NY Times review of Guy Fieri's new restaurant

ouch.

LOL never really liked guy, too obnoxious and at times i have a feeling he doesnt know shit about good food. He just goes out and eats smoked meats and deep fried everything and describes the food with stupid ass words and thinks hes hot shit.

"You gotta eat here" with John Cattuci is 10x better than the shit show diners drive ins and dives.

He's a normal guy thats eating food anyone can eat and thats the whole point of the show. You don't have to be rich to eat where he goes and thats one of the with advantages. That being said it doesn't mean his resturant will be good.

That restaurant seats 500 people, I don't think it's suppose to be fine dining. Maybe the food is bad, but seems like the columnist has a personal vendetta against Fieri.

I hate Guy Fieri. Most obnoxious guy on the food channel.

Who wants some "Mac-daddy-roni"? Just call it goddamned macaroni.

This.

The whole point of the show is to show off local joints, you don't have to be a food connoisseur to do that. He's just flamboyant and rowdy, the type you'd expect to host a show primarily about greased up fatty foods.

Jimmy Fallon was talking about this on late night and so he gave out $25 dollar gift certificates to everyone in the audience to Guy's new restaurant a few nights ago, courtesy of Guy.

The article was written by the NY Times. Anybody who knows their target audience and political and social stance would not take it seriously.

That or the writer woke up half drunk and high off of the cocaine consumed off of a hooker's ass and had to brew up this shit show of a writing piece.

Short and sweet answer:

The NY Times caters to a wealthier white collar crowd. Not to the masses, which is what Guy Fieri's restaurant is all about. Also, take note of the overall writing style of the NY Times.

The writer was overall, being an unnecessary dick. He has his moments and makes his point as if the establishment is poisoning the New York restaurant scene but he went above and beyond to make this a mass murder. Next thing we know, he'll be reviewing McDonald's or The Hard Rock Cafe.

Seems like the writer had a huge chip on his shoulder, but I did enjoy the humor.

A little bit of bashing is expected for a food critic.

Anthony Bourdain has shown with "No Reservations" that it is totally possible to have a show that is nearly exclusively focused on eating at "hole in the wall" locations around the globe that is educational, interesting, and damn entertaining. Guy Fieri's show is a concept that should have never made it past a cocktail napkin in a bar.

100%agree! But I personally love Fieri, though I can see how aome may consider him too much. This is his TV personality. Loveit or hate it not everyone will agree.

I walked past the place and it was only about 1/4 full during dinner time.

Guess the word got out about how shitty it was

I think I would give Fieri more credit if he were an actual chef.

I agree Catucci is WAY better.

To be fair, everyone is panning Fieri's new restaurant, not just the NY Times.
