If you watched the episode she (Amy) mentions that she speaks 'cat' and has a different voice for talking to each of her (4) kids (cats). She also stated that she only wanted Gordon to visit to tell everyone how great her food was, that she was an awesome chef and anyone who complained was a 'hater'. The only thing Gordon liked, food wise, was the cakes....which it turns out the purchase elsewhere and repackage. The husband must be insanely rich and she must suck great dick....otherwise I can not see how anyone would want to be with either of them.

I watched this episode the other night and could not get over how pompous these two are.  Turns out she was in jail at one time for ID theft, he was at one time a two bit mobster.  They steal tips from their house staff and resell merchandise to claim as their own.  What a bunch of business hacks.

It was so nice of that hacker to delete hundreds of negative comments and everything pertaining to them stealing from other sites all of the dessert images posted on their FB page and their website while the shiatstorm and allcaps postings were going down.......until the flood of comments became too much for them to handle.

He also didn't change their password or password recovery options so they were able to log in the next day (after sobering up) and immediately delete all the offending posts.


What a considerate hacker.

I only recently got into Gordon Ramsey, and I farking saw this episode. Hoooooly shiat. People tend to abuse terms like 'narcissist' and 'sociopath' ... and really this episode brings to the forefront exactly what those things are.

I imagine /b and other lulz'ers are predominantly upset not that these two are utter asshats, but that they brazenly steal their employees tips. And said, on camera, that they do not deserve their tips. Their food is shiat, they treat the customers like crap...and when the customers are bailing they feel bad for the wait staff who are clearly trying under horrible conditions. So they leave them a nice tip.

Which they steal.

They are both such awful human beings that really, I'm enjoying watching the internet kick the shiat out of them.

Especially since Ramsay asked specifically who made the pastries and she claimed she did.

And how "the pastas are homemade except the gnocchi" meant "the pastas are frozen, store-bought".

2013-05-15 01:34:01 PM  
This was by far the strangest episode I've ever seen.  I would like to know if there were any other factors that lead to Gordon leaving...like the speculation on Reddit about the place being a front for money laundering (see below).


As I stated in another TFD thread concerning the "hacking":

The consequences will never be the same once the Cyber Police get involved in back tracing the alleged hacking.


Also, reposting from a thread on Reddit, a guy makes a pretty interesting point about this place being a front for money laundering:

1. If this place isn't a money laundering operation, I don't know what is.

2. Sammy screamed 'Don't call the police'. This was one of the only things he really stood up to his wife on. I think Sammy is involved in serious criminal shiat and he doesn't want Johnny Law to come poking around and causing any disruptions to the money losing business here. I'm not sure if the fact that they don't trust anyone else to run the place has anything to do with that, or whether they're just nuts. If they were smarter, I feel like they could let it run itself. See point #4 for a possible reason for that.

3. The place is clearly hemorrhaging money. All those fresh veggies come at a huge premium in Arizona and no one is buying them since no one eats there. This is a tactic to inflate food costs and make the on-the-books profits (from crime) a bit more believable. You have high prices and 'quality ingredients' and on its face, it looks like a classy place dealing in high-quality, high-margin food that's doing very, very well. In reality, they're buying top-dollar with dirty money and selling nothing.

4. Putting all of that money into the facilities, kitchen equipment and the dining area is a way to build tangible equity in a property, paid for by dirty money, of course. This is similar to how house flipping has become the new Las Vegas for cleaning dirty money. Even if you put 100k of criminal money into a house and sell it for 80k, you still made 80k in clean money (and the write off for the business loss - more clean money). And what you ask is Sammi's other 'legitimate' business enterprise? Custom home building. Same farking principle: Build equity in something tangible with dirty money, sell it (at a loss or profit, who gives a fark) and money comes clean out the other side.

5. The compensation structure for servers is just another money cleaning tactic. The money from tips never hits the books. It's pocketed immediately and spent on gas, food, clothes etc. All the sorts of stuff that is bought in a day that isn't traced and is used up (burned, eaten, thrown out etc.) when it's done. You keep the clean, un-traceable cash coming in (tips), and then pay out more money in wages to lose money so that the money that comes in from crime doesn't make the place look TOO profitable. If they weren't so wretched and money hungry they would just let the girls work on tips like most people, but they're so narcissistic, deluded and downright evil that they think they're entitled to it and don't know when to stop.

6. They are mean to people because well, they're nuts, but also because Sammy doesn't actually give much of a fark if many people come in or not. If a few quiet, agreeable customers come in and eat, so be it. For Sammy, this place is an annoyance. He hates being there and knows it's a waste of his legitimate criminal time to have to deal with it. He was just stupid and married a crazy 'trophy wife' who thinks she can cook and the less he has to do in a day in terms of dealing with angry customers, the better. Hell, he might have married her BECAUSE he thought she was stupid enough to believe she's making money when no one comes in. To me that's why a lot of that bad food is just thrown away; otherwise she gets crazy and causes more disruptions to the fence.

