“It really seemed like there was another agenda,” he says, which is fair enough since this has become the Internet’s most popular restaurant review since this one, but also the food is definitely garbage? Let’s call it a draw.
You gotta love a guy with a dyed beard and frosted hair accusing someone of being unprofessional.
best quote “supporters by the dozens took to Fieri’s facebook page…” So, like 25 people, max.
My husband read that review to me last night (which is kind of strange because usually I’m the more internetty of the two of us) and actually said “This guy seems like he’s trying to be over the top with this bad review.” But then neither of us doubted the basic truth of the review, which is that the food, atmosphere and service at that restaurant all suck balls in equal measure.
Also, the biggest problem I have with his restaurant (that I will never visit): “sandwiches, pastas and main courses, $16.95 to $31.50″
so, the cheapest sandwich of $17?! holy crap, who pays that much for a sandwich?
The reviewer is not lying about the fact that something at that restaurant is actually called “Donkey Sauce” right? So, I’m confused as to what this alleged agenda could be out for…
Outsiders who call NYers snooty have never taken public transportation.
“It’s a great way to make a name for yourself, to go after a celebrity chef who is not a New Yorker.”
Yep, that’s EXACTLY why he went after you, Guy, because you’re not a New Yorker.
That’s a load of Donkey Sauce.
The best comment I saw was “he looks like Smashmouth sounds”. Still laughing.
all of it sounded like completely valid criticism to me. he admits some things had potential and describes why some of the food was so terrible. he doesn’t go after Fieri’s personality, really – and even uses his TV show as context for what he assume’s Fieri’s “vision” is for the food.
I once heard Guy Fieri described as a “human cheese fry” and that’s really all that needs to be said about him.
How depressing must it be to be this Guy? Any celebrity who is entirely dependant on their image, most of the time an awful, inhumane image, like frosted hair and spikes and terrible goatee, depresses the hell out of me. They can’t change. They have to wake up every day and continue with the same image. Efffff. I mean, goddam. I usually dress much nicer than I have to for work, but if I couldn’t, when it fit my damned mood, wear a t-shirt and jeans because otherwise I would risk breaking my identity and disappointing desperate fans, I would loathe myself.
I would also be rich, however.
I mean, does the NYT restaurant critic need to make a name for himself? Does he, however, need to cool it with the rhetorical questions?
The real question here is how in the world did he start that thing where people think they have to pronounce his made-up name with a fake Euro-accent? The dude’s actual name is Guy Ferry. It’s quite a move to make up a TV name that includes pseudo-foreign pronunciation. Very Guy Fieri move.
Guy LeDouche flapping his fucking gums, great. Just accept you make the shittiest versions of the crappiest American food for shithead NYC tourists and move on, please.
