Chef has been featured nationally on reality food competitions like Iron Chef America, where he lost by this much to fellow New Jersey chef Bobby Flay. Burke also competed on Top Chef Masters.

David Burke owns twelve restaurants in New York, New Jersey, Colorado, North Carolina, and Washington D.C.

You may be thinking, "what about Fromagerie in Rumson?"

David Burke had a near-decade-long run as the operator of the popular restaurant. After Chef left Fromagerie became Rumson House, which ended up closing in 2019.
