A restaurant from colorful chef and TV personality Guy Fieri will join the lineup of concepts opening at Texas Live.

Fieri joins previously announced anchor venues Rangers Republic, Live Arena, and Arlington Backyard within the $250 million world-class dining, entertainment, and hospitality district.

Fieri will launch a one-of-a-kind flagship restaurant concept for the project that will be developed specifically with Texas Live in mind. In a release, he says that it's "awesome" to be partnering with the Texas Rangers and the Cordish Companies to bring a restaurant concept to Arlington.

"The Cordish team and I recently opened a big-time concept at Fourth Street Live in Louisville, and to now bring that energy to Arlington and the great state of Texas is something really special to me," Fieri says in a release.

Arlington mayor Jeff Williams is also pleased.

"It is exciting to have a world-renowned chef like Guy Fieri involved in this project," he says. "He instantly delivers a brand and audience that will be a draw for Texas Live and Arlington’s Entertainment District."

We've had other Guy food: In 2015, a venue called Guy's Burger Joint, serving burgers and seasoned fries during concert events, opened at Gexa Pavilion.

Texas Live is a mixed-use development that will be situated between the Rangers' current home, Globe Life Park, and AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys. It's being built south of Randol Mill Road, between Legends Way and Nolan Ryan Expressway, adjacent to the location for the Rangers' planned new ballpark.

The dining and entertainment portion will open in the spring of 2018 with opening day, and the hotel/convention facility will open in the fall of 2018.
