When Guy Fieri, the Food Network host with reviews as bold as his spiky bleached blond hair, pulls his red convertible up to your restaurant, you know you’re doing something right. On his show “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives,” the road taster showcased a Ravenswood seafood diner that carries sixteen different varieties of fresh fish every day. “First Catch” lunch fish specials at Glenn’s Diner have included a half-pound of pan-fried fish, (tilapia, perch, catfish or brook trout), roasted red potatoes, fresh veggies, soup and side salad. The rolled-back price, $13.95, reflects the place’s spirit. “We’re kind of old school,” says owner Glenn Fahlstrom.
