The scathing restaraunt review award goes to...

... This searing "shock and awe" attack on Guy Fieri's eatery. whether it's accurate or not, it is a napalm-imbedded bunker buster aimed at the establishment.

Did panic grip your soul as you stared into the whirling hypno wheel of the menu, where adjectives and nouns spin in a crazy vortex? When you saw the burger described as “Guy’s Pat LaFrieda custom blend, all-natural Creekstone Farm Black Angus beef patty, LTOP (lettuce, tomato, onion + pickle), SMC (super-melty-cheese) and a slathering of Donkey Sauce on garlic-buttered brioche,” did your mind touch the void for a minute?

The NYT review made the NBC Nightly News last night.

It was discussed on all the morning shows today, too. The Syracuse local news programs all did reports on it, as well, because Guy had just been in town this weekend for the premiere of an episode of his DD&D TV show featuring a great Syracuse Irish Pub, "Kitty Hoynes".

Based on the menu selections, reviews and the places he visits in the shows, you'd think he could have done a better job of menu items in his own place. It looks like he started off with some diner concept and gussied it into some fancy-assed nouveau cuisine stuff.

$17.50 for pulled pork sliders? ten bucks for french fries?

No Brooklyn Brewery beers? Gimme a break ...

Sounds like a tourist trap to me.

There's a Robert Irvine (Restaurant Impossible) restaurant in Hilton Head. We *almost* went to it. Maybe next time...

I find Guy to be the most annoying, sold out, uninteresting personally on the cooking TV circuit. I can't stand him. God bless him, I realize he appeals to many others, but he's just not my cup of tea. I like Alton Brown. I don't want to know who has the most hideously large burger, I want to know how to be a better cook!!!

Incidentally, my favorite kitchen show is America's Test Kitchens. It is a real, meaningful show. God forbid PBS loses more funding.
