The NYT printed one beat-down of a review for Guy Fieri's new restaurant in Times Square. Here is a sampling:
"Did you notice that the menu was an unreliable predictor of what actually came to the table?"
"How did nachos, one of the hardest dishes in the American canon to mess up, turn out so deeply unlovable?"
"Why did the toasted marshmallow taste like fish?
I gagged while reading this review. I thought Guy had a respect for food that has integrity; even if it is a pulled-pork sandwich. He seems to celebrate good-quality food on his show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.
Well, the place has a gift shop and is in the right location for the tourists that think Red Lobster and Applebee's is fine dining. It will make some cute coin for about a year and close up shop.
Hey, ya remember when Emeril Lagasse was the man?
The Village Voice found some more shade thrown at the restaurant. I have to wonder if Guy was even there for the first few weeks.
