Lots of big-name chefs are consulting on food gigs at Madison Square Garden, and now David Burke tells us he's close to signing a deal with the forthcoming Barclays Center in Brooklyn. "We have been in discussions, and we just have some things to iron out,'' Burke says. He explains that unlike his consulting situation with Bowlmor, this will me more hands-on: "I have an idea for baby mobile food trucks — gate 1A could be serving sliders at one point during a game, then gate 2B would have cupcakes."

He says he'd use social media or in-stadium announcements to let people know what food is being served at any given time: "We would have a few trucks, and they would drive by with items until they sell out." He adds, "The food might also be related to the team playing, like Philadelphia cheesesteaks.''
