Uniquely loud Food Network character Guy Fieri has been in town this week to shoot segments for his Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives show, according to Chowhound posters, numerous tipsters, Twitter chatter, and Zagat. He has reportedly visited a number of local spots, including Deep Ellum and/or Lone Star Taco Bar, Blunch, Trina's Starlite Lounge, Mike's City Diner, Cafe Polonia, and Saus.
Fieri himself confirms that he is in "Beantown" for the show, because of course the "mayor of Flavortown" would insist on calling Boston "Beantown."
And at least one fan is very, very excited:
Here's Fieri in front of Cafe Polonia, along with a note from an employee of the show, who describes himself as "a Senator in Flavortown."
Fieri has featured the Boston area on his show numerous times in the past, including restaurants like Cutty's in Brookline, Italian Express Pizzeria in East Boston, Boston Burger Company in Somerville, Gourmet Dumpling House in Chinatown, and Yankee Lobster in the Seaport.
