They Painted The Sign Black Over at Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar

Guy's American Kitchen & Bar

Is it a mourning gesture or something else? They painted the sign black after Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar, served its last meal New Year’s Eve and it was not cheap. The cost was $140 after fees, which gave you access to an open bar and a buffet. VIP packages ran as high as $800 per person and yet none of the famous food was prepared.

 Guy's American Kitchen & Bar

The restaurant which opened in 2012, was given a no-star review from Peter Wells of the New York Times. Fieri only licensed his name, rather than run the show. Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar was part of the Blue Stein Group, who owns the Heartland Brewery chain. The building was owned by the family of Fieri’s son-in-law and still had another ten years on its lease. Spending $1.8 million in yearly rent, the restaurant took in approxiamntely $16 million annually and was considered one of the most successful restaurants in America.

Fieri said in a statement that he was proud of the restaurant serving millions of patrons for over five years, and has not given a reason for its closure.

But the question is why the painting over of the sign?
