Been there, Done that
20 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is exactly like Gordon Ramsey's: Kitchen Nightmare's it's funny. British host - check, designing restaurants - check, accentuating fresh food and ideas (and berating) the chef/cooks on staff - check. Pain in the ass owner - check. Hosts own design team - check. Check, check, check.

I've been watching Gordon Ramsey's version on BBC America channel for several years and his American version as well.

I know networks rip-off British shows and each other, but this is to irritating. He just exchanges Ramsey's "rustic" food with an Americanized version of the same term. Not that it is not a good show, but come on already.

A different thing about this show is that is concentrates more on the re-decorating aspect of the restaurant. Shocker, of course there are problems with some aspect of the process. American's (and I am one) like home improvement shows, so in my opinion, they added that to make the show slightly different from Kitchen Nightmares.