7. Ever wonder why he doesn't know how to use the POS system, but insists on using it? Because one day one of those girls is going to see ALL of these tables and checks listed on there that never actually came in, and then she'll ask why. Since she knows more about the system than he, she won't buy the lie he tells her. I wouldn't be surprised if that's a small part of the reason for the staff turnover: They don't want anyone knowing too much.
8. Because the thing is, at the end of the day, he can just make up checks and bills and act like all these customers came in and paid them lots of money for food, but just as long as the place isn't completely empty all the time and then reporting big profits, there shouldn't be any huge red flags so as long as the taxes keep coming into the IRS and the place keeps a quiet reputation. But SOMEBODY just had to call Ramsey and blow the whole cover....

Points 9-12 added by another user

9. EDIT: Everyone is asking how I reconcile them going on tv for help. ______________________

10. Remember, Amy thinks her problem is not her food, their shared attitude, their sparse staff or her creepy eyes. It's internet haters. That's it. She is perfect in every way. She feels the downturn in her business is due solely to bad publicity. For people with such grandiose self-images, the only way to deal with this would be to go to the very top and have the biggest chef in the world come and say that their food is amazing. Bad publicity problem solved. Note too, those awesome desserts she fed Ramsey, that he really liked, were all store bought. But she claimed they were hers. She does not care about the food in that sense, as she's willing to lie about that as the first step to the good publicity that she thinks is the silver bullet to fixing what she feels to be unjustifiably tarnished public image.

11. From Sammy's perspective, I think he's willing to take the small risk of having the cover blown on any laundering operation to sustain a good front and, like his wife, to try to, in his mind, restore the deservedly good reputation the place should rightly have. If he can somehow appease his wife, who I believe has him convinced she can cook, and keep the restaurant full so he doesn't need to butcher the receipts so much, he might be able to stop doing shady shiat altogether or at least have a better front. Then, if the restaurant is running well, he can leave it for someone else to operate and he can stay home and watch Scarface 50 times.

12. Essentially, I think HIS willingness to take this risk is rooted in their shared delusions about their own self values and they are willing to take the most drastic of measures to keep them as high as possible.

Seriously.  Every time either the crazy lady or her husband opened their mouths, you just had to stop and wonder how people like this manage to survive when they're just that terminally stupid or locked in denial.  It was an amazing episode, and I'm astounded that they're still in business.  I can't imagine why anyone would work there if they're not bucking for a wrongful termination case or something, and I sure as hell can't imagine why anyone would even think about eating there.

You think they actually called anyone? They also claimed they'd call the cops on customers who were refusing to pay. After the owner put his hands on someone (and I swear to god, if someone did that to my bff, they'd get a farking chair across their back, he's lucky he didn't get flattened out by those guys taking a poke at them like that) they DEMANDED they call the cops.

Of course they didn't. They simply threw them out screaming while she 'pretended' to call multiple times.

They just use threats and intimidation to try to bully people. They even posted a fake Reddit thread where Reddit users were claiming 'we'd better stop guys! the police just contacted me!'

You keep the clean, un-traceable cash coming in (tips), and then pay out more money in wages to lose money so that the money that comes in from crime doesn't make the place look TOO profitable. If they weren't so wretched and money hungry they would just let the girls work on tips like most people, but they're so narcissistic, deluded and downright evil that they think they're entitled to it and don't know when to stop.

I can't believe what a bunch of nerds we are. We're looking up "money laundering" in a dictionary.

(Thank you for clearing up for all us nerds in how to properly money launder)

I kept telling myself that these were actors; That they were hoping for a SoupNazi-like reputation for their resaurant, and maybe even a reality TV show.  No one can be that much of a biatch and no one has that fake an accent.  Sure, there may exist some people with such pathological avoidance issues as this, but there's no way they could operate a restaurant.  I'm still not sure.  Poe's law, maybe, but there is no way to generate more of an internet scandal/meme than exactly what they are doing.

That's because Ramsey isn't certifiably insane. He is a rather angry man but only when it's somewhat justified. These people were trying to force someone to pay for a pizza that they hadn't received.

Not even 2 minutes into the video (part 1) of the episode and Amy (the chef) is saying "I hope it hurts him" (when a customer eats the food she just made intentionally spicy) and they actually wonder why their restaurant is failing?  Bahahaha these people (the owners) are f*cking morons.

