Guy Fieri Restaurant Review
Thu, 11-15-2012 - 9:05am

After being fricasseed by The New York Times in a blistering restaurant review that a chef wouldn't wish upon his worst enemy, Guy Fieri says he's not canceling his subscription to the paper.

But the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host – the 10th highest-paid chef in the country – is not taking the Times attack by food critic Pete Wells lying down, either.

"I just thought it was ridiculous," Fieri said on Thursday's Today show, after flying all night to appear on the program to defend his 2-month-old Guy's American Kitchen & Bar in Times Square, the target of Wells's scathing attack.

"I've read reviews. There's good and there's bad in the restaurant business," Fieri said. "That one went overboard."

I've noticed this story all over lately so I had to go read the review for myself.  What do you think? Did it go overboard?

Overkill. The man went totally overboard with the review. He certainly may have had a bad dining experience but who hasn't had at least one total disappointment at their favorite restaurant? He needs to try again making sure he has a different server. The server can make all of the difference in a meal experience.
