[QUOTE=mr drinky;157633]Well, that was a pleasurable read. I can't stand Fieri, his knives, or all of that jargon he uses.
With that said, in economics they say there is always a place for lower quality goods and even though Fieri bills his food as high quality, there are unfortunately a lot of people (even in my family) from rural middle America who would probably love to go to this place and also rave about it afterwards. When my brother-in-law claims that bloomin' onions from Applebee's are the best food ever and he only buys chairs with cupholders, you learn to accept this crap. A lot of people really enjoy bad food.]
True, but do they want to pay out the @$$ for it? He claims that he's doing old school americana, but he's charging for modern techniques, knowledge, and quality of ingredients. None of which appear to be being utilized in this establishment. I don't want to come off as some snotty chef, I gleefully eat McDonald's and boxed mac'n cheese. But I know what I'm paying for. This is just a means to exploit people who've been led to believe that this idiot is an actual chef, which will somehow excuse the exorbitant prices. 'The emperor has no clothes..."
