Guy Fieri is known to most TV viewers as the louder-than-loud host of Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," cruising the country in a red '67 Chevy convertible and looking for spots serving good old-fashioned down-home food. But based on one major review of his latest restaurant, not even Fieri would park the car for a bite to eat.
Guy's American Kitchen & Bar opened in New York City's Times Square in September, and on Tuesday, the New York Times published its review. And unlike most restaurant reviews, this one is making serious waves.
The review, written by Times food critic Pete Wells, is a series of increasingly hostile questions directed at Fieri. It's one of those one-time-only critical stunts that grabs a lot of eyeballs, but rarely bodes well for the subject of the review.
And with questions such as, "Does this make it sound as if everything at Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar is inedible?" it's unclear how Fieri could possibly answer them with anything other than possibly a middle finger.
