Kitchen Nightmare Assignment
Wow! I have watched many episodes of Kitchen Nightmares, but I have never seen this one. I
have seen Ramsey much more pissed, but I have never seen a restaurant so bad. The restaurant was
a chaos from top to bottom, everything from the front house setting to the kitchen to the
management. The restaurant Oceana, has a prime location apparently and receives a lot of walk ins,
its obvious because the food looks disgusting so I assume that they would hardly have repeat guests.
Givin that the restaurant is in such a prime location there are many obstacles regarding having a lot
of walk ins and trying to get every dish out perfectly.
When Chef Ramsey arrived it was obvious that the restaurants operation was terrible. Frozen
food, expired food, management fighting, etc. The two brothers Moe and Rami along with Chef
Ramsey were the main characters in this episode. There was a lot of conflict between Moe and
Rami as well as Chef Ramsey and Moe. The restaurant had several MAJOR issues, first the
executive chef they had was probably the most disgusting person I have seen, I would like to see
him come to Kendall or Glion and see how our Chefs work. The Chef was not only bad at his job he
was also a liar. There was a part in the episode were Moe said “ It is like he was taking money
straight from our pockets” referring to the chef, so I think the best decision made was to fire him.
Second problem was off course hygiene, the hygiene in this restaurant was 0!, expired food, and
rats! The crabs being frozen for so long and the duck being cooked prior to serve date and not even
dated was extremely unprofessional. They had probably never clean that kitchen after using it and
would probably go home and not even check to see if anything needs cleaning. Third problem was
the denial they had of how bad their food was, I liked how they would blame the customer as
having a bad opinion instead of actually looking at what they are doing wrong, I mean who are they
kidding? Another issue that was bringing the restaurant down was Moe, he is a hot head who has no
business running a restaurant. Not only was Moe fighting with his bother all the time, but he thinks
that he knows what he is doing when obviously he nows nothing of FnB management. He has the
recipes saved in his head, when he said that to chef Ramsey I wanted to just kick him in the face
because he sounded so stupid throughout the entire episode. He keeps fighting with his brother
Rami who actually cares about the restaurant and is giving his time and effort to listen to Ramsey in
order to educate himself to run a better place. The last major issue is Moe firing his staff all the
time, which costs him so much money and negative work environment. Moe can not be a leader he
has no qualities of being one, he can not support, motivate, or even coper-ate with his employees.
There is nothing positive to say about this restaurant, I would
