Guy Fieri CRUSHED By Restaurant Critic, Slams NY Times "Agenda"

by at . Comments

Celebrity chef Guy Fieri's new restaurant was panned SO BADLY by the New York Times this week that he felt compelled to respond on the Today show.

Guy's American Kitchen and Bar has become the butt of many jokes online this week after food critic Pete Wells' instantly quoted, searing review.

Specifically, Wells called the food "inedible," "greasy" and "ruinous" with a "chaotic" atmosphere and a staff which "seems to realize this is not a real restaurant."

Ouch. In defense of his recipes and establishment, Fieri told Today's Savannah Guthrie:

"I just thought it was ridiculous. I've read reviews. There's good and there's bad in the restaurant business. That one went overboard. [Wells] came in with an agenda."

Why his agenda would be to slam Guy unfairly, he did not say.

"I've been in the restaurant business 25 years. Do we do it perfect? No. Do we strive to do it perfect? Yes. Do I think I've fallen short? By no means," Fieri added.

"[But] do we make mistakes? Absolutely."

The Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host, 44, conceded that people see him as a TV guy, but says he's really a chef. One person apparently does not agree.

Have you been to this or any of his restaurants? If so, tell us what you thought of it.
