Humoring the Chef: 101
29 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This has got to be one of the worst owners in six seasons. Despite claiming afterward to have been misrepresented on the show, his actions during the show and afterward tell a different story.

There's no misrepresenting a man who stands or sits there and laughs at you while you try to tell him what's wrong/what he's doing wrong. There's no misrepresenting a man who tells everybody Ramsay is right, but won't admit to what he did wrong and then starts telling everybody not to make more mistakes. And there's no misrepresenting a man who has pretty much ignored everything Ramsay did for him.

I find it remarkably coincidental that something around 98% of the staff that spoke out about what Joe Nagy was doing wrong and how he treated the staff, all mysteriously were no longer employed there after Ramsay left. This stinks of retribution firing. I know, quite a claim; what can I even try to back that up with? His actions after Ramsay left, both in the episode and out: He promised he had changed and would stay out of the kitchen and that he realized he was a problem back there, yet after Ramsay was gone, he fired the only other chef in there smarter than the Great Nag-dini himself, and kept the knowledgeable one Gordon got him. In one ear and out the other.

He immediately started changing the menu, again -- after Ramsay left. No shocker there, which leads into the next one...

...he ignored Ramsay's help about what the locals wanted and closed Mill Street Bistro, instead re-opening it as Maple City Tavern. No doubt full of pricey imported beers and pricey imported wines out of the range of the average local's paycheck.

Finally, if he had indeed learned anything from Chef Ramsay, whom as of 2014 has 24 restaurants still open, and a net worth reported by Forbes to be a billion dollars, Maple City Tavern would be doing well, yet a quick check of the reviews on two sites, including Yelp, tell a different story: bad food, improperly cooked food, pricey food with small portions (more costly than local places, one reviewer reported), and users are reporting he's still yelling and cursing at the staff.

This man has not changed. He did not learn anything from Ramsay. Maple City Tavern will suffer the same financial loses and dwindling customers, only this time Ramsay will not be there to help him. And this time there will be nobody he can say misrepresented him.
