Whenever I take a trip back to my hometown, I get the opportunity to watch good cable. I catch up on all of my favorite shows and spend hours upon hours watching The Food Network. I really like the program Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and am always amazed at how these chefs can make such interesting fare in such large quantities. I think the host, Guy Fieri, is pretty amazed, too. His larger-than-life personality always comes across—whether he’s visiting a diner in Texas or a barbecue joint in The Bronx. Of course, Mr. Fieri is a chef in his own right and you can check out his delectable delicacies on September 6 when Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar opens in Times Square. The crave-worthy menu features Guy’s signature bold flavors and creative spins on American dishes (make sure to try the pretzel chicken tenders). The three-story restaurant is also designed to reflect his big, bold American personality—complete with a Car Bar on the third floor. Definitely check out this new Times Square eatery, which promises a truly memorable dining experience. 220 W. 44th St. and Broadway, the restaurant is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
