Chef Gordon Ramsay visits Park Edge in Atlanta, Georgia, where first time owners Richard and Jorge have no experience of running a restaurant and have no idea what they are doing. Newly qualified Jorge thinks his food is excellent when in reality it isn't and Richard runs the front of house. The restaurant got in trouble for serving liquor without a license and has had trouble with the neighbours. Gordon arrives and sits the pair down, they say it is not the food that is the problem but that they have made mistakes with the locals.
Gordon sits down to sample the food and notices the menu has everything on it and describes it as "fusion confusion". He orders the grilled salad, oysters and sesame salmon. He is not impressed by the food describing it as inedible. Gordon discovers that Jorge has little experience and opened the restaurant before even finishing culinary school and says that he shouldn't be running a kitchen, Jorge walks out. He next chats to Richard about problems in the neighbourhood, he tells him that they put a tent up in the parking lot without a permit, then served liquor without a license and then basically accused the neighbours of being racist.
Gordon watches a dinner service and is aware early that Jorge does not know what he is doing. The customers are not happy with the food. Richard hides in the back to avoid complaints as he does not know how to handle them and the customers walk out. Gordon inspects the kitchen and finds rotting meat and vegetables which Jorge blames on the staff. Gordon calls a team meeting for the staff to vent their frustration, the owners promise to change.
Gordon knows that they need to rebuild bridges in the community and encourage the owners to go on local news and Richard makes an apology to the neighbours. Gordon revamps the restaurant featuring local art and the menu is simplified. Gordon has his team come in to train the staff on the new menu, chef Matt gets angry and refuses to cook but later he calms down. For the relaunch the restaurant is packed. Jorge steps up and the food is a big hit. Matt starts to get angry again, has an attitude and overcooks the food, Jorge takes him out of the kitchen and continues alone.
