Nachos by

To be honest, I had no idea who Guy Fieri was until a scathing review of his new Times Square restaurant appeared in the New York Times and went viral. The review contained such vitriol as

“Why did the toasted marshmallow taste like fish?”


“Has anyone ever told you that your high-wattage passion for no-collar American food makes you television’s answer to Calvin Trillin, if Mr. Trillin bleached his hair, drove a Camaro and drank Boozy Creamsicles?”

Note to self: look up this Calvin Trillin character.

All this begs the question – what bone did NY Times restaurant critic in resident, Pete Wells, have to pick with Guy Fieri that he wrote such a scathing review?

Perhaps more intriguingly, is all this just part of a big publicity stunt? After all, they do say that all publicity is good publicity and now everyone is talking about the new restaurant. Now if only I could get some reputable newspaper to do a review – scathing or otherwise – of my blog…
