“For both, there was an instant attraction, yet instant danger signals. She was warned that he was a real bachelor, and he realized he met the woman he was going to give up bachelorhood for.”

She was invited by Bobby for a dinner date at Monkey Bar and soon began a relationship. Kate Connelly left a note for her babysitter that she would be away for 2 hours. But she recalled:
“I got home four and a half hours later. I’ve never had such a good time in my life on a date, ever, ever, ever. I don’t remember what I ate. There was always something to talk about. He was funny. It was the easiest thing in the world.”
A few months later, the two were engaged. The proposal was a casual one and Bobby handed her an engagement ring as lightly as he was handing her a cocktail. The marriage was conducted at the Bolo on 1 October 1995. There were 90 plus guests.
The wedding feast was replete with colorful Spanish-inspired and Southwestern dishes from the restaurant’s menus. When Bobby Flay was asked about his feelings on becoming a husband as well as a stepfather, he replied:
“It’s a complicated situation and the odds are against us, but that’s what’s great about it. If there’s no challenge, why do it?”
