On a brand new episode of Kitchen Nightmares on FOX tonight, Gordon Ramsay travels to Manhattan Beach, CA to help a young restaurant owner who is clueless as to why her restaurant is failing. Will Gordon Ramsay be able to help salvage this restaurant before it’s too late or will this immature owner’s tantrums make it dive indefinitely? You’ll have to keep reading for all the tasty details!
As Gordon Ramsay pulls up a seat at Lido Di Manhattan on Kitchen Nightmares on FOX he is quickly disgusted by what he sees. Aside from the completely boring decor, he notices the owner, Lisa, is no where near the kitchen where she should be while his food is being prepared. He becomes even more disgusted once he tastes the items off the menu. He is served undercooked eggplant, rubbery chicken and tuna that tastes frozen despite the fact that he is told it was fresh.
Upon further inspection of the food at Lido Di Manhattan on Kitchen Nightmares on FOX, Gordon Ramsay discovers food that is no where near fresh, thus why it tastes so bad. When he questions Lisa and the staff, it is all finger pointing with no one willing to take the blame. When he opens the refrigerator, Lisa is mortified by what she sees in there and vows that it will be changed.
At dinner service later that night with food coming back to the kitchen consistently, Gordon Ramsay loses it after he notices inches worth of dirt right above the food. He stops dinner service and makes the staff clean everything, but Lisa is no where to be found after she runs off in tantrum. Her staff finds her crying in the bathroom, and despite the fact that they need a leader, she remains in there crying for 2 hours.
Gordon Ramsay really seems to have his hands full with this one.
Next on Kitchen Nightmares on FOX the staff of Lido Di Manhattan seems to have had it with their old, outdated computer system, so Gordon Ramsay has a little fun and lets them take a bat to it. Upon doing his renovation of the restaurant, he supplies them with a brand new, state of the art restaurant computer system.
The kitchen staff of Lido Di Manhattan doesn’t seem to appreciate or understand the new computer system, however. On their relaunch night, which has changed the restaurant from just a restaurant to a restaurant and wine bar the kitchen staff is just standing around not getting their orders out as needed. Lisa, who has finally grown up and realized that she needs to take control, starts trying to communicate with the chef’s but it caused them to walk out of the restaurant on Kitchen Nightmares on FOX.
In a panic, Gordon Ramsay calls his friend, Chef Scott to come down immediately and help them out. Chef Scott arrives just as the kitchen staff decides to come back, so Chef Scott takes the reigns and shows them how to effectively run a kitchen. As we always hear on Kitchen Nightmares on FOX, communication is the key to running a kitchen and Chef Scott is going to stick around for the next month to help get this kitchen back in order.
Lisa happily reported at the end of the episode that Chef Scott is training her staff to run the kitchen properly and because of this, Lido Di Manhattan’s profits have skyrocketed! Another success story for Gordon Ramsay on Kitchen Nightmares on FOX !!
