Guy Fieri sure has a unique way of hyping up people about food. His energy is infectious. I loved watching him shine on Food Network Star Season 2 in 2006, and when he won, I was cheering him on like I knew him personally or something! Good times, ha!

I've located ten restaurants in Seattle that deserve some props, thanks to Fieri's show Diner's, Drive-Ins, and Dives. He stopped by The Emerald City and sampled mac and cheese, smoked chili verde, more chilli, breakfast omelets, duck l'orange, Nashville Hot chicken, Korean fried chicken, Caribbean-style aloo pies, gyros, and traditional Russian pastries. YUM!

Before we get to those restaurants we should take a quick pause and pour out one out for the restaurant homies that Guy Fieri featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives that are now permanently closed. 



The beloved neighborhood restaurant, Pizzeria Credo, closed in September 2023. Guy Fieri ate some of their wood-fired, Napoletano-style pizzas.
