While chef superstar Guy Fieri was cooking up his next kitchen reality series on the way to “Flavor Town,” or perhaps spiking up his frosted tips with French fry grease, someone came along and scooped up the domain name for his latest New York City restaurant and created a spoof menu online.
Fieri’s restaurant, “Guy’s American Kitchen and Bar,” can be found via Google under the domain name “guysamerican.com.”
Not very clever, we admit.
But that’s because New York programmer Bryan Mytko beat the celebrity chef to registering the actual name of his restaurant “GuysAmericanKitchenandBar.com,” which now displays some absurd menu options.
On the faux-menu page created by Mytko, hungry web-crawlers can expect to find dishes like “Football: The Meal,” a heaping helping of broken up, warm hamburgers, double-wrapped in plastic bags and “thrown at you from 40 yards.”
Or, for those more inclined to try something unusual, the fake-Fieri menu also has “deep fried snake with a printed out picture of David Lee Roth.”
The made up prices for each entree are as outrageous as the names and ingredients, too.
Same goes for the appetizers.
For example, on the gag menu, the “Hobo Lobo Bordello Slam Jam Appetizer,” which would run a pretend customer almost $50, is a mish-mash of “super-saddened, cheez-gutted wolf meat,” that is dipped in a honey pickle wasabi and pile-drived into an Ed Hardy-designed bucket.
Flavor Town, indeed!
But that’s not all. The appetizer is then, “sprayed with Axe and finished with a demi-glaze of thick and funky Mushroom Dribblins,” according to the menu.
Mytko’s Fieri-fun didn’t stop there, however. After BostInno broke the story and the site went viral, leading to it crashing several times after being picked up by national publications, Mytko and friends created an accompanying Twitter account and started rattling off other menu options.
This isn’t the first time Fieri has been under fire in the media.
Earlier this year, after a scathing (we are being polite, here) New York Times Food review that went viral, the TV chef was in the cooker.
In a series of questions, the New York Times food critic, Pete Wells, grilled nearly every aspect of Fieri’s Times Square spot.
If you want to take a look at the real menu to Fieri’s actual New York City restaurant, go here. There you will find “Guy-Talian Nachos” and “Ain’t No Thang But a Chicken Wing,” just some of the items that the New York Times poked fun at.
While the names are equally outrageous, don’t expect to find any beer-soaked t-shirt food items.
