GUY’S AMERICAN KITCHEN & BAR Guy Fieri, the Food Network star, is jumping into the New York restaurant scene big time. No fewer than 500 seats will be available for fans who hunger for his sangria-glazed shrimp. Mr. Fieri’s partner in this $8 million, 16,000-square-foot enterprise is Jon Bloostein of the Heartland Brewery empire, so there will be special beers. The restaurant, on three levels of the former New York Times building, has an open kitchen fitted with rotisseries and a chandelier from which the chef’s old pots and pans dangle. Mr. Fieri, a native of California, where he has a chain of Johnny Garlic restaurants, sees New York as the “Super Bowl of food.” He said he puts “twists on the classics,” adding, “I like to hit those onion rings with sriracha.” (Sept. 6): 220 West 44th Street, (646) 532-4897.
