Their lack of experience and refusal to open for lunch have driven away all the customers. Can Gordon turn this money pit into a gold mine?moreless

  • Between an apathetic owner and a crazed head chef, Gordon Ramsay met his greatest challenge in turning around a vegetarian cafe in Paris.

    8.0
    As a saw this episode, I reminded myself of the very first episode involving Bonaparte's. This was to compare both places in terms of how they failed miserably. In Bonaparte's, the restaurant failed becaused the head chef was lazy and incompetent, screwing the owner. In this restaurant, it was the owner who was lazy and incompetent. In the process, she screwed two people (not including Gordon himself): her own father, and a promising chef who flew from Scotland to Paris to help out. Rather than accept full responsibility for running the cafe (even though the vegetarian menu was her idea), she decided to pass the buck on her father--forcing him to shoulder the debt and operations. In the end, she learned nothing.

    The only bright spot of this episode was the introduction to India whose talent and ambition was noticed by Ramsay. It was a relief to see her continue her career in London. This was a minor, comfortable happy ending to an otherwise painful episode.moreless