I was not up to date on this subject... but saw this on Yahoo (includes video of the show) and screen shots of some of the social media 'hacks'... cough, cough, samy...  epic douchebaggery.

bonus... they claim that Samy used to be like a Hugh Hefner (only better)... until he met Amy and then he gave that all up for her (she prayed for him to come into her life and GOD delivered him to her!!!)  very religious... right up til you complain about anything... the food.. .the wait for the food...  then it's 'fark you! get the hell out of my restaurant and don't come back!' and 'fark reddit' and 'fark yelp' and 'fark all the 'haters' who are just trying to hurt us....  pathetic.

Stupid.  Tranny.  Psychopath.

Each one just fine on its own; hell, even two out of three ain't necessarily bad.  Combine all three and add in a heaping dose of "utterly unfounded, delusional arrogance" and, well, you get what we have here.

The cake might just be the best part -- $10 says Mr. Ramsay knew there was no way anyone in that operation could crank out that case full of pastries (and double-or-nothin' on "the youngest one in the case is at least a day old"), and mentioned it at the beginning -specifically- to have a bomb to drop later in the show / relationship... but when he bailed on the effort, they left the praise in the broadcast to let Mr. and Mrs. Crazy shoot themselves in the foot... as the producers -had- to know they would.

RickN99: request to be on a national TV show showing how you run your operation.


A good point... for a normal person.  Remember, during the intros, she explained that she wanted to be on the show because she was delusionally certain Mr. Ramsay would tell her how awesome she was and how great her restaurant was and how all the "haters" were "wrong."

Crrrraaaayyyyyy-zzeeee.

Also, many criminals are stupid.  "No one else touches the computer [that I run fake transactions through to launder money]" may have seemed like Ft. Knoxian Security to ol' Samy.

You think they actually called anyone? They also claimed they'd call the cops on customers who were refusing to pay. After the owner put his hands on someone (and I swear to god, if someone did that to my bff, they'd get a farking chair across their back, he's lucky he didn't get flattened out by those guys taking a poke at them like that) they DEMANDED they call the cops.

Of course they didn't. They simply threw them out screaming while she 'pretended' to call multiple times.

They just use threats and intimidation to try to bully people. They even posted a fake Reddit thread where Reddit users were claiming 'we'd better stop guys! the police just contacted me!'

/This isn't the internet's first rodeo


One of the local papers to the restaurant interviewed the diner who got into the dispute with the owner.  Apparently, the police did show up in response to a 911 hangup, but determined that there wasn't anything to worry about and no police report was filed.

Money launderers generally have great food for reasonable prices.  After all, if you don't care about making a profit, you can spend for high quality ingredients and pay the cook a little extra.

The biggest question for me is who was able to talk them into pretending they were hacked and admitting the things they said were "terrible"?  Based on what I saw on the show and the local news story about the original Yelp review, this is not the kind of woman who will EVER admit she was wrong or said/did something inappropriate.  Someone must have laid the hammer down for her.

Wow, that's even more awesome. So she WAS calling when Samy screamed at her not to, and she stopped.


Holy shat. I wish she never hung up.

scandalrag: Vodka Zombie: wildcardjack: RickN99: Endive Wombat: 1. If this place isn't a money laundering operation, I don't know what is.

I wouldn't think a normal strategy for concealing a money-laundering operation was to request to be on a national TV show showing how you run your operation.

It's to give cover for all the real wash shops. Everyone's looking at this one instead of the italian place that doesn't even serve decent pizza.

Man...  I miss the pizzeria by my old house that was shut down as a money-laundering outfit.  As criminal as their business was, they did make a damn good pizza.


Money launderers generally have great food for reasonable prices.  After all, if you don't care about making a profit, you can spend for high quality ingredients and pay the cook a little extra.

\These idiots aren't laundering money.
\\You have to have enough customers to cover for the fake sales and expenses.
\\\Also, National TV.


Right near me us a place that serves up excellent food to the central city clientele. Good food, cheap prices, in a poor area. If he's laundering money, at least he's doing some good at the same time.

Endive Wombat: This was by far the strangest episode I've ever seen.  I would like to know if there were any other factors that lead to Gordon leaving...like the speculation on Reddit about the place being a front for money laundering (see below).


As I stated in another TFD thread concerning the "hacking":

The consequences will never be the same once the Cyber Police get involved in back tracing the alleged hacking.


Also, reposting from a thread on Reddit, a guy makes a pretty interesting point about this place being a front for money laundering:

1. If this place isn't a money laundering operation, I don't know what is.

2. Sammy screamed 'Don't call the police'. This was one of the only things he really stood up to his wife on. I think Sammy is involved in serious criminal shiat and he doesn't want Johnny Law to come poking around and causing any disruptions to the money losing business here. I'm not sure if the fact that they don't trust anyone else to run the place has anything to do with that, or whether they're just nuts. If they were smarter, I feel like they could let it run itself. See point #4 for a possible reason for that.

