Word has it that Fieri visited a few restaurants, including Whisk Gourmet, Latin House Burger & Taco Bar, The Federal Food Drink & Provisions, Blue Collar, and Sakaya Kitchen.
Latin House Burger & Taco Bar via Facebook Guy Fieri gets some mad love at Latin House Burger & Taco Bar.
Some people might scoff at the Food Network celebrity for his love of comfort food and brash ways (including the New York Times' Pete Wells, whose review of Guy's American Kitchen & Bar will go down in the history of food writing as the snarkiest piece of criticism), but there's no denying Fieri wields major influence on mainstream America -- you know, the people who actually go out to eat at the diners, drive-ins, and dives his TV show spotlights.
So when Sakaya Kitchen's Richard Hales got a call from producers to appear on the show, he was eager for the opportunity.
