Guy Fieri, the host of the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives," pulled up in his infamous red 1967 Chevy Camaro Super Sport and filmed a segment for his show at Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage located at 1246 Massachusetts Ave. in Harvard Square on Monday, July 27.
After the taping, Fieri, sporting his trademark blonde spikey hair and wearing a black bowling shirt and silver sunglasses, posed for a few photos with fans before zipping off toward Bow Street around 7 p.m.
Mr. Bartley's co-owner, Billy Bartley, tells the crowds waiting in line after taping the segment with Fieri: "This is a huge day for us, but it's back to business."
It's been a tumultuous year for the Harvard Square staple that has been serving up political slander and pop-culture worship along with its killer burgers since 1960.
A grease fire on Saturday, Sept. 20 forced the owners to close down shop for the first time in almost 50 years.The iconic Mass. Ave restaurant caught on fire after a buildup of grease in the grill's hood became combustible.
Bartley's is famous for spotlighting B-list celebs and politicos with tasty burgers named after folks like Dick "a heart beat away" Cheney, Arnold "this is no girly burger" Schwarzenegger and Al "they all lie" Franken.
Fieri taped a segment earlier in the day at Sam LaGrassa's, located at 44 Province St. in the Financial District, spotlighting the hot spot's killer selection of sandwiches and tasty lunchtime grub.
