On the first of two episodes of Kitchen Nightmares, Chef Gordon Ramsay comes to the rescue of another restaurant on the brink of disaster when he visits Sabatiello’s in Stamford, Connecticut. Sabatiello’s is owned by a man named Sammy, who is over one million dollars in debt.
One of the problems facing Sabatiello’s is that local newspaper reviews have mentioned Sammy’s hot-temper and lack of customer service. These are not the kind of reviews that a family eatery wants to receive.
When Chef Gordon Ramsay first visits Sabatiello’s, he offers up his own criticism of the food. Chef Ramsay goes as far as to even criticize the lasagna recipe of Sammy’s mother, which makes Sammy’s temper flare us. When the kitchen staff starts turning against Sammy, he shuts down the restaurant.
Will Chef Ramsay be able to put things right between Sammy and his staff? Will Sabatiello’s reopen the doors? Kitchen Nightmares airs on Thursday, November 13 from 8 PM to 9 PM ET/PT on FOX.
