Guy Fieri's NY Restaurant Gets Horrible Rating in The New York Times Review

Guys American Kitchen and Bar Reviews
When Guy Fieri's restaurant opened back in September, I wrote about its obnoxious menu, and ever since then, new bad reviews and bad press seem to be coming in daily about Guy's American Kitchen and Bar.  It currently has 2.5 stars on Yelp, Anthony Bourdain has ripped his restaurant multiple times, and the NY Post gave it a terrible review back in October.

The latest review from Pete Wells in The New York Times really lays into Guy and his Times Square restaurant.  Pete seems to have taken some pointers from Ina Garten, and wrote the whole review using countless rhetorical questions.  Some of them include:
  • "Did panic grip your soul as you stared into the whirling hypno wheel of the menu, where adjectives and nouns spin in a crazy vortex?"
  • "Hey, did you try that blue drink, the one that glows like nuclear waste? The watermelon margarita? Any idea why it tastes like some combination of radiator fluid and formaldehyde?"
  • "What exactly about a small salad with four or five miniature croutons makes Guy’s Famous Big Bite Caesar (a) big (b) famous or (c) Guy’s, in any meaningful sense?" 
  • "How did nachos, one of the hardest dishes in the American canon to mess up, turn out so deeply unlovable?"
  • "And when we hear the words Donkey Sauce, which part of the donkey are we supposed to think about?" 
  • "Why did the toasted marshmallow taste like fish" 
It is a pretty brutal review that gives Guy's restaurant a Poor rating and 0 out of 4 stars.  To read the full review, check out this link to the NY Times.