3. The place is clearly hemorrhaging money. All those fresh veggies come at a huge premium in Arizona and no one is buying them since no one eats there. This is a tactic to inflate food costs and make the on-the-books profits (from crime) a bit more believable. You have high prices and 'quality ingredients' and on its face, it looks like a classy place dealing in high-quality, high-margin food that's doing very, very well. In reality, they're buying top-dollar with dirty money and selling nothing.

4. Putting all of that money into the facilities, kitchen equipment and the dining area is a way to build tangible equity in a property, paid for by dirty money, of course. This is similar to how house flipping has become the new Las Vegas for cleaning dirty money. Even if you put 100k of criminal money into a house and sell it for 80k, you still mad ...


13. They believe in fitness.

Wow, this really just makes you want them to fail, be sued, go to jail and lose everything. If I lived nearby, I'd poop in a white foam cup, go up to Amy and ask why this was at the counter. I'd have a confused look and ask her what it is, she'd take a whiff and immediately vomit. She would run around yelling WHY WHY WHY? I'd yell at her for pooping in a cup and trying to give it to me to consume. Then I would take the cup and show other customers, then finally throw the cup at her and run away. So if someone nearby could do that for me please I'd appreciate it, or just leave poop on her car seat, I bet she has a convertible.

Yep. Good restaurant. Kitchen Nightmares provided them nothing of value and succeeded in making them look like fools even if most of it was manufactured. For instance, the fridge full of rotting food: the producers made them turn the fridge off so the lights and equipment could be plugged into the restaurant's circuit without tripping the breaker. Amazing that food spoils when not refrigerated. Sure, you could give the owners a hard time for not anticipating this but it's not like having rotting food in the fridge is a normal occurrence for them.

"I saw the show and I like the way the do not give the tips to the help, because that will help them to pull themselves up by their bootstraps!!" wrote Jim Donaldson on Facebook. "With God's love anything is possible!"

What an asshole.

I was a waitress off and on for years, more recently in my 30s to pay for a divorce. I notice her bullied staff are teenaged girls.  A grown woman would knock that psycho, Simpsons-character-looking biatch on her ass.

WinoRhino: Endive Wombat: This was by far the strangest episode I've ever seen.  I would like to know if there were any other factors that lead to Gordon leaving...like the speculation on Reddit about the place being a front for money laundering (see below).

I just heard from someone that they both have criminal records-- Amy apparently was involved with some sort of loan fraud with stolen social security numbers. I haven't been able to substantiate that, I'm just getting into this whole sage fairly late.


She applied for & got a line of credit using someone else's Social Security number. IIRC she ended up getting sentenced to a year in prison (bank fraud) plus the court ordered her to pay restitution. She appealed and lost.

a. Closetheirrestaurant, live like hermits
b. Seekcounselling, ask for forgiveness and become better people
c. Be rewarded with a new reality show, adding to their delusional mind set, narcissism and sense of self worth?


Either way, it's gonna end badly for these two, they are the very definition of bat shiat crazy.

I do enjoy how even in the face of comically minor criticism, this crazy woman melts down into full-blown victim mode.

I imagine a lot of this:

"That's it!  I'm closing for today.  Why would you say that about my hair?  What is wrong with you?  I should have you killed, you bastard!  I'm doing the best I can.  YOU'RE NOT MY REAL MOM!"

Both of these people are frauds and sociopaths.  And, they will go to great lengths to blame everyone else for their troubles in order to maintain the fragile facade they've worked very hard to create so as to hide the people they really are.

In the previous thread this was studied out. Evidently it's arabic for "enough of this shiat, lets go", "hurry up", or something like that. Someone pointed out that in one of the Mummy movies, the characters say "Ya'lah imshi", which is like "hurry up lets go".

The crying girl was spectacular.

Yep. Good restaurant. Kitchen Nightmares provided them nothing of value and succeeded in making them look like fools even if most of it was manufactured. For instance, the fridge full of rotting food: the producers made them turn the fridge off so the lights and equipment could be plugged into the restaurant's circuit without tripping the breaker. Amazing that food spoils when not refrigerated. Sure, you could give the owners a hard time for not anticipating this but it's not like having rotting food in the fridge is a normal occurrence for them.


You know, I'm not that concerened with HOW the spoiled meat ended up in their cooler so much as I'm concerned that the owner STILL wanted to serve it.

