Happy birthday Guy Fieri! Today (January 22nd) is the 51st birthday for the chef who famously (or infamously, lol) wears flame-covered bowling shirts and sunglasses on the back of his spiky-haired head.

Since today is his birthday, it reminded me that he was just recently here in Lansing! Fieri made a series of stops at different local restaurants while he was here in Lansing for his show; Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. There was quite the buzz in the air when Fieri's Camaro was spotted covered up outside MEAT in Old Town. And it was so amazingly cool to see some Lansing favorites get some time in the national spot light!

While he was here, Fieri stopped at:

  • Zaytoon Mediterranean Restaurant
  • MEAT Southern Southern B.B.Q. & Carnivore Cuisine
  • Eastside Fish Fry
  • Capital City BBQ
  • The Cosmos
  • The Purple Carrot

All these Lansing favorites were featured on three different episodes of Triple D that aired on the Food Network that all aired in September 2018. To get a Triple D look at those restaurants, click here.
