We Try Guy's American Kitchen and Bar, Guy Fieri's New Times Square Restaurant

Every restaurant exists in context, of neighborhood and price, of cuisine and competitors. Guy's American Kitchen and Bar—the massive big-box restaurant that Food Network star Guy Fieri opened last week in Times Square? No one expects it to be good, per se. The questions you're answering: would a tourist wandering in after a Broadway show have a better meal than he would elsewhere in the neighborhood? Would a Food Network fan visiting from out of town enjoy her Slammin' Jammin' Chicken Parm? Basically—is Guy's American Kitchen and Bar better than the Cheesecake Factory? More

2012 SoBe Burger Bash Winners: Michael Symon, Whisk, and Guy Fieri

Congratulations to Michael Symon of Cleveland's B Spot for winning the People's Choice Award at last Friday's South Beach Wine and Food Festival Burger Bash for the third year in a row. This year he made the Porky Burger, a pork and bacon burger topped with pulled pork and coleslaw. Last year he won for his Yo! Burger topped with fried salami, provolone cheese, shasha sauce, and pickled onion; the year before he won for his Fat Doug burger topped with Swiss, pastrami, and coleslaw. More

Big Bud's Beer Can Chicken 

Big Bud's Beer Can Chicken is Fieri's version of beer can chicken, named for his preferred brew for this recipe, all-American Budweiser. The bird is rubbed with a spiced (but not very spicy) blend of oregano, ginger, onion and garlic powder, paprika, and sage, and then set atop a can of Bud popped with a few cloves of garlic. The chicken is placed vertically in the pan and draped with slices of bacon. Since the cooking happens upright, the grease from the bacon drips down the chicken during the cooking, basting it with all of its salty smokiness. More

Bring It On Beef Brisket

Fieri's brisket is seared and slowly braised with his homemade chili sauce that ends up being more like a tart, cooked salsa than that sweet jarred stuff. A pile of leeks, carrots, celery, and onion is placed over the brisket and cooked down to nearly melting. Once the brisket is pull-apart tender the sauce is skimmed and blended with the melted veggies, making a fresh, tangy, tomatoey gravy for a brisket so juicy it could easily be served on its own. In other words, bring it on! More

Cook the Book: Chicken Lettuce Cups

I was determined to include at least one recipe from Guy Fieri Food that could be construed as vaguely healthy (not that the word "healthy" is in Fieri's vernacular). Our healthy Guy Fieri-approved recipe this week comes in the form of these Chicken Lettuce Cups. Full of diced veggies and Asian-inspired ingredients, these lettuce cups are a big crowdpleaser with caramel-y bites of chicken and crushed, fried wonton skins wrapped up in a crisp leaf of iceberg.

How Do You Eat Messy Foods?

How exactly are you supposed to eat this again? [Photograph: Josh Bousel] In an interview with The Seattle Times, Guy Fieri talks about his strategy for eating squirting-all-over-the-place foods. With messy food, or foods with a lot of sauce, you do "The Hunch." I learned it in Philly, watching the dudes in suits eat cheesesteaks. You keep your elbows above your hands because if you don't, the grease runs down your sleeve to your elbow. [Oh, and by the way] Contrary to popular belief, I eat all types of food. Fried food is my least favorite. Me, I'm thankful I don't have a beard. That sounds even more stressful (and probably not a good look for me). I try... More

Guy Fieri Doesn't Eat at T.G.I. Friday's

Friday's spokesman Guy Fieri and a TMZ cameraman: TMZ: “I thought you only eat at Friday’s.” Fieri: “No, I’m a Food Network chef, man, so I just do commercials for Friday’s. You know how it is.” TMZ: “You like Friday’s?” Fieri: “It’s a good gig.” TMZ: “Good there?” Fieri: “They back up one of my shows, called Ultimate Recipe Showdown.” [via Food Network Addict]... More

If you're planning a Super Bowl party completely from scratch and don't know where to start, the Food Network's put together a comprehensive Football Party mini site: their slightly fancy Ultimate Super Bowl Menu featuring recipes from Food Network stars (I like the look of Tyler Florence's Teriyaki Chicken Wings), lots of options for standard football party eats like nachos and chili, and football party tips from Guy Fieri....
