As Guy Fieri, the host of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, pointed out, it’s impossible for a reviewer to hate EVERYTHING about a restaurant without an agenda. They gave Guy’s American Kitchen no star rating.
This little excerpt of the review by critic Pete Wells is dripping with agenda.
“Passion for ‘no-collar’ food” sort of gives away the crank’s bias, no?
I’ve never eaten there. Who knows? The food might have been terrible. But so is this critic’s nasty review. He obviously had a bug up his ass about Fieri’s style, and it influenced his critique. That’s not cool.
Ultimately, people vote with their feet, we don’t need critics that are intentionally vindictive.
For the record, he gave a positive review of the now closed Senor Frog’s, right down the street, and this is a place that was every bit the tourist trap, with a bar-like menu of pseudo Mexican dissent, alongside mozzarella sticks and buffalo wings. Unless you’re getting botulism, how is Fieri’s place that much inferior to bar food?
