Kitchen Nightmares... reoccurring theme???

lynnlato | Nov 9, 2007 02:06 PM

I watched 11/7/07's episode of Gordon Ramsay's "Kitchen Nightmares" and am beginning to notice a common denominator in all the episodes: The overwhelming majority of restaurants featured are Italian owned & operated. Anyone else pick up on this?

I gotta say, though, this most recent episode was a laugh riot. This dude's menu was a hot mess. It had something like 20 different combinations... one of which was a plate of diced up steak which Gordon so eloquently referred to as "dog food" and then asked for a "sick bag". Ha! Gordon was particularly brutal with this guy, I have to say. Ouch. I was cringing through much of the show. Not that it wasn't well-deserved.

I also noticed that Gordon did a lot less to spruce up the restaurant. No new & shiny kitchen equipment. No redesign of the front of the house. All he did was develop a new menu and verbally berrate the owner. Oh, and drop an extrordinary amount of f-bombs!

I enjoyed it nonetheless tho.
