Ramsay's Best Restaurant
Did anyone see this premiere on BBC America last night? I'm completely saturated with Ramsay at this point, but he always seems so much more watchable when he's on BBC. Not a bad premise for a show either.
I watched -and share the BBC Ramsay preference. Ok show - rather fun to see the secret diner experiences and the critique of how FOH must support BOH. Would prefer the final choice was more clearly based on specifics - and I was cheering for the place that lost since I just really respected the chef. Will watch the series but not yet obssessed with it.
I agree that Gordon's much more watchable on BBC, and I enjoyed the episode but disagreed with the final choice for finalists - the boyos have some growing up to do, their mother needs to retire, and the other chef has very clearly earned his chops without resorting to gimcrackery. Just my opinion.
Definitely agree the BBC Gordon is the more real Gordon and agree the wrong restaurant won this match. It was "bookended" by a BBC "Kitchen Nightmares" about a family restaurant in Ireland, and the infamous Fox "Kitchen Nightmares" about Black Pearl in NYC, which I thought kind of ironic.