Yep. If you want to hear it in popular media:

Go back to the first Mummy movie with Brendan Fraser. There's at least two occasions where that hotter-than-the-sun arabic bad guy turned good guy says the same thing, basically while saying 'We out, yo, let's haul it!".
Yalla. Imshi!
Go to the first scene after they 'attack' Fraser's camp at night and he end the scuffle by lighting a stick of dynomite. The arab gigolo guy tells them to leave or die in 24 hours. Then, that's what he says as he turns his horse and leads his forces away.

My kid loves that movie, so ive seen it like 5000 times.

I saw a news report from a Phoenix station that showed them open for business last Saturday night. Samy was being very selective of who was allowed in the restaurant to eat and who wasn't.

Also - I know that the people who appeared on that episode have a clause in their contract to remain silent (for instance, the owners were NOT allowed to appear in an on-camera interview on the news) but I'd still like to know what's going on with the waitress, food runner, etc.

That seems about right. I think of the UK show more as featuring places that can actually be saved if they stop hanging on to the past. The US show is all about featuring restaurants run by people who have no business running a restaurant.

Well, Samy is a mobster, so I guess he threatens them all with broken kneecaps if that happened.

Aren't they in a mall?


I don't think she is the type to even have the concept of 'collateral damage' cross her mind, much less care if it did.
 I second the idea of one of them torching the place. Not just for insurance - its actually the only possible exit strategy that doesn't involve them admitting defeat by actively giving up, and it has the benefit of them being victims again and possibly culling sympathy and more attention. There isn't a downside for them.
 Hell, the husband may do it as -HIS- exit strategy from her money-losing dump even if she doesn't do it.

The restaurant business is ruthless.  Most fail in their first year, or so I hear.  Only the 'best' ones survive, either by having amazing food at cheap prices, or by ruthless exploitation somewhere in the system.

Well it went to my poo. I pooped blue for a week. It started off a dark navy blue, and gradualy lightened up to a sky and then baby powder blue.

Glad I'm not the only one.  Felt like absolute death the next day.  Quite deservedly.


Oh yeah, I was pretty farking sick the next day. Never drank it again.

I've worked in a couple of commercial kitchens (years ago, but still) and I can say this. In order to be successful in a private, non-chain type restaurant, ESPECIALLY if you're a chef, you need to be at least a LITTLE crazy (or at least insane) in order to pull it off long-term.

Otherwise, you'll burn out or self-destruct.

The work is also brutal, especially in the high-volume, casual-dining game. Think about it: not only do you have to deal with entitle customers all night long, but everything you do is on a short timer of about 20 minutes. Seating a table, serving a table, cooking for a table, etc requires a coordinated dance between about a dozen people (hostess, waiter, kitchen staff). Everyone has to get everything right on the first try, or you face the wrath of the customer.

It's a high-pressure industry, and the people that can deal with it usually fuel their nightly shift with pure emotion. Since you can't vent that emotion at the customer, the staff vents at each other.

There's a restaurant in Houston called Jonathan's The Rub. Little hole-in-the-wall place on I10 and Jonathan is a pretty crazy motherfarker. He kicked out a critic after she tried to say he didn't prepare her steak the way she wanted. After she wrote the review, she was eviscerated in the comments by his customers (no other critic has written bad about him before or after). He's an amazing chef and earned the right to be a little nuts. We go there at least once a month and it's fantastic, but he don't take no shiat from no one, and everyone respects him for it.

Check's profile.  Yanni's.

The crying girl was spectacular.

Yep. Good restaurant. Kitchen Nightmares provided them nothing of value and succeeded in making them look like fools even if most of it was manufactured. For instance, the fridge full of rotting food: the producers made them turn the fridge off so the lights and equipment could be plugged into the restaurant's circuit without tripping the breaker. Amazing that food spoils when not refrigerated. Sure, you could give the owners a hard time for not anticipating this but it's not like having rotting food in the fridge is a normal occurrence for them.

The guy is afraid to tell his wife that customers hate her food, and he is obviously hemorrhaging money to keep the store open to make her happy. If it's not a money laundering thing then she must be some kind of super nasty in the sex department. His whole keeping the tips and not letting anyone use the POS system makes me think laundering, but her whole thing of thinking she's amazing at everything and will do crazy shiat to prove it has me leaning towards sex fiend.

I knew those cakes were not hers immediately when I saw them, and I am not a foodie by any means. Ramsay must have known she was full of shiat.

This could be more epic than the video game controller guy.

Nah, I don't see her doing the tearful backpedal apology when the death threats come rolling in.  She's more like the dipshiat neighbor who paraded a coffin in front of the girl dying from MS.

I didn't mean to imply stupid. Far from it. You need a LOT of skills that I know *I* don't have to succeed in that line of work. But you need a splash of "Nukin' Futz" in there every so often to be able to ...decompress, I guess. I've never met a single successful chef that didn't have at least a little nutso streak in them.

