(Updated at 3:55 p.m.) The “Mayor of Flavortown” made a stop on the H Street corridor today.

Food Network star Guy Fieri arrived at Toki Underground (1234 H St. NE) about 8:30 a.m. to film an episode of “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”

This morning, parking in front of the popular ramen restaurant owned by chef Erik Bruner-Yang was limited to police and the “Triple D” crew. About 7:45 a.m., the show’s iconic red Chevrolet Camaro convertible rumbled up to the eatery, driven by a man who wasn’t Fieri.

The Triple D host, wearing a hooded sweatshirt and shorts, arrived in another vehicle, entering Toki about 8:30 a.m. He reemerged in a plaid short-sleeve shirt and sunglasses to film near the convertible about 11 a.m. By 11:30 a.m., he was gone, whisked away in a black Cadillac Escalade.

Toki has stayed mum about the visit on social media, but tweeted it’s planning to open later today.

Neither Bruner-Yang nor a representative of the show would comment on Fieri’s visit to Toki.

After Toki, Fieri filmed at Bub and Pop’s (1815 M St. NW). Dozens of people gathered to watch the spiky-haired food fan enter the restaurant, reported Hill Now’s sibling publication, Borderstan.
