Unleash Your Inner Iron Chef at Bobby Flay’s $8M Chelsea Duplex

After a very public divorce from “Law & Order: SVU” star Stephanie March, famed chef and television personality Bobby Flay is unloading his duplex at the Chelsea Mercantile, which very appropriately has a Whole Foods in the building (you might remember Katie Holmes getting her own private entrance to the store when she lived here). As Curbed notes, the $7.95 million sprawling duplex’s listing touts its “spectacular open kitchen designed with and for a PROFESSIONAL CHEF.” Flay reportedly got the apartment, as well as the former couple’s Amangansett home, as part of the divorce settlement, but now it’s time for another chef to sharpen their knives in the pad.

The 3,204-square-foot, three-bedroom home was designed by MG & Company (who works with the chef on his restaurants) in an odd mix of gothic, industrial, and high-end contemporary decor. The bones and layout are quite attractive, especially the the open living space’s floor-to-ceiling wooden book shelf/entertainment center. Another fun detail is the exposed steel beam near the kitchen.

The kitchen most certainly is large, with an abundance of cabinet and counter space, two dishwashers, Viking appliances, and a walk-in pantry.

Off the kitchen is an office with enough space for two separate desk areas. There’s more built-in shelving here, and we spot Flay’s Emmy to the left (he’s actually won three of the awards).

Downstairs is a giant entertainment room that boasts a faux inlaid tin ceiling and built-in bar with zinc top from Paris.

Reports earlier in the year said Bobby Flay was house hunting in Tribeca, so perhaps now that his split is finalized he’s ready to make the move.
