Six Steps - worst episode of Restaurant Makeover ever

Tara9000 | Apr 3, 2007 10:11 AM

Did anyone catch this epsiode last night? I think this was the worst episode of the show to date. The entire thing was a giant publicity grab - and strayed very far from the show's concept of helping out a troubled restaurant (not that they always manage to do that in the end, but that's another story).

None of the show rules were really followed - they had about 10 times the normal budget, took several days longer than the usual renos, and the owners were all over the place - so the end 'reveal' was no surprise. I also found the owners extremely annoying - especially the younger of the two. So much so that I'd probably pass on a visit there in the future and spend my money elsewhere.

The house chef looked like he knew his stuff - and the food they prepped (especially the cornish hen dish) looked great. However, I checked out some recent reviews, and neither were that promising (see below).
