Fieri Is Fiery Over New York Times Review

Guy Fieri, who appraises Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on his Food Network show, in which he cruises the country for so-called comfort food, is taking no comfort at all from a New York Times review of his own new restaurant, the American Kitchen & Bar in New York's Times Square. In the review, restaurant critic Pete Wells puts a series of cutting rhetorical questions aimed at Fieri, leading the Los Angeles Times to remark, It's unclear how Fieri could possibly answer them with anything other than possibly a middle finger. Among them: When you hung that sign by the entrance that says, WELCOME TO FLAVOR TOWN!, were you just messing with our heads? * Why did the toasted marshmallow taste like fish? * Is the entire restaurant a very expensive piece of conceptual art? Is the shapeless, structureless baked alaska that droops and slumps and collapses while you eat it, or don't eat it, supposed to be a representation in sugar and eggs of the experience of going insane? Fieri was not amused, telling the Hollywood Reporter: I just thought it was ridiculous. I mean, I've read reviews -- there's good and there's bad in the restaurant business. But that to me went so overboard, it really seemed like there was an agenda.
