Gordon Ramsay is back tonight to revisitÂ restaurants that he had previously turned around on Kitchen Nightmares on FOX. He heads to check in on both Sante La Brea and Giuseppi’s to see if the guidance and help he lent actually worked and that they are still going strong or if they have given up and closed shop. Keep reading for all the details!
Gordon Ramsay‘s first stop tonight onKitchen Nightmares on FOX was to Los Angeles CA to check in on Dean and his two sons of Santa La Brea restaurant. If you recall, a year ago this place was a disaster. This restaurant boasted of healthy meals, but there was nothing healthy about all the rotten food Chef Ramsay discovered in the freezers. The server at Santa La Brea had his own problem, sweating and the refusal to wear deodorant….at one point Gordon Ramsay made him go home and change his shirt. The owner also to deal with a disgruntled chef who did not follow orders well and seemed to have lost his spark.
One year later, Gordon Ramsay was stunned by the changes of Santa La Brea on Kitchen Nightmares on FOX. Dean, whom Chef Ramsay thought was very stressed had decided to retire and left the restaurant to his sons, who have kept it going just as Gordon Ramsay left it. He was proud when he walked into the freezer and saw how clean and fresh everything was, as well as with his meal which was absolutely delicious and healthy! Gordon Ramsay was also shocked to learn that the server and chef were both let go, but upon seeing the server once again, he realized his sweat issue did not go, good thing they got rid of him.
Next up on Gordon Ramsay‘s revisit list on Kitchen Nightmares on FOX was Guiseppi’s Italian restaurant in Detroit, Michigan. Not only was this restaurant a mess due to a microwave maniac, but the family was falling apart at the seams as well. Chef Ramsay managed to not only clean up the restaurant and get their business back, but he had also managed to bring a father and son together again. Gordon Ramsay even managed to kick out the microwaving sous chef after an argument over his lack of concern for the restaurant and customers.
One year later Guiseppi’s restaurant is doing almost as well as Gordon Ramsay had left it last time on Kitchen Nightmares on FOX. The food was impeccable and father and son were still on united front with dad letting his son run the kitchen and becoming a chef. Unfortunately though for the family, the economy was taking it’s toll on them as their home was foreclosed and they would be looking for a place to live in a few weeks…still they remained hopeful and Gordon Ramsay encouraged them to keep up the hard work at Guiseppi’s restaurant. A short while after Chef Ramsay’s revisit however, the economy took it’s toll on Guiseppi’s as well and the family had to close to down. What a complete shame, but at least Chef Ramsay managed to mend the family back together!
Be sure to tune in next Friday at 9 pm EST for a brand new episode of Kitchen Nightmares on FOX.
