Scheduled to open Sept. 9
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 10, 2016) — Food Network chef Guy Fieri will open a $1.5 million barbecue restaurant at Fourth Street Live in Louisville on Sept. 9, the Courier-Journal is reporting. The restaurant, Guy Fieri’s Smokehouse, will include a Smokehouse Burger with brisket, hand-formed patty, onion rings, thinly-sliced onion and pickle topped by a bun crowned with a skewered pork rind. Plates served up in a briefing included a sorghum-glazed pork chop, deep fried “pork wings,” a bucket of pork rinds, fried chicken brined in pickle juice, and a vegan plate of smoked sweet potato with Brussels sprouts.
Fieri, who has been a frequent visitor to the Kentucky Derby, has 25 Guy Burger Joints on nine Carnival Cruise ships and 16 more at concert venues throughout the country.
