Charm City, meet Flavor Town: celebrity chef Guy Fieri plans to set up shop in Baltimore. The restaurateur and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host announced plans for Guy Fieri’s Baltimore Kitchen & Bar, a 350-seat restaurant in the upcoming Horseshoe Casino. Both projects will open later this year.
Fieri’s no stranger to the gambler’s dining scene. Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar debuted in April, and an Atlantic City location is in the works. A release from the casino includes a few early details on the Baltimore spot. Guests can expect around-the-clock service, from breakfast to late-night, with twists on casual fare like wings (or in Fieri-ese, “ain’t no thing butta chicken wing”), burgers (“chilius maximus!”), and share plates (one can only hope for “won-tacos”). Drinkers can opt for eight varieties of shots served through a frozen tap system. The decor, including an outdoor patio, will be done up with repurposed wood and steel. Fieri’s many tattoos will play an inspirational design role in the coasters, napkins, and plate ware.
Fieri is a culinary icon is his own right, prompting everything from a Saturday Night Live Christmas special to the only New York Times review ever written exclusively in queries. Love him or question him, the Guy’s got enthusiasm. We’ll keep you updated on more details as they develop.
