Recently, Guy Fieri has been in the spotlight, thanks to Pete Wells utterly destroying his new Times Square restaurant, Guy's American Kitchen, in a New York Times review. But this week, the restaurateur and Food Network host has been quietly filming six Valley restaurants for the 14th season of his popular show, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

2.) Curry Corner (Tempe)
3.) DeFalco's Italian Eatery (Scottsdale)
