You may know Fieri from his Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives–or from the famously bad review his Times Square restaurant got in the New York Times. He’s also the man behind the flagship restaurant at Baltimore’s just-opened Horseshoe Casino.
The obvious selling point of Fieri’s new restaurant is Fieri himself. Maybe that’s why they named the place (no kidding) “Guy Fieri’s Baltimore Kitchen & Bar.” At GFBK&B you can get Guy Fries, Guy-Carb Dippers and Guy-Talian Deli Salad, as well as a host of other menu items that you may be too embarrassed to say out loud (The Off-Da-Hook Original Burger; Brutha’s Badass Caes-Uh Salad; Righteous Rojo Rings).
Fieri has been promoting the restaurant by giving interviews about how much he loves Baltimore. Here’s what Fieri appreciates about us, according to a recent Daily Record interview:
+We’re “so crab-centric”
+Our blue crabs are “outrageous”
+We’ve got great sports teams
+We have “real crab cakes”
In other words, Fieri’s impression of Baltimore is about as deep as a one-page promotional brochure. It doesn’t seem like Fieri will be revamping his reputation as the nation’s resident foodiot anytime soon.
