Discovery-owned Food Network is plating a new series with celebrity chef Bobby Flay and his daughter Sophie that will see the pair hit the streets of New York City in search of delicious local dishes.

Produced by Bobby Flay’s Rock Shrimp Productions, The Flay List (6 x 30 minutes) sees the culinary mastermind visit his favorite hometown cookery spots, while Sophie introduces her dad to her latest finds.

Throughout the season, the father-daughter duo dig into an array of foods, including tacos and gelato at Chelsea Market; Sweet Chick in the Lower East Side; and ice cream at Morgenstern’s ice cream parlor. Bobby and Sophie also visit the Blue Room, a restaurant the famous chef worked at early in his career.

Other episodes feature stops at J.G. Melon for Bobby’s burger pick; Sophie’s choice of Detroit-style pizza at Emily, and a visit to Korea Town for some dessert at Grace Street Café, followed by a steak dinner at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse.

The Flay List is part of an exclusive, three-year agreement Bobby inked with Food Network this past December. The multi-year deal also includes the culinary competition series Beat Bobby Flay.

“Bobby’s background as an elite chef and restaurateur, having worked in New York City restaurants since he was a teenager, coupled with Sophie’s experiences growing up around the best chefs and food in the world, offers the audience a unique, up close and personal view into Bobby and Sophie’s favorite culinary destinations that are perfect for all generations,” said Food Network president Courtney White in a statement.

The Flay List premieres April 11 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on Food Network.
