(The New York Times)   The NY Times reviews Guy Fieri's new restaurant and, well... "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?"   (nytimes.com) divider line 268

Anyone that walks into that place thinking it's not a money trap for middle-aged couples who DVR his show, then they are dumber than the Guy Fieri's persona.

Wouldn't the nature of playing this game through the internet make the game less challenging? Wouldn't having ample time to think of a response in the form of question, removed from the spontaneity of in-person participation reduce the skill required?

Rule 1 when eating in the TImes Square area: avoid theme/chain/celebrity restaurants at all costs.
Rule 2: See Rule 1

Seriously, walk just a block or two on any side street and you will find plenty of moderately priced, good restaurants.

Agreed. In my younger and more vulnerable years, my wife (then-girlfriend) and I ate at the Hard Rock Cafe, because why not? Sincerely average food that cost twice what a normal HRC cost (which is high to begin with).

The pizza we had across the water in North Bergen was absolutely fantastic, though.

Guy Fieri may be an enormous douche, but he's not an idiot. Open a restaurant in Times Square and wait for all the fat flyover tourist humps to flock through the doors and pile generic food into their mouths. The fact that people travel to this city and willingly restrict themselves to Times Square's overpriced garbage is amazing.

Christ, walk out past 8th avenue and even Restaurant Row has better options. It's only two blocks, it won't kill ya.

It tastes sweet, which is why it's used to poison people so often. True story.

And he put it in Times Square to collect rube tourist money, in case that was lost on anyone. Of course it's terrible, he only has to compete with the TGI Fridays.

Why anyone would travel to a food haven and plop their asses down at a TGI Fridays is more than I can comprehend.

The restriction to the tourist area isn't surprising. People continue to visit las vegas

Yeah, Guy didn't open this place for the elite New Yorker. Tourists have no idea where to go to eat, so they go to Times Square and pick something familiar. In a previous post, I explained how I fell victim to this once.

On my first trip to New York (I was 12 or so), my family ate at a McDonald's. We're from West Virginia. Tourists don't know any better.

I'm not sure Fieri does either. I'm not an expert on his show, but I think he pretty much just goes around to other peoples restaurants, watches them cook, try some food and tell them how awesome it is.

I used to work in TS and would get tourists almost every day asking for directions to the Olive Garden. You are in the middle of NYC. You are in Times Square... restaurant row is a 2 block walk from where you are. You want Italian food? We have that here. There are literally dozens of little, awesome bistros and cafes and restaurants lining both sides of the street and you are asking for directions to the all you can eat breadsticks?

It is a source of bewilderment to me that Buffalo Wild Wings has locations in Buffalo. It can't be for the tourist trade, because Buffalo has no tourists. And every local knows that even the local sub shop will have wings twice as good for less than half the price. How the hell do they stay in business?
