Guy Fieri Responds to New York Times Review

November 15, 2012 | By More

Guy Fieri has responded to the now viral scathing New York Times review by Pete Wells of his new Times Square restaurant, Guy’s American Bar and Grill.

The review is full of sarcastic morsels like:

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?

Somewhere within the yawning, three-level interior of Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar, is there a long refrigerated tunnel that servers have to pass through to make sure that the French fries, already limp and oil-sogged, are also served cold?

“He came in with a different agenda,” Fieri said, “It’s a great way to make a name for yourself, go after a celebrity chef who is not a New Yorker.”

Over on Yelp the reviews aren’t that great either. Fieri explains, “we’re trying as hard as we can to make it right, to do it right,” he said. “Is it perfect right now? No. Are we striving for it? Yeah.”

The restaurant has only been open for two months. Fieri recommends Wells check back in six.
