Guy Fieri to open 2 restaurants at new Live! Casino in South Philadelphia

Food Network personality Guy Fieri says he will open two “joints” — one specializing in tacos, the other in burgers — early next year at the new Philadelphia Live! Casino & Hotel coming together at Ninth Street and Packer Avenue in South Philadelphia.

“I call it a ‘joint' because what is a joint?” Fieri said, breaking into East Coast big-city dialect during a Zoom interview last week from his California home. “A joint is ‘Hey, what are you doin’? My buddy’s got this joint down the way.’” (Basically: casual, high-energy, loud.)

Philadelphia is “exactly the kind of environment we like to be in because it’s a bunch of people who love food, love going out, love entertaining, appreciate food, appreciate the energy behind food, the whole thing," Fieri said. "We’re excited. It’s going to be bigger than big.”

Cordish is billing the Fieri eateries as key venues at Live!'s 10th Street Market, which will include stands by Lorenzo & Sons Pizza, Sang Kee Noodle Bar & Kitchen, and Termini Bros. Bakery. There also will be a bar open 24/7.
