OT- Hilarious NYT Review of Guy Fieri's New Times Square Restaurant

    Irish, I don't think that anyone on here myself included would consider Guy Fieri a "culinary expert" and personally don't really care if he fits or doesn't fit that designation. What he is is a chef that hit the jackpot with The Food Network and is taking advantage of his new found fame. If you don't like him, fine but I don't think anyone on here has the ability to judge his culinary abilities if you haven't cooked with him. And stilllaughing just shared a quote from a restauranteur in NYC. It wasn't his "line of bs". Just don't know why there always seems to be so much anger on this board.
    No anger at all, it was his line of bs after he posted it.  If someone tells me that the sky is pink, and I come on a message board and state, "Oh ya, someone told me the sky is pink so there" it becomes my belief.  There is no anger except you jabronis getting bent out of shape because someone posted a NYTimes article ripping GF, in which you guys think we hate him because he is successful.  Get your facts straight

     - possibly because you met him once and feel the need to defend him.

  • I'm sure guy has enough going on that he's not too worried about a few knuckleheads on a forum poking fun at a restaurant review. He's a successful dude and he gets hit pretty good from SNL to reviewers, to media outlets. Hopefully he has a good sense of humor about it and is laughing all the way to the bank. I like to think I would be

  • I'm betting he's heartbroken, hanging around here night after night, waiting on the opportunity to make his first post. And this is what he sees.

    He can still post, but only if he uses his real picture, with shades on backwards - I would love to chat with him about cheese fries...

    Damn those New York critics for such an obviously smarmy review.  How rude.  Let's get 'em back by posting an equally scathing review on their Jets.  Here

    I can see him wringing his hands. Probably has written and deleted like 30 posts. man, I hope these guys who spend 16 hours a day on the internet accept me for who I am.

    Nola - you are obviously jealous of the Jets because they are financially successful, shame on you.
  • My point exactly. True artists are fragile souls and I, for one, think this is cruel and insensitive. I remember when this was a much more friendlier place.

    I actually met the Jets once and he was nice.  Was a chef at some point in his life.

    Seriously though, that review is so obviously over-the-top, I think it's meant to be humorous more than critical.  It's actually well on it's way to being internet meme.  Soon, it'll be on snopes - "is it real?", then SNL will be doing a skit on it - they'll probably bring back Dan Aykroid or Bill Murray to play the critic, John Belushi's brother to play Guy.  Mark my words!

    Anyway time for more martinis, preferably one that doesn't glow green like nuclear waste ;)

    Question, if I want peeps to brlieve I am a tre culinary expert should I always cross my arms. Not saying you would know, but if you did should I do this ? And should I bleach my hair and rock some arm tats? Little Steve, please don't leave me hanging on this.
  • Yes yes yes. And grab some tongs!
