Over the past two days, the now-infamous New York Times review of Guy Fieri's new 500 seat Times Square restaurant Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar caught fire across the Twittersphere, blogs, morning shows and even David Letterman's Top 10, but the boisterous, spike-coiffed chef remained uncharacteristically silent, until now.
Fieri said in a statement released by his PR reps:
Yesterday, we asked our readers, "Does a bad restaurant review in a high-profile publication sway your opinion?" Over 10,500 people weighed in. By the numbers:
– No, I'll go if I want to 39.68%
And commenters served up a hefty portion of opinion.
I'll take a double shot of nope, please
Please sir, may I have some more?
Maybe, if I still have room
I'll just stand on line
