Several months ago, rumors swirled that Guy Fieri and his red Camaro were in town visiting some Baltimore hotspots. Well, tonight we can hear what the spikey-haired host thought as Food Network airs a Diner, Drive-Ins, and Dives episode at 10 p.m. that features Sláinte Irish Pub and Restaurant in Fells Point.
Known for its English and Irish pub grub, as well as being an amazing setting for soccer games, Sláinte's highlights on the show will include its spicy gumbo (previously a Baltimore's best) as indicated by a Food Network tweet earlier.
While he was in town, Fieri also visited Johnny Rad's, Clementine, and Jimmy's Famous Seafood. That episode is airing on Nov. 21 with this Food Network description:
This trip, Guy’s hitting the pavement for a tasty tour of Baltimore. First, just off Dundalk Ave, the local legend cranking out all kinds of crab plates. Then in the Hamilton neighborhood, the farm-to-table spot cooking up bacon-wrapped meatloaf and Asian braised pork. And in the Upper Fells Point neighborhood, the funky pizza joint firing up some outta bounds pies and savory risotto balls.
Additionally, DDD (as it's become known) will pay homage to another local hotspot later in the month, including Swallow at the Hollow, a dive-bar institution in Belvedere Square. That episode will air Nov. 28 and staffers at the bar said they will throw a viewing party.
Of course, if you want a more immediate taste of Guy Fieri, you can head over to his restaurant in Horseshoe Casino. A full (and we mean filling) review will be in our upcoming December issue.
