Episode Summary

The Consultants Arrive
Six months after opening, Rocco's restaurant is losing money and owner Jeffrey Chodorow is determined to find out why. He sends in an aggressive team of consultants - his Corporate Task Force - to observe and come up with creative solutions to the restaurant's fiscal crisis. Much to Mamma's chagrin, Corporate Chef Luke immediately makes his presence known in the kitchen, while Chodorow's clueless 20-year-old apprentice, Drew, makes a clumsy attempt to play host and bartender, and soon finds himself fired as an intern. Meanwhile, Rocco avoids the restaurant altogether, choosing instead to appear at book signings and talk to school children in Harlem rather than show up at his own restaurant. Jeffrey's and Rocco's ongoing battle culminates in a dramatic face-to-face showdown in which Jeffrey gives Rocco a final ultimatum - get back in the restaurant or get out.moreless
