Gordon Ramsey's 'Kitchen Nightmares' filming at a restaurant around the block from me

The other day I was going to the bank and noticed many tents filled with food, ovens ...I thought it was some kind of catering party or something. Then My wife just found out they are filming at a local restaurant ( ive never been there). Tomorrow Im going to be a little nosy and try to get a closer look

How very cool!!! Yep, while it may be common sense when you are in the throws of it it's hard to know how to pull yourself out of that hole to make a change. And when you only cook one way and don't suggestions very well it's next to impossible!

Larry! You need to see if you can get into the restaurant when they do their grand re-opening!

Yeah, im going to be a little nosy today and try to see whats going on. What is funn is there is so many tents filled with food, and things like that. Im not sure if that is to feed the filming crew, or if they are doing all their ' magic' in these tents, and making it seem like it is all within the restaurant. Sure, any restaurant can turn around when u have a huge staff like that in your parking lot doing all kinds of things.

Do I envy you! How great it would be to see something like that going on. I just don't understand how much energy and discipline the 'Chef' has every time he is working with someone. He has his kitchen's so spotless and the food is of such great quality.

He has such a unique personality. He can tell you off one time and then come back and give you big hug and kiss. He can really rip the people to humiliation, but only if they deserve it.

Like I said, I sure envy you and hope you will come back again and tell us every detail. Like hearing a good story. Thanks for sharing and finding out why all the tents were there. Good for you!
