Who was important enough to shut down a downtown Santa Rosa city block for almost two hours Monday?

Guy Fieri, that?s who.

The Santa Rosa restaurateur and Food Network star obtained a permit from the city to have Fourth Street between Mendocino Avenue and B Street closed Monday morning.

The application said Fieri was shooting photos for a new book, according to a city official.

The event took place outside Fieri?s Rock N? Roll Sushi restaurant on Fourth and included one of his trademark vintage cars.

Fieri paid $75 for the permit. Such applications are granted on a case-by-case basis, said Stephanie Acuna, an administrative assistant in the city manager?s office.
