COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA (September 30, 2022) – Restaurateur, chef, and author Guy Fieri is opening his first restaurant in Iowa at the Harrah’s Council Bluffs Hotel & Casino. Guy Fieri’s Council Bluffs Kitchen + Bar will be located across the Missouri River, just minutes from downtown Omaha. The restaurant will be a new concept from Fieri developed to enhance the existing popular outdoor entertainment venue, Stir Concert Cove.
Fieri’s restaurant will feature an outdoor patio and is sure to become one of the Omaha Metro’s main culinary attractions. At Council Bluffs Kitchen + Bar, Fieri will bring his signature American-style cuisine and robust, bold flavors to the Midwest for the first time. The menu will include his signature items, including his famous Trash Can Nachos and a hearty selection of signature sandwiches, burgers, and desserts.
“Guy Fieri is a culinary force, and we are thrilled to bring Guy Fieri’s Council Bluffs Kitchen + Bar to Harrah’s this spring,” said Thomas Roberts, General Manager of Harrah’s Council Bluffs Hotel & Casino. “Our guests have been watching Guy highlight the best in American cuisine for years, and we know they’ll love the opportunity to try Guy’s legendary flavors for themselves.”
Conveniently located next to Harrah’s outdoor venue, Stir Concert Cove, Guy Fieri’s Council Bluffs Kitchen + Bar will complement the renovations underway at Harrah’s, including upgraded exterior lighting and signage, landscaping, and more.
