Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares USA: Gordon Ramsay tries to save Luigi’s on Channel 4 tonight!
Gordon Ramsay continues his travels across the United States in a bid to save failing restaurants from disaster. In this week’s programme, Gordon travels to Orange County, Southern California, to try to save an Italian restaurant from imminent destruction.
Luigi’s is a family-run restaurant established 30 years ago when Luigi, helped by his father Dominic, opened the premises. It was a successful restaurant with a great reputation until Dominic decided to retire to Italy and brought in his other son, Tony, to help run it. Unfortunately, Tony didn’t share Luigi’s passion and a series of lazy shortcuts led the business to suffer, along with the family.
In-fighting between Luigi, his wife Grace and his brother Tony, along with unappetising food, brought the restaurant to the brink of disaster. Upon discovering there are a whopping 126 dishes on the menu, Gordon decides to try the ‘special’ fried ravioli, which doesn’t taste very special at all. He realises he’s got major problems, but before he can start to rebuild the restaurant, he has to find a way to bring the warring family together. Can he fix the situation, or is Luigi’s beyond repair?
