Capitals fans, “get ready” because Guy Fieri it’s “come for you”.
On Thursday morning, Monumental Sports and Entertainment announced that the famed Food Network host will be bringing a restaurant to Capital One Arena. ‘Guy Fieri’s Downtown DC Kitchen + Bar’ is part of a recent expansion to the sports betting arena.
The news was announced by the Mayor of Flavortown himself in a video posted on social media.
The Caesars Sportsbook at @CapitalOneArena expands with 700 square feet of new betting space, 13 new kiosks and an all new arena entrance.

“Hey, folks, it’s Guy Fieri here,” he said. “I have good news for you. We have a new kitchen and bar in the DC area. What is it called? Wait for it. It’s true. It’s called “Guy Fieri’s Downtown DC Kitchen and Bar”, [at] the best sportsbook you’ll find on the east coast. Fingers in the nose. It’s Caesar’s Sportsbook at Capital One Arena.
“What do you get?” You are going to get homemade food. You are going to get killer cocktails. You will receive sports bets. You’re going to have Wizards basketball. You’re going to have Capitals hockey. You will have it all. Get ready DC. We come for you.
I can’t say I ever imagined in my wildest dreams Fieri saying the name of my favorite hockey team, yet here we are.
MSE added in a press release that Fieri’s Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheeseburger and its “legendary” Trash Can Nachos will be available. They are not Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich on a Cinnamon Rollbut I’m sure the calories will all be the same.
According to version:
Sports fans will soon enjoy an elevated dining experience with home-cooked dishes, signature and classic drinks, and a wide selection of beers and wines in addition to an industry-leading sports betting experience.
Along with new dishes, the menu will feature some of Fieri’s personal favorites, including the award-winning Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheeseburger and the legendary Trash Can Nachos. This is the second culinary partnership between Caesars Sportsbook and Fieri following the recent opening of Guy Fieri’s Downtown Phoenix Kitchen + Bar at Caesars Sportsbook at Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
So in the past 24 hours, not only have the Capitals revamped their goaltender, traded for a top-six forward, and given themselves hope for next season, but their home arena will also offer the opportunity to eat at Flavortown.
