Food Network star Guy Fieri, with his critically lambasted Times Square joint, isn’t the only one trying to capitalize off TV fame. The Associated Press reports that the popular cooking-instruction channel has opened a restaurant, the Food Network Kitchen, at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida. The eatery features “a black beans and rice burger with ‘mojo mayo’” (similar to Mr. Fieri’s garlic-mayo “Donkey Sauce,” perhaps?) for $12 and “fried pickles with Key lime mayo” for $6. Though the restaurant is bedecked with the Food Network logo, no word on what TV personalities–if any–inflected their distinct personalities on the FLL restaurant. (Doesn’t really seem like an Ina Garten joint.) The next Food Network Kitchen is to open at the busy Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta next year.
