Fieri to open first Vegas restaurant at The Quad

Guy Fieri, host of Food Network’s popular show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” is set to open his first Las Vegas restaurant at The Quad in late 2013.

Fieri’s 7,000-square-foot restaurant will be located at the entrance to The Quad and is being developed as part of The Linq, Caesars Entertainment’s dining, retail and entertainment complex. The restaurant will feature a large outdoor patio area.

Fieri is no stranger to Las Vegas. He graduated from UNLV in 1990 and said he is looking forward to his homecoming.

“I remember the beginning of the food revolution in Las Vegas, in the early ’90s as a college student, and now I am finally opening my very own restaurant right in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. I am stoked.”

Fieri is the chef at six restaurants and is a New York Times best selling cookbook author. In 2006, Fieri premiered his first show, “Guy’s Big Bite” on Food Network. Today he not only hosts “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” but also guest judges on “Next Food Network Star” and collaborates with Rachael Ray in the star-studded competition series, “Rachael Vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-off” on Food Network.


It’s not that warm in Minnesota. I know this from spending half my life freezing in the northern part of the state. So 20 years ago, I decided to thaw out and traded in scarves and mittens for tank tops and flip-flops (Take that, polar vortex!). I swapped snow for 300 days of sun a year. I may not have been born here, but there are hotels that haven’t lasted in Vegas as long as I have. The Sands, Hacienda, Aladdin, Desert Inn and the Stardust too. I've been to my fair share of implosion parties. (Yeah, that’s a thing.) As a writer for, I've applauded hundreds of shows, explored every major hotel in town and raised a few glasses at most of the city's bars and clubs. Now I'm the resident foodie here. I write about all things dining — from $3.99 shrimp cocktail at the Golden Gate to the finest sushi at Nobu, and everything in between.
