. Farmerie is the executive chef of PUBLIC and The Monday Room (210 Elizabeth Street, 212-343-7011, and Double Crown (316 Bowery, 212-254-0350,

Farmerie loves the Australian meat pies at Down Under Bakery (DUB) Pies on Columbia Street and plans to use veggies from the Red Hook CSA in his restaurants’ menus. “They’re probably the best eggplants I ever tasted,” he said.....

“Brooklyn is a great place to live,” Farmerie added. “I’ve got a son who is 16 months old who gets to run around and play over here. It’s a lifestyle. I wouldn’t trade it.”
