Guy Fieri didn’t buy the domain name to his restaurant. But someone else did.

And they created a fake menu to boot


From the fake Guys American Kitchen & Bar menu

When celebrity TV host and restaurateur Guy Fieri opened up his restaurant, Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar, in Times Square late last year, the domain name of guysamerican.com was registered for the new eatery.

That might have been because someone else had already purchased the domain of guysamericankitchenandbar.com.  And whoever made the domain purchase has also created a fake Guy Fieri-inspired menu.

On the fake Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar menu you can order Guys Big Balls–“two 4-pound Rice-A-Roni crusted mozzarella balls endangered with shaved lamb and pork and blasted ith Guy’s signature Cadillac Cream sauce until dropping off the plate” for $26.95.

On the real Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar menu you can order the Big Bite Burger and Rojo Ring–“Pat Lafrieda all natural Black Angus Beef, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle, super-melty cheese and a slathering of Donkey sauce on garlic-butter brioche” for $17.50

The real Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar menu was on the receiving end of a scathing restaurant review from the New York Times in November, 2012, which went viral and prompted the real Guy Fieri–the host of Diners Drive-Ins and Divesto appear on NBC’s Today where he defended his food and suggested that New York Times restaurant review Pete Wells had an agenda.
