Guy Fieri's Spots In Massachusetts
Plymouth, MA
restaurants
The Blue-Eyed Crab Caribbean Grill & Rum Bar
Chef Jim Casey has dreamt up a menu that takes inspiration from the islands, as it’s loaded with seafood dishes that have a Caribbean twist (lobster and lump crab Creole, anyone?). The flavors of the tropics also shine through in Chef Casey’s assortment of next-level bar eats like the banana garlic chicken wings that Guy described as “a calypso band meets Metallica.”

Shuckers
Tucked away by the spot where the ferry leaves for Martha’s Vineyard, this harbor hideaway offers outdoor dining and fresh seafood dishes like the Baked Stuffed Scrod. For this dish, cod that’s been plucked straight from the bay is stuffed with a rich filling of lobster tail meat, cracker crumbs and melted butter. “It tastes bright and fresh and like the sea,” Guy enthused about the dish.

The Driftwood Publick House

Pickle Jar Kitchen
Not just the name of this restaurant is unusual -- its menu is chock-full of dishes totally unexpected in a beach town like Cape Cod. Instead of fried clams, you’ll find dishes like pulled pork with smoky cheddar sauce on a scallion scone. “It’s different, it’s refreshing, it’s creative,” Guy said when he stopped in on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

Dana's Kitchen
This quaint Cape Cod cafe is open year-round, serving up pastries, sandwiches and soups that made a fan out of Guy. “It’s just what I wanted when I pulled up — little cottage tucked away in the woods … grabbed some sausage and kale soup,” Guy declared. A menu favorite, the Portuguese kale soup combines homemade chicken stock with linguica sausage, kale, kidney beans, russets and plenty of hot sauce.

Kelly's Diner
Jay Holmes loved going to diners as a child, so he jumped at the chance to restore an old Delaware diner and transport it up to Somerville, Mass. Now it's rechristened Kelly's Diner and dishing out New England classics. Guy felt the lobster roll was just right: lots of lobster and not too much mayo.

Tupelo
When it comes to New Orleans-style cuisine, no one adds as much flair to their cooking as Chef Rembs Layman. The confit pork belly corn dogs with a side of pickled habanero and onions electrified Guy’s taste buds. Fans adore the shrimp and grits, gumbo and beer-batter crepes.

Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage
Mr. Bartley's Gourmet Burgers' success can be attributed to big flavors and a history of celebrity drop-ins, including Jacqueline Onassis, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. Guy barely fit his mouth over the Harvard (pronounced HAH-vud) Double Burger. As for the onion rings — eat those by the handful.

Casa Razdora
Nestled in the financial district of Boston, Casa Razdora is where locals go for real-deal Italian food. Guy recommends the porcini cascioni, which has an “outrageous” filling with sausage, gorgonzolaGorgonzola, button mushrooms, and porcini mushrooms. Another must-try is the rosettes, a ham-and-cheese pasta.

Trina's Starlite Lounge
Trina’s Starlite Lounge brings a Southern splash to the East Coast. Their best seller is the fried chicken and buttermilk waffles with hot pepper syrup. Don’t miss their homemade Tater Tots with rosemary garlic aioli and Parm. These soft and crunchy tots get Guy’s stamp of approval.

Saus Boston
Saus translates as “sauce” in Dutch, and that’s exactly what this Dutch-Greek joint is all about – condiments. Pick and choose from 20 sauces. Some standout dishes include the lemongrass chicken pocket with peanut sauce and what Guy calls the “over-the-top” Sloppy Jacques.

J.T. Farnham's
With a recipe dating back to 1956, JT Farnham's holds the key to delicious fried clams. By frying locally caught whole-belly clams to "just beyond canary yellow" it's amassed a huge fan base. For newcomers, try the Fisherman's Combo with everything from fish to fries and, of course, fried clams.

Greek Corner
At this authentic eatery, you're getting real Greek food made by two brothers who once left Greece to go to college and ended up serving their mother's recipes at Greek Corner instead. Enjoy a meat attack, just as Guy did with the "tetris of meat and lamb" in their layered meat gyro.

Morin's Hometown Bar & Grille
This Attleboro, Mass., landmark - currently in its third generation - has been making its French Meat Pies the same way for over 100 years. Try the French meat pie served with mashed potatoes and a gravy that’s got a hint of cinnamon and cloves, which Guy calls "the zip" in the dish.

Start your day with a tasty breakfast at the eclectic Little Depot Diner, an old lunch car turned diner, which once had wheels under the entire place. Try the Meatloaf and Eggs or French Canadian Creton, a pork and spice spread perfect for enjoying on crackers or with the curried Mulligatawny Soup.

The Lobster Shanty
At The Lobster Shanty, you can enjoy lobster pie, lobster mac 'n' cheese and even lobster risotto. But the signature Lobstertini has lobster fans -- and Guy -- taking a second look. With lemon, "lobster essence" and a lobster claw hanging on the rim, Guy calls it an "absolutely lobster martini."

Yankee Lobster
The lobster here is extra fresh especially because the water for the aquariums is pumped directly from the ocean. The lobster mac 'n' cheese Guy called "ridiculous," while the cod cakes tasted like the "perfect storm." Locals like the crab and other seafood-inspired dishes as well.

Angela's Cafe
Owner Luis Garcia and his mother are cooking up authentic bites from Puebla, Mexico, their hometown. Nothing here comes from a can including the tomatillo sauce for the chilaquiles verdes with chicken, which Guy absolutely adored.

Boston Burger Co-Boylston
At this burger stronghold, Chef Paul Malvone is grilling fresh handmade burgers 28 different ways. The Mac Attack, Guy's favorite, is piled with homemade mac 'n' cheese, bacon and a fresh 8 ounce patty. Locals love the Killer Bee with a stack of onion rings and the Pilgrim with cranberry mayo.

Patti's Pierogis
What is the Polish version of a ravioli called? A pierogi, of course! And as the name suggests, that’s what this place is all about. There’s a rotating menu of pierogis, with more than 103 varieties in owner Patti Geary’s repertoire. Guy couldn’t pass up the chance to tuck into the most-popular option, the cabbage and pork pierogi. “I’m in pierogi paradise,” Guy declared after biting into the buttery dumpling stuffed with a well-seasoned mixture of onions, ground pork, sauerkraut and cabbage.

Italian Express Pizzeria
At this eatery the food is fresh, handmade and inspired by nonni. The frutti di mare wowed Guy with its generous portions of mussels, shrimp and calamari on a bed of homemade fettuccine. Another standout is the tender, flaky haddock that comes slathered in a white wine sauce and flanked by a side of pan-roasted potatoes.

Cutty's
A husband-and-wife team could never find the perfect sandwich, so they started making their own and sharing them with the world. Guy couldn't get enough of the roast beef 1000 with crispy shallots and the pork fennel on a torta roll. Guy guarantees that all the sandwich are "out of bounds."