Which is, of course, one of the things that make them fun as hell to hang with. Of course, they need to be able to hold on to that streak and keep it under control...unlike these folks...

ferretman: verbal_jizm: ArgusRun: verbal_jizm: I was going to respond that, after seeing what this farked up show did to my local Greek restaurant that the producers probably screwed these people over, but there's no way producers invented that. Holy crap. They didn't have to stage a thing here.

Yanni's?

Check's profile.  Yanni's.

The crying girl was spectacular.

Yep. Good restaurant. Kitchen Nightmares provided them nothing of value and succeeded in making them look like fools even if most of it was manufactured. For instance, the fridge full of rotting food: the producers made them turn the fridge off so the lights and equipment could be plugged into the restaurant's circuit without tripping the breaker. Amazing that food spoils when not refrigerated. Sure, you could give the owners a hard time for not anticipating this but it's not like having rotting food in the fridge is a normal occurrence for them.

Good food doesn't rot quickly.


Considering one of that's restaurant's problems was the encyclopedic menu, you're probably on to something.

Knowing their level of paranoia it's safe to bet that they keep any and all dumpsters locked and are the only ones besides the garbage pickup service that has keys.

• "She is also very involved in the Arizona Republican Party and volunteered numerous hours of her time during the 2006 elections. (See Letter from Matt Salmon, attached as Ex. B). In 2005, she was 1 of 250 people appointed to the Republican Presidential Task Force in Arizona."

• "Shortly after she was sentenced in the instant case, Ms. Bouzaglo was placed on four years probation by the Fourth Judicial District for Colorado Springs for the similar offenses of Theft and Forgery. Significantly, the conduct underlying those offenses occurred just two months before the instant offense, approximately seven years ago."

In other words, she's not just a felon, she's a multiple felon.

2013-05-15 05:21:30 PM  
This is a copypasta of a comment from a thread I saw yesterday. It's not my work, but it's entertaining to read.

If this place isn't a money laundering operation, I don't know what is.

Sammy screamed 'Don't call the police'. This was one of the only things he really stood up to his wife on. I think Sammy is involved in serious criminal shiat and he doesn't want Johnny Law to come poking around and causing any disruptions to the money losing business here. I'm not sure if the fact that they don't trust anyone else to run the place has anything to do with that, or whether they're just nuts. If they were smarter, I feel like they could let it run itself. See point #4 for a possible reason for that.

The place is clearly hemorrhaging money. All those fresh veggies come at a huge premium in Arizona and no one is buying them since no one eats there. This is a tactic to inflate food costs and make the on-the-books profits (from crime) a bit more believable. You have high prices and 'quality ingredients' and on its face, it looks like a classy place dealing in high-quality, high-margin food that's doing very, very well. In reality, they're buying top-dollar with dirty money and selling nothing.

Putting all of that money into the facilities, kitchen equipment and the dining area is a way to build tangible equity in a property, paid for by dirty money, of course. This is similar to how house flipping has become the new Las Vegas for cleaning dirty money. Even if you put 100k of criminal money into a house and sell it for 80k, you still made 80k in clean money (and the write off for the business loss - more clean money). And what you ask is Sammi's other 'legitimate' business enterprise? Custom home building. Same farking principle: Build equity in something tangible with dirty money, sell it (at a loss or profit, who gives a fark) and money comes clean out the other side.

The compensation structure for servers is just another money cleaning tactic. The money from tips never hits the books. It's pocketed immediately and spent on gas, food, clothes etc. All the sorts of stuff that is bought in a day that isn't traced and is used up (burned, eaten, thrown out etc.) when it's done. You keep the clean, un-traceable cash coming in (tips), and then pay out more money in wages to lose money so that the money that comes in from crime doesn't make the place look TOO profitable. If they weren't so wretched and money hungry they would just let the girls work on tips like most people, but they're so narcissistic, deluded and downright evil that they think they're entitled to it and don't know when to stop.

They are mean to people because well, they're nuts, but also because Sammy doesn't actually give much of a fark if many people come in or not. If a few quiet, agreeable customers come in and eat, so be it. For Sammy, this place is an annoyance. He hates being there and knows it's a waste of his legitimate criminal time to have to deal with it. He was just stupid and married a crazy 'trophy wife' who thinks she can cook and the less he has to do in a day in terms of dealing with angry customers, the better. Hell, he might have married her BECAUSE he thought she was stupid enough to believe she's making money when no one comes in. To me that's why a lot of that bad food is just thrown away; otherwise she gets crazy and causes more disruptions to the fence.

