Kitchen Nightmares (2007–2014)
4 Sep. 2008Revisited: Gordon Returns
Ramsay pays another visit to some restaurants he helped in the past to check up on their progress.
11 Sep. 2008Handlebar
Ramsay faces an owner who is oblivious and combative about the reality of the Hanhlebar's failures, and a wife desperate to keep their business open, replete with a cook who isn't a cook and doesn't seem to care.
18 Sep. 2008Giuseppi's
Gordon tries to turn around a struggling Italian restaurant in Michigan and repair the fractured family that own it.
25 Sep. 2008Trobiano's
Ramsay faces the owner of Trobiano's, a struggling business going under, who is arrogant and can't see what's happening to it and the people around him.
25 Sep. 2008Black Pearl
Ramsay walks into the Black Pearl: a failing restaurant with lousy food and three owners who can't see eye-to-eye, including one who has his head up his butt so far he can't see reality.
30 Oct. 2008J Willy's
Gordon visits a barbecue joint in South Bend, Indiana that is being run into the ground by owner John, who is oblivious to the restaurant's failings. Co-owners Rick and Tricia are also frustrated with John's inability to run it properly.
6 Nov. 2008Hannah & Mason's
Hannah and Mason's is a failing restaurant run by two friends who can't get their act together and one of which appears to have no passion and absolutely no drive regardless of the customer complaints.
6 Nov. 2008Jack's on Waterfront
Jack's Waterfront is a perfectly situated restaurant by the bay, but with terrible food and three owners and yet nobody in charge, and a father with over 40 years in the restaurant industry who doesn't know what's going on and won't accept responsibility.
13 Nov. 2008Sabatiello's
It's Gordon vs. Sammy. Sabatiello's is a struggling business run by Sammy -- a stubborn, combative and abusive owner with a skull that won't let the truth in.
13 Nov. 2008Fiesta Sunrise
Vic, owner of the Fiesta Sunrise, is running the business into the ground like his previous failed restaurant, only using money from his wife and stepdaughter, but is oblivious to it. Things go from bad to appallingly horrible once Ramsay has a look into the kitchen...
20 Nov. 2008Sante la Brea
The Sante la Brea is run by a manager who can't manage and his two sons; one who needs guidance and the other who just doesn't seem to listen, on top of a cook in low gear and a kitchen that causes a shut down.
