Ready-set: Marlys: I don't know what donkey sauce is, but it sure doesn't sound like something that I want to put in my mouth.

It's what comes out when he taps that ass.


From the Food Network site. I like garlic, but 1/4 cup? Damn.

"Donkey" Sauce:

1 cup prepared mayonnaise
1/4 cup roasted garlic
1 teaspoon regular yellow mustard
4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
4 pinches ground black pepper

Mix the mayonnaise, roasted garlic, mustard, Worcestershire, salt and pepper together until smooth. Yield: about 1 cup.

Sure, but roasted garlic is much milder than raw garlic. I can see it working.

I've read bad reviews of his Johnny Garlic's restaurants, so it's not limited to just this NY restaurant.

Guy Fieri may have some actual cooking ability, but he has no desire to prove it, and is content giving the people the most generic product possible.

He's the Nickelback of food.

That was the best reply to a bad review, "yea we suck....but I find it hard to believe we suck that bad". Reminds me of the kitchen nightmares show where they will only admit to "an error here or there, nobody's perfect" while they have roaches on the walls and mold on the food.

CognaciousThunk: Welcome to Faker Town

Fake review removed from Yelp page

I posted the Yelp link in yesterday's thread. Also, here's the Urban Spoon link for the place.


Goddamn, I was looking at the reviews for Fieri's San Jose Johnny Garlic location, and the paid shill reviews are so obvious compared to the real ones.

Pro tip to paid internet reviewers: real users don't write like reviewers.

PsyLord: pacochu: ModernPrimitive01: 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


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.

That kinda makes me wonder why some of these places let Guy in? Sure it's good publicity, but the dude will probably rip your ideas after you show him how to make your best dishes.



He visited the Marietta Diner near Atlanta and the place went downhill just after that. The Diner used to be the go-to spot around here and now I hear many people complaining about it. It seems like the owners of the Diner borrowed from Fieri if anything, soon after throwing all sorts of overcomplicated crap on the menu - stuff made to look like it came out of a 4 Michelin star kitchen, with sauce drizzled artistically around the edge of the plate etc. All made from crap ingredients fresh off the Sysco truck. Even the old standbys (Egg Salad Sandwich) went to hell. And of course they have pictures of this douche all over the restaurant now, or at least the last time I was there.

GranoblasticMan: What?! Guy Fieri has no f*cking clue how to run a restaurant?! This is shocking!

/Almost as shocking as if you told me he has no real skills whatsoever


so his chain, "johnny garlic's" in northern california can be discounted?

what about tex wasabi's? the bbq sushi there is pretty good and refreshingly original from all the other sushi places around.

but go ahead, keep talking out of your arse.

FuryOfFirestorm: Icetech3: After what he did to sam roberts on O&A.. fark GUY... what a flaming piece of shiat...

Guy was doing a live cooking segment. Sam famously doesn't eat anything a 3 year old wouldn't eat (frozen pizza, chicken tenders, baby carrots = ok, steak = bad).

At some point, Sam got squirted in the mouth with what appeared to be water, but was actually vodka. Did I mention that Sam is also a vehement non-drinker, and potentially allergic to alcohol?

I didn't hear it live, but I thought it was pretty funny. I also don't have an abundance of tolerance for Sam anyway, so bear that in mind.

That Guy Fieri dish generator is pretty awesome.

But come to think of it, nothing sounds better with the word "donkey" added to it, especially if it's supposed to be a food item. Go ahead, try it.

Donkey Burger
Donkey Taco
Donkey Cheese
Donkey Steak
Donkey Cookie
Donkey Casserole
Donkey Fries

See?

GF recipe generator is fun.

Bacon-wrapped bison burger with roasted garlic Tobasco butter, $48.

That actually sounds kinda good. Oh, wait...

Cedar plank catfish mini-calzones with drunken monkey cornbread, $25 (comes with choice of soup or salad).

Never mind. And...

You-kill-it-we-grill-it pork nachos with Buffalo onion rings, $17 (lunch only).

Wonder if the you-kill-it-we-grill-it applies to entire pork sides. I'd go to Times Square to see that.

Peter Wells has been the Food Editor for a long time. I trust his opinion. Others have said the same about his restaurant.

Guy Fieri looks like a bar tender from 1998. As for the success or failure of his Times Square restaurant, I don't care either way. I'm not gonna go. But he seemed to take the criticism to heart when he appeared on television today, and maybe he'll make some positive changes. On the other hand, the original review was hate filled and difficult to read without becoming annoyed at its author. So I think I have to side with Fieri on this one.
 
2012-11-15 04:46:14 PM  
Via the generator: "Hong Kong meatloaf bites with drunken monkey Texas toast, $19."

Muy delicioso, I'm sure.

That said, as a short order cook in a VERY busy small-town diner where everything is made from scratch and you are expected to do everything including double as dishwasher while making sure that three burgers (one rare one medium-well one hockey puck, two with cheese, one swiss; one with sauteed mushrooms, the others hold the onions; one with fries extra crispy add beef gravy), two chef salads (hold the peppers, extra radish, no roast beef on one, dressing on the side), two orders of broiled fish (one drain the butter, one mashed, one baked potato, turkey gravy on side) and three orders of macaroni and cheese, one grilled, one crispy (i.e. scrape out the corners of the pan) -- all come out at the exact same time. No heat lamps, no nothin'. No one else in that little kitchen except you. Oh, and the beef gravy's low, the mashed potatoes are running out, and you're out of sliced tomatoes. And here comes the waitress with three more tickets.

-- I would LOVE to watch Guy do my job, just for one day.

My wife buys Food Network Magazine sometimes where they'll talk about a specific kind of food and all the famous restaurants that serve it. Some restaurants will give out recipes but the ones that don't, will have their recipes "recreated by food network's chefs" and still included. My wife stop buying their magazine when there was an entire section on BBQ sauces where the food network recreated and released all the recipes of these famous mom and pop BBQ places. That is their bread and butter and Food Network gave out their secrets just to sell a few more issues. It made me sick..........then hungry...........but thinking back on it I'm sick again

Oh, I'm sure he could handle it. I never said he couldn't. I'd just love to watch him "handle" it with those ridiculous sunglasses on the back of his head and a neck dripping with gold chains (and without a cadre of assistants, to which I'm sure he's become accustomed).

/one of the first things my father (a culinary school instructor) taught me -- no jewelry in the kitchen. NONE. EVER. I still adhere to that rule.

From the Food Network site. I like garlic, but 1/4 cup? Damn.

"Donkey" Sauce:

1 cup prepared mayonnaise
1/4 cup roasted garlic
1 teaspoon regular yellow mustard
4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
4 pinches ground black pepper

Mix the mayonnaise, roasted garlic, mustard, Worcestershire, salt and pepper together until smooth. Yield: about 1 cup.


Well, it's a cut above Paula Dean's English peas, but not by much.

I have dined at a few of Bobby Flay's restaurants, and have never had anything but an exceptional experience. Mesa Grill (Nassau) and Bar Americain (NYC) and have never ever been disappointed, until we got the bill, that is. After these two outstanding experiences, when I hear he owns a place, I will be sure to give it a try.
