Gordon wants to sample the food and they prepare a sample of all 100 dishes that fill the dining room! Gordon cannot tell some of the dishes apart and say the dishes do not look attractive. On tasting the dishes, he describes most as bland and believes others have too much garlic. The chefs don’t think that any of the food is good. Gordon is not happy and leaves the restaurant. He returns for dinner service, the diners do not like the food and plenty of dishes are sent back. Gordon notices the Chefs are not properly trained but also that the kitchen is filthy. He decides to look in the walk in and freezer, he discovers mouldy, rotten food and improperly stored meat. He shuts the restaurant down and orders the staff to deep clean the kitchen.
The next day, Gordon takes everyone to an Art Gallery and he also gives Michael training to improve his cooking and management skills. Gordon revamps the restaurant, modernizing the dining room and has installed a new state of the art system for ordering food which also has photographs of the food. Gordon narrows down the menu by half, adding some modern Italian dishes. On relaunch night Gordon has high hopes for Michael as his attitude is more positive. He gets off to a good start, dishes are leaving the kitchen and the customers are happy. However, Michael starts to lose control and sends out a tables orders twice. Gordon gives him a pep talk, he sorts the kitchen out and food starts going out again. Gordon is pleased with Michael's new attitude and tells Rose her son is ready to take over from her.
What Happened Next?
The restaurant is still open. Yelp reviews since filming are good, Trip Advisor reviews are mixed and Chef's Carchi and Darryl were fired after filming. Gordon revisits the restaurant a year later, Michael is still there but staff reveal that he is there a few hours and spends the rest of the time in a local bar. Ramsay is happy with the food but not happy with Michael, he promises he will be a better leader and commit time to the restaurant.
