Say Buh-by. Celebrity chef Guy Fieri’s Times Square restaurant, Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar, is closing December 31st. The Food Network star’s restaurant was popular with tourists, but not locals and was inevitably brought down by the horrendous quality of the food, as exemplified by a New York Time’s review, where food critic Peter Wells gave it a ZERO star review.
As posed as questions to Fieri, the review slaughtered the 500-seat diner with queries such as :
‘How, for example, did Rhode Island’s supremely unhealthy and awesomely good fried calamari -dressed with garlic butter and pickled hot peppers – end up in your restaurant as a plate of pale, unsalted squid rings next to a dish of sweet mayonnaise with a distant rumor of spice? ‘
