San Diego Pizzeria To Be Featured On Guy Fieri's Quarantine Series "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives: Takeout" Edition

April 17, 2020

With restaurants across the country closed for dine-in due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Food Network personality Guy Fieri can no longer take to the road to visit his favorite eateries for Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.  To continue to produce content, Guy is having some familiar faces, including a popular San Diego pizzeria, come to his home kitchen on three special episodes of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives: Takeout.

Beginning on Friday, April 24, at 9pm, Guy Fieri will host four past Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives featured chefs from across the country via video-chat, to see how they are holding up, and how they have transformed their businesses to keep serving customers. Each chef has sent the full list of ingredients of their featured recipes straight to Guy's house and will guide him through each step to make the dish, just like when he is on the road and there in-person. But now, Guy will be virtually cooking along to prepare, plate, and taste each dynamite dish. Throughout the episodes, some of the most memorable Triple D alum will teach Guy new recipes that bring international cuisines into viewers' own homes. From chicken tamales, to paella fritters, and to European-style dumplings, takeout has never tasted this good. 

"Triple D has always been about hittin' the road and celebrating the hard workin' folks of the restaurant business," said Guy Fieri. "And while the restaurants are partially closed and the Camaro is parked, DDD: Takeout is here to show you how your favorite chefs are still cookin' it up to keep people fed, support their communities, their families, and their employees." 

San Diego's popular Pizzeria Luigi, which has locations in Golden Hill, North Park and Imperial Beach, has been featured on three episodes of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. First opened in 2004 by Italian-born Luigi Agostini, Pizzeria Luigi has come to be known as one of the top pizza restaurants in San Diego. All Pizzeria Luigi restaurants have remained closed since the San Diego stay-at-home order went into effect on March 17, 2020. Agostini will be featured on the third and final episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives: Takeout, airing on Friday, May 8, at 9pm.
