April 22, 2019 - Chef, restaurateur, author and TV host Guy Fieri announced he will open two restaurants in Hampton's Power Plant: Guy Fieri’s Pizza Parlor and Guy Fieri’s Dive & Taco Joint.
Both will be located between PBR Hampton and Bass Pro Shops. Both will open this June.
“I’ve always loved coming to Virginia to film 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives' and most recently, to open my Smokehouse down the road in Norfolk at the Waterside District. So, I’m really fired up to be opening two awesome concepts in Hampton,” said Fieri. “We’re bringin' my Dive & Taco Joint concept that people are loving in Kansas City, and then next door, we’re bringing a real deal, old school Pizza Parlor. You’re gonna dig it!"
Guy’s Dive & Taco Joint marries great food with an incredible bar scene and nightly entertainment. The design of the space will be inspired by the thousands of legendary restaurants, bars and dives that Fieri has visited around the country. Guy’s Dive & Taco Joint will offer signature tacos, Mexican classics, specialty margaritas and much more. Guy Fieri’s Pizza Parlor, the first of its kind, will pull from Guy’s strong Italian heritage and will offer a variety of artisanal pizza’s created by Fieri using house-made dough and sauce. Additional details about the food and drink menus will be shared at a later date.
"Guy Fieri is a pioneer of finding food that’s fabulous, fun and not fussy,” said Hampton Mayor Donnie Tuck. "That inspiration is a perfect fit for Hampton — in fact, such a good fit that we will be the site of two of his restaurants. We look forward to being the debut location for Guy Fieri’s Pizza Parlor, as well as the second location of Guy’s Dive & Taco Joint.”
“It is incredibly exciting for The Cordish Companies to make this announcement today with Guy Fieri,” said Reed Cordish, Principal of The Cordish Companies. “It’s an honor to grow our partnership and to bring two new premier dining and bar concepts to the Power Plant Hampton Roads.”
