This is so not money.

The New York Times does not like Guy Fieri's new restaurant in Times Square.

In a painfully descriptive negative review of Guy's American Kitchen and Bar, food critic Pete Wells slams him for his voluminous menu, bad food and lack of service

The review is mainly composed of a string of rhetorical questions Wells asks Fieri. "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?" he asks. "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?"

"Hey, did you try that blue drink, the one that glows like nuclear waste? The watermelon margarita? Any idea why it tastes like some combination of radiator fluid and formaldehyde?

Wells, not surprisingly, gives the restaurant a "poor" rating. Read the full review here.

Fieri, who hosts Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, also owns the restaurants Johnny Garlic's and Tex Wasabi.
