Take it from Kathy Griffin, eat at Johnny Garlic's

Johnny Garlic's in Santa Rosa, CA got a nice shout out from Kathy Griffin on Twitter:

@KathyGriffin: Wow! If u want great food, do like I did & run to @chefguyfieri! Team G @ Johnny Garlic's...

While in Santa Rosa for a performance on Saturday, January 29, 2011 at the Wells Fargo Center, Kathy Griffin and her entourage were treated to a 10-course meal, served by Guy Fieri and his staff.

Johnny Garlic's currently has three locations: in Windsor, Santa Rosa and Roseville, CA. A fourth Johnny Garlic's, at Hacienda Crossing in Dublin, CA is under construction and scheduled to open in Spring, 2011.

A few of Johnny Garlic's unique dishes include:

The Grilled Onion Tortilla Stack, a Fieri Family Recipe. 12 layers of flour tortillas, with a mixture of caramelized onions, garlic and balsamic aioli. This dish was featured on the Sangria Shrimp episode of Guy's Big Bite.

The Hunters Creations are a rotation of exotic game and 'Off Da Hook' seafood, brought in daily and prepared by Johnny Garlic's culinary leaders.

Finish your meal with the mouth watering Breath Mint Pie (recipe), an Oreo cookie crust with junior mints tossed in mint chip ice cream. This dynamite dessert was seen on the Camp Cookoff episode of Dinner: Impossible with Robert Irvine.

Tex Wasabi's currently has two locations: in Sacramento and Santa Rosa, CA. The Santa Rosa location has been closed since the Fall of 2009, due to a broken water main that destroyed the floor. A series of difficulties with city building permits has delayed the remodel and construction process, but a recent update from Tex Wasabi's management states that the Tex Wasabi's in Santa Rosa is now under construction and slated for opening in early Spring 2011!

*Update* Tex Wasabi's in Santa Rosa is now open for business. Click here.

Featured at Tex Wasabi's:

The Bourbon Street Hurricane has Cruzan Estate Light Rum, orange and pineapple juice, grenadine and a float of Don Q Rum! This is a sure way to celebrate Mardi Gras without leaving town. To make a hurricane at home, try this one from the Guy's Big Easy episode of Guy Off the Hook.

Word on the street: a Guy Fieri signature restaurant will open in Las Vegas, NV sometime this year. More as we hear of it.


Also, tune-in to The CBS Early Show between 8:30 and 9:30 AM EST Monday morning, January 31, 2011, to watch Guy Fieri cook up some game day inspiration with RITZ Crackers.
