  • clutching at straws

    This episode felt a little forced, with Gordon clutching at straws to fault the food and it's presentation.



    Edited to add: RIP to owner Joseph Cerniglia
  • Gordon constructs a new menu with a succesful signature dish: Meatballs!, his team then gave the restaurant a homy feel. Sadly that night a few customers complained but Gordon wouldn't take any BS and told them off, quite rightly so. All ends well though.moreless

    Gordon visits an italian restaurant that's in trouble and faces shutting its doors for good. The staff lives in a dreamworld where they think it's all laughs and giggles, as long as they can have fun it's all good. They upset Chef Ramsay as he's waiting for over 20 mins for a soup, when they are all in the kitchen acting like careless teenagers, this just isn't good business. But in the end the new menu was a succes, as usual, and I can safely say that Chef Ramsay made a huge difference in this owner's life no doubt about it!moreless

    This was another solid episode of Kitchen Nightmares. This time Gordon went to NJ to an italian restaraunt that was owned and run by a group of young people. The owner had no idea how to run a business and the portion sizes were huge. Anyways, I thought it was funny how much the staff just played with each other. It was like high school. Some of the angry customers were just annoying; I loved how Gordon handled it and then the other random customer handled it later. Overall, nothing amazing about this episode, but it was still great and entertaining.moreless