Ever wonder why he doesn't know how to use the POS system, but insists on using it? Because one day one of those girls is going to see ALL of these tables and checks listed on there that never actually came in, and then she'll ask why. Since she knows more about the system than he, she won't buy the lie he tells her. I wouldn't be surprised if that's a small part of the reason for the staff turnover: They don't want anyone knowing too much.

Because the thing is, at the end of the day, he can just make up checks and bills and act like all these customers came in and paid them lots of money for food, but just as long as the place isn't completely empty all the time and then reporting big profits, there shouldn't be any huge red flags so as long as the taxes keep coming into the IRS and the place keeps a quiet reputation.

EDIT: Everyone is asking how I reconcile them going on tv for help.

Remember, Amy thinks her problem is not her food, their shared attitude, their sparse staff or her creepy eyes. It's internet haters. That's it. She is perfect in every way. She feels the downturn in her business is due solely to bad publicity. For people with such grandiose self-images, the only way to deal with this would be to go to the very top and have the biggest chef in the world come and say that their food is amazing. Bad publicity problem solved. Note too, those awesome desserts she fed Ramsey, that he really liked, were all store bought. But she claimed they were hers. She does not care about the food in that sense, as she's willing to lie about that as the first step to the good publicity that she thinks is the silver bullet to fixing what she feels to be unjustifiably tarnished public image.
From Sammy's perspective, I think he's willing to take the small risk of having the cover blown on any laundering operation to sustain a good front and, like his wife, to try to, in his mind, restore the deservedly good reputation the place should rightly have. If he can somehow appease his wife, who I believe has him convinced she can cook, and keep the restaurant full so he doesn't need to butcher the receipts so much, he might be able to stop doing shady shiat altogether or at least have a better front. Then, if the restaurant is running well, he can leave it for someone else to operate and he can stay home and watch Scarface 50 times.

Essentially, I think HIS willingness to take this risk is rooted in their shared delusions about their own self values and they are willing to take the most drastic of measures to keep them as high as possible.

Fantasizing about power, success and attractiveness
Exaggerating your achievements or talents
Expecting constant praise and admiration
Believing that you're special and acting accordingly
Failing to recognize other people's emotions and feelings
Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans
Taking advantage of others
Expressing disdain for those you feel are inferior
Being jealous of others
Believing that others are jealous of you
Trouble keeping healthy relationships
Setting unrealistic goals
Being easily hurt and rejected
Having a fragile self-esteem
Appearing as tough-minded or unemotional

/five cents, please


Yes, she's a textbook narcissist. Sadly personality disorders are not easily treated, even when the person is able to recognize there's a problem. Most narcissists never recognize there's a problem beyond everyone else though.

Thank goodness they don't have kids, and I mean that sincerely.

I wonder how many times he'll get asked "Why don't you have a seat, right over there?"

I wonder how many times he's asked "I'm a 14 year old girl would you like to come see me?"


I've always wanted to see one of those episodes where they get some guy to show up and it turns out that while he claimed to a 25 year old neckbeard coming to see who he thinks is a 14 year old girl, he shows up and  he turns out to bea 12 year Asian school girl.

A Jew, an Italian, and an Irishman are at a bar, and the Jew and the Italian start arguing about Jesus.
The Jew says "Jesus was obviously a Jew, because his mother thought he was God."  The Italian says "No, Jesus was an Italian, because he thought his mother was God."  The Irishman says "No, no, no, you're both wrong.  Jesus was Irish".  The other two look at him and say "What?"  The Irishman replies "It's obvious.  He was unemployed in the building trades."

"was yelled at by an old guy with white hair. We tossed down enough money to pay the bill and walked out. Save your money and don't go to Amy's Baking Company." -

But no I don't believe I will do that. I try to avoid crazy people.

The problem isn't how good is your food. There's a lot of folks that can make really good chow that fail miserably.

How good a manager are you? How good a boss? How good a negotiator?

How good a financial planner? How good at multitasking?

How good a conflict resolver? How good at managing 10 OTHER people's jobs while doing your own?

How good a designer are you? How good a personal trainer/dietician?

How good a sterilizer/sanitizer/clean freak are you?

How well can you manage a kindergarten classroom? While doing any five of the above listed? While cooking for 50?

These are just some of the skills needed to run a successful solo restaurant.

Well, they fired the little blond waitress for asking a question. It was a perfect example of Crazyeye's narcissism, because while everyone else heard the girl asking for clarification, she heard a snotty personal attack.

That said, the place won't close because he has money and is basically spending his money so that she has something to do besides drive him nuts all day. When he finally does run out of cash, they'll blame the closing on the Internet Bullies and Gordon Ramsey's attack.

She simply can not see that she sucks.

I'm not surprised they aired it, but I'm SHOCKED that ABC noted several times on their Facebook page that the show was coming up and for fans to tune in.

