Welcome to Cleveland, again, sir.

Guy Fieri, fresh off attending the Super Bowl with his merry Guy Fieri-esque entourage, is in Cleveland this week.

The Food Network star is in town filming at some local restaurants for one of his shows, the timing of which also means Fieri is in town for NBA All Star weekend, which probably isn't a coincidence.

A little birdie told Scene the mayor of Flavortown will be filming this week at Mabel's BBQ on East 4th St., and there's already been a sighting at Astoria, which casually announced yesterday that the restaurant would be closed today and tomorrow.



Neither Astoria nor Mabel's really falls into a diner, drive-in or dive category, so the tapings are likely bound for another Fieri franchise.

See the frosted-tipped good guy anywhere else? Go ahead and let us know, and in the meantime, if you haven't already, enjoy Guy getting emotional with some Phoebe Bridgers. (Update: A tipster says Fieri is also filming at the Rowley Inn and Good Company.)
