It's friggin Times Square. How does Fierri's shiatty tourist food any significantly worse than all the other chain restaurant franchises around it? If you eat on Times Square you know what you're getting into, for better or worse.

He's full of shiat. With 25 years experience, the place should be running damn near flawlessly after the first couple of weeks. Hell, it should be perfection right out the door, because shiat reviews for the opening days can sink a place.
 
2012-11-15 11:06:19 AM
Well, that makes one good review, I guess.

Full Stars!!! Highly Recommended!!! by owner

And if it's as bad as the review says, you're better off visiting the Sabrett stand.

In Guy's defense (ughhh, how did I even just type that), it is in New York, which means he probably has to hire a lot of New Yorkers.

That's not exactly what he says. It's more along the lines of "Yeah, we're sub-par, but we're working on it. I can't believe that we got everything wrong, though; the reviewer must have had a hidden agenda."
 
2012-11-15 11:08:16 AM
Looks like he needs Karl Welzein's help after all.
 
2012-11-15 11:08:17 AM
Did he answer any of the questions?

"To me, it's impossible to come in and have a dining experience and have every single thing is wrong, unless you come in with a different agenda and you want to sensationalize something and you want to blow it out of the water. It's a great way to make a name for yourself - go after a celebrity chef that's not a New Yorker that's doing big concept in his second month."

Ah. Go after the source, not the article.

If anyone knows about how you "sensationalize something," it's this douchebag.

shiat sandwich.

the reviewer also likely didn't give it a fair shake, most of us already have a low opionion of professional food taster guy, and likley would hold it to a "higher" standard so we could look for something wrong. the whole review was just a big look at me show

Thanks, Obama

First NYT shills for you leading up to the election, and now you're sending reviewers to badmouth Guy Fieri before he can testify about Benghazi. It's a coverup!

Mixed opinions on this. Irate Shadow nailed it...asking for more time screams amateur hour. Also, as someone who doesn't watch TV and has no idea who this Guy is, I have to admit he looks like a total douchecanoe.

OTOH there's no need for a review like that, and I felt that closing his rebuttal saying he stood by his team was the right thing to do.

Compared to everything else in Times Square, at least you get the quality you paid for at the Sabrett stand

I don't really care to eat at a celebrity chef's restaurant (Anthony Bourdain might be the exception because I am a fan of his) but I have learned some cool cooking ideas from Diner Drive Ins and Dives.

/learned the best way to make wings is to fry them first, then add sauce, then put them on the grill for a few minutes to let everything caramelize. After doing this, other ways of doing wings just won't cut it

Exactly. Which is why it's the only place on Times Square I will eat. TS is not the place for quality NYC food. Preaching to the choir, probably, but yeah...
 
2012-11-15 11:12:49 AM
It's the damn Liberal/Conservative (circle one) media. They are always out to slander those chubby douche nozzles with frosted tips who try too hard to be cool and than open a TGIFs in Times square. I mean, really, don't those libtards/Nazis (circle one) realize that the only four star restaurants in Times square is the ESPN Sportszone and Goofy Fieri is just pandering to the tourists who will shovel anything fried into their gaping pie holes? Man, I hate them.

I saw a couple of episodes of "the next food network star" and the VPs of FoodTV were always on the lookout for another Guy Fieri. They should strip the "Food" part out FoodTV.

Frankenstorm: shiat sandwich.


Au contraire mon frere, a portion of a shiat sandwich is edible.
A Guy Fieri concoction might be either wholly inedible or overpriced, to both.

Any any rate, hoity toity asses who pretend to be chefs on TV wouldn't last two days as a dishwasher/prep cook at a busy joint. And they couldn't figure out how to cook for a family of 6 on food stamps while a lot of people out there do.

Want to be a hot shot TV chef? Do a show that shows you how to get by in this economy and provide nutrition, and variety on a budget, asshole. (looking at you Bozos in Dodin Bouffants)

I prefer to smoke them first, then drop them in the fryer for a minute or so to crisp up. I might have gotten that from triple D myself.
