If you’re a food enthusiast or a fan of the culinary world, you’ve probably heard the name Guy Fieri.
He’s not just a chef; he’s a culinary superstar known for his infectious personality, signature spiky hair, and his hit television shows. And now, Columbus is about to get a taste of Guy Fieri’s Flavortown with the opening of his new restaurant at 6000 S. High St. in Scioto Downs.
Before we dive into the details of this exciting restaurant opening, let’s get to know the man behind the flames – Guy Fieri himself. Born in Columbus in 1968, Guy Fieri’s journey in the culinary world has been nothing short of remarkable.
He gained fame through his Food Network shows, such as “Guy’s Big Bite” and “Guy’s Grocery Games,” but it was “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives” that truly propelled him into stardom. This show took viewers on a road trip across America, visiting local diners and eateries, showcasing their unique dishes, and sharing the heartwarming stories of the people behind the food.
In fact, Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives has filmed in Columbus several times through the years, featuring some of our most delicious eateries.
Fieri’s charisma, passion for food, and love for all things flavorful have made him a beloved figure in the food industry. His signature catchphrases like “flavortown” and “taking you to funkytown” have become synonymous with his brand, and his unique style has captured the hearts and taste buds of food lovers everywhere.
While Guy Fieri already had a presence here with his Flavortown Kitchen concept, which operated as a ghost kitchen pop-up, the exciting news is that Columbus will soon be home to a physical Guy Fieri restaurant. The location at 6000 S. High St. at Scioto Downs is set to become the newest addition to Fieri’s growing culinary empire.
Guy Fieri’s restaurant group currently boasts 17 different Fieri concepts across America, each with its own theme. From BBQ joints to taquerias, sandwich shops to pizza parlors, and chophouses to smokehouses, there’s something for every palate in his repertoire.
However, the mystery lies in what type of Fieri concept will take root in Scioto Downs. The city permits indicate that parts of the interior are being demolished and modified to accommodate this new concept, but specifics remain under wraps.
As of now, neither Scioto Downs nor Guy Fieri’s team has divulged details about the restaurant’s concept or its opening timeline. While we eagerly await the grand opening of Guy Fieri’s restaurant here in town, one thing is for sure – it’s going to be a flavor-packed adventure.
