Culinary rock star Guy Fieri to open a restaurant on the Strip.

You soon might see a candy apple red convertible parked outside The Quad Resort & Casino. That’s because Guy Fieri, host of Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, is planning to open his first Las Vegas restaurant there by year’s end, bringing his Flavortown menu of comfort food favorites to the Strip. The as yet unnamed 7,000-square-foot restaurant will be located next to Carnaval Court and contain patio seating. For UNLV grad Fieri, this is a homecoming. “I remember the beginning of the food revolution in Las Vegas, in the early nineties as a college student,” he says. “Now I am opening my very own restaurant right in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. I am stoked.”
