He returns for a dinner service. As the orders come in complimentary salads are sent out in martini glasses and Gordon is not impressed. As food goes out it comes back as the food was cooked the previous night. Gordon takes a look through the fridges and discovers that everything is in plastic bags. Gordon visits Una at her medical practice and tells her she is in denial and needs to make big changes. She says she has put in her last $300,000 and can only last another month. She breaks down and says that Keone isn't always dependable. He sits down Keone who admits he is not as committed as he was. He tells Keone the situation and tells him to focus on family first.
Gordon introduces a special BBQ menu with meat and fish cooked by Keone. In the kitchen they are still using the bags and Una told them to serve day old rice and beans. The customers love the BBQ but are left waiting in the dining room. Gordon brings in a wheelbarrow of plastic bags and dumps them on the floor. Overnight, the restaurant is transformed and a new sign is introduced out the front. The old menu is replaced with fresh Jamaican dishes and the staff are to wear t shirts.
On relaunch night, it starts to go well with appetizers going out quickly. Soon, the tickets pile up, chef Daniel gets behind and the quality drops. Gordon takes Keone aside to tell him to step up, Dr Morris comes in arguing with him and Gordon tells her to let him find his voice. The kitchen gets back on track and most customers are pleased with the relaunch. Gordon praises Keone on his work but has a private chat with Dr Morris where he tells her to let Keone be more involved or let him go.
What Happened Next?
Gordon revisits and meets Una, he finds out that Keone is no longer involved as he is focusing on his education. She has fired all the chefs and the serving staff and rehired. Gordon says the food is fresh, delicious and more spicy. Gordon meets new chef Christie and Una is very appreciative of Gordon's help.
Reviews are mostly good after the show. The restaurant closed in November 2012 BUT reopened in November 2013, with a new dance floor, some new menu items but many of the old, themed nights such as a jazz night and an expanded bar. As of November 2015, they have very limited opening hours, only open for evening service on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
