Doesn’t it feel like eons ago when celebrity chef Guy Fieri was seen cruising around Wilmington in his red Chevy Camaro SS, filming his latest season of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives"? Now on season 30, the popular Food Network show is finally broadcasting the episodes that were filmed when Fieri was in town back in February. And the cool thing is, all of the restaurant visits aren’t jammed into one 30-minute episode.
On Friday, May 24, if you weren’t stuck in traffic heading to the beach, you may have caught the episode titled "A World of Barbecue." On it he featured some restaurants in California and Hawaii, but it ended with a trip to Locale BBQ Post, a cozy eatery located on the outskirts of Little Italy. There, chef and owner Dan Sheridan made the restaurant’s famous chicken salad sandwich and its meaty smokehouse chili.
Sheridan is also one of the owners Stitch House Brewery, located in downtown Wilmington.
The next episode of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" will air Friday, May 31 (and Saturday, June 1 at midnight for you night owls). This episode, titled "Sausage, Shawarma and Scaloppini" features Fieri starting at a “funky little Italian joint in Wilmington, Del., serving outrageous arancini and veal scaloppini.” This can only mean one thing: Luigi Vitrone’s Pastabilities. But, word on the street has it that Fieri did also visit Mrs. Robino’s when he was in town.
Set your DVR for episode four, "British, Hawaiian and Mexican," which airs Friday, June 14 at 9 p.m. (and June 15 at midnight). The show will feature Fieri’s trip to Stoney’s Pub on 202, the quaint British tavern known for its authentic and hearty grub.
