Kitchen Nightmares restaurants close; Gordon Ramsay attacked
If you've ever watched the US version of Kitchen Nightmares, the show where chef Gordon Ramsay goes around to different failing restaurants and tries to fix them, you've probably wondered what happens 3 or 6 months or a year down the road. Do the restaurants stay on track and continue to be a success?
Well, not always.
Sebastian's, a Burbank, CA restaurant featured on the show, closed over the weekend, according to WhatWouldRamsayDo.com. In a message, the owners said that they are moving back to the Boston area for family reasons. LAist says that the owner hinted that a network was interested in him having his own food/reality show.
Interestingly, that's not the only Kitchen Nightmares place to close. Lela's in Pomona has also gone out of business, which would make it the third restaurant featured on the show to close (though one of them reopened under new management).
Restaurant closings aren't the only Ramsay news today. The Sun reports that at another restaurant featured on the show, a chef actually chased Ramsay down the street with a knife! Apparently he didn't like Ramsay telling him that he "disliked him more than anyone in the world." Security guards got to the chef before he could reach Ramsay.
