Bobby Flay’s Chelsea duplex apparently wasn’t selling fast enough for his taste.

Now, the restaurateur and TV star is looking to rent his 3,200-square-foot unit at Rockrose Development’s Chelsea Mercantile at 252 Seventh Avenue, asking $22,500 a month.

Flay put the three-bedroom duplex three-bedroom, which features an impressive chef’s kitchen, as one might expect, up for sale back in October, when the asking price was $8 million.

The chef lived there with his ex-wife Stephanie March, with whom he recently divorced, possibly explaining his eagerness to leave the unit.

Meris and Kenny Blumstein of the Corcoran Group are marketing both the rental and sales listings, the latter along with their daughter Sydney, the New York Post reported. [NYP]Ariel Stulberg
