Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives
(Food Network, 2007—) food and travel series
In episode S2E3, "Seaside Eats," host Guy Fieri stops in to Evelyn's Nanaquacket Drive-In in Tiverton to sample their fried clams, clam cakes, clear clam chowder, and lobster chow mein. "As wrong as it is," says Fieri about the last, "it's right."
During the last week of July 2009 Fieri visited Louis Restaurant, 286 Brook Street, Providence; Crazy Burger, 144 Boon Street, Narragansett, and Liberty Elm Diner, 777 Elmwood Avenue, Providence. If you want to go to any of these places and eat what Guy ate, check out Louis' barbecued chicken-and-cheese ravioli and granola pancakes; Crazy Burger's Pacific Rim spring rolls, Luna Sea Burger, and Whasuppy Burger; and Liberty Elm's fresh turkey sandwich with sprouts, jonnycakes, and coffee milk.
Louis' appears in episode S7E11, "Family Style," first aired on November 2, 2009. Crazy Burger is featured in episode S8E3, "Stacked, Stuffed and Loaded," first aired on January 18, 2010. Liberty Elm shows up in episode S8E8, "Comfort Food Classics," first aired on February 22, 2010.
Angelo's Civita Farnese (Braciola, sliced beef over pasta with a red sauce) and Mediterraneo (Spaghetti alle Vongole, linguine and clams) are featured in episode S15E6, "East Coast Comfort," first aired on September 24, 2012. Filming at these locations took place in early June of the same year.
S15E8, "Burgers, Noodles and Quahogs," (aired October 8, 2012) brings the platinum-coiffed commentator to Middletown and Anthony's Seafood, there to witness the creation of Anthony's chorizo stuffies and Kung Pao calimari.
The October 15, 2012, show (S15E9, "Handcrafted") featured Italian Corner Deli and Market in East Providence. Brasato, an Italian slow roasted beef sandwich with salsa Rossa, and a homemade tortelli Bolognese are presented.
Aunt Carrie's gets the Fieri treatment in the October 29, 2012, episode (S15E11, "Food Done Right"). Aunt Carrie's clamcakes and scratch-made strawberry shortcake are the real stars of the show. The excitable host practically creams his jean-shorts when he learns from owner Elsie Foy that the special clamcake flour is mixed in a cement mixer, and that the clamcakes are fried in beef shortening. "Whoh-ho!" he hoots. "That's why you rock this!"
Edgewood Cafe, 1864 Broad Street, Cranston is featured in S15E12, "Pubs and Grub," (aired November 5, 2012).
The Louis Restaurant and Crazy Burger segments are recycled in S23E07, "East Coast Cruisin'," (aired September 23, 2015).
