Gordon oversees a dinner service and walks into a kitchen full of smoke. Food is sent back to the kitchen, the warmer unit is not even hot, the crabs are milky, there are very old prawns that make Gordon retch/vomit and there is sour food. The crawfish and pasta is cooked days in advance, there are boxes of food going off in the fridge and a bag of warm jambalaya. He then finds a mouse trip with 3 dead mice in. Gordon shuts down the restaurant based on what he has seen.
Gordon calls in the exterminators when a live mouse runs out and after he finds out they have never had a proper clean, the staff start deep cleaning the kitchen. Moe starts shouting at Rami as he blames him before shouting at the servers, throwing chairs and downing shots. Executive Chef Damon is sacked. and as Moe has all his recipes in his head the chefs have no idea what they are meant to be cooking. Gordon starts by revamping the menu as Moe offers no recipes and Gordon teaches them a blackened salmon special. The owners allow Gordon to make whatever changes he needs to make. Gordon gives the dining room makeover with a fresh lick of paint and a decluttering. They sample the new menu and Moe likes it!
On Relaunch night, Rami is supervising the kitchen and Moe running the front of house. Moe abandons the front of house and hovers around the kitchen and has to be sent back out. The customers are liking the new menu and Moe appears back in the kitchen, moaning about the speed of the food. Moe walks out and Gordon goes after him. Gordon leaves and is unsure if Oceana will still be there when he revisits.
What Happened Next?
Oceana Grill restaurant is still open. After filming, online posts seem to suggest that nothing had changed, the decor didn't look different, unhappy customers were still shouted at and the menu was mostly the same too. A lot of the staff featured in the show had left. Yelp and Trip Advisor reviews are mostly good , mostly done on mobiles, there is rumoured to be a promotion whereby you get a free drink for an online review on Trip Advisor.
