Local restaurants get national attention, shine spotlight on Lansing


A few local restaurants are getting some national recognition, shining a spotlight on the food industry in Lansing. 

Last year celebrity Chef, Guy Fieri visited several restaurants in the Capital City filming for his show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”

Tomorrow night’s episode will feature The Cosmos restaurant in Old Town Lansing where he will help cook up Nick’s Cosmic Meatball pizza.

The episode’s description writes: 

“On this trip, Guy Fieri’s digging into all kinds of killer grub. In Lansing, Mich., an out-of-this-world pizza joint where the pie comes with a surprise.”

Restaurant owners say Fieri enjoyed his visit and left some autographed items to decorate the restaurant.

The premise of the show is that Fieri travels the country to find well-known but out of the way eating establishments.

The episode featuring The Cosmos will air Friday night at 9pm on The Food Network.

Directly after that, an episode featuring Capital City BBQ and Zaytoons Mediterranean will air.