Also, if anyone "hacked" their account, they should be given a Vegas stage show doing comedy impressions. How could you watch the episode, and read their previous non-deleted comments, and think that anyone else was possibly making the all-caps angry posts?

So the question keeps coming up, if he was laundering money, why would he put himself on tv?

Well first things first, they don't seem to be lacking for money. Of all of these shows you see the breakdown moment where the owner goes "yeah I've run the place into the ground, and if I don't do something I'll be bankrupt soon." This guy turns people who want to spend money away. Even the most insane owners I've seen don't do that. I might understand an ill tempered owner telling people not to come back, but turning people away? Not once did they even mention the money being a problem, just that $1 million was invested in the bakery.

I'm sure to get on Kitchen Nightmares they had to open up the books, and if you look at the legit books, which they probably keep, it looks like a money pit spewing out cash. But when you have people who just don't care, it rasies more than a bit of suspicion. People can be full of themselves, but when you're looking at a million dollar investment, usually people get over themselves enough to start at least LOOKing at the problem.

They have done an amazing job putting up a front. Pictures stolen from other websites for their food on yelp and facebook. Meanwhile they are buying that stuff and reselling it. They figured for the money they were spending it would be good enough to pass any of Gordon's taste tests, of course it would have become super obvious to him when he didn't see her making any of the dough. Buy cheap, sell as high end, super easy way to cook the books.

This leads me to: The owners have a new source of illegal income, the current level of business isn't enough to turn that cash clean and useable without raising some eyebrows. Bring in Ramsey, they get a revamp, they get a temporary boost in sales related to people seeing it on TV and wanting to eat there, more actual business = more you can fudge. "oh yeah IRS, we did $50K a month right after the show, the publicity was great! I mean we have a ton of $5-$10 baked goods so a lot of people were paying in cash"

Whenever I see a bar that's cash only, I can only think one of two things, the owners are so super cheap and just dicks, or they are laundering money. You had to pay 2% on beer that you just sold to me on a 200% markup? boo-hoo.

Yep. Good restaurant. Kitchen Nightmares provided them nothing of value and succeeded in making them look like fools even if most of it was manufactured. For instance, the fridge full of rotting food: the producers made them turn the fridge off so the lights and equipment could be plugged into the restaurant's circuit without tripping the breaker. Amazing that food spoils when not refrigerated. Sure, you could give the owners a hard time for not anticipating this but it's not like having rotting food in the fridge is a normal occurrence for them.


Um... actually, I would give the owners a hard time for not realizing that turning off the fridge would be bad for food.  It's supposed to be a big part of their job. I mean, duh.

Yeah, I don't believe that for a second. Nobody would turn off their fridge. And if they did, when Gordon asked why they have rotting food they'd say, "Because you made us turn it off."

As a veteran server at restaurants from the 2nd busiest Denny's in CA to fine dining in Fairfield County, CT I have tons of stories to tell. Even as a young server I would not have taken that kind of shiat from my boss. I had a "manager" chew me out in front of a crowded dining room when I didn't take every last fork and knife off a table when clearing empty plates. They were having coffee and in her mind I didn't hustle them out fast enough. I took off my apron, handed it to her, and headed for my car keys. She ran after me in a panic, begging me not to leave (as IF she could have handled the tables I was walking away from).I told her in no uncertain terms that it was unacceptable and unprofessional to cause a scene in front of customers, and returned to the floor. I got huge tips from customers who felt sorry for me. I left shortly thereafter, and the place went under. So yeah, her going off on the server royally pissed me off. Been there, done that, have the apron.

Dear guy who goes to Yanni's (sorry too lazy to find you in the thread). I saw that episode. And I thought that family was actually pretty cool. I think most people get the overblown nature of the 'reality show'. It was one of the places I googled immediately after watching to see how they were doing. I'm almost ALWAYS rooting for the place I'm watching, and the people I'm watching.

But seriously if they're claiming the fridge bullshiat, that's the lies they're telling people in the neighborhood so they don't get freaked out. I'm totally willing to believe they would NEVER have served that spoiled food. But that shiat didn't spoil overnight. You unplug a fridge, ESPECIALLY one of those industrial ones...shiat stays cold and fresh enough to use for 24 hours, easy. But even assuming a fridge that had the plug pulled...and was left OPEN somehow...again it doesn't go that bad within a day. Or two. It takes weeks.

All of us have been lazy about that shiat. We'd never cook it, but most people have had crap rot in their fridge. Some of my fridge rot started petitioning for rights not long ago.

But it's a bit worse when they KNOW he's coming and don't have that shiat all cleaned out. I'm sure with a biz it's hard to find time, but jeezus don't they see the show?

Additionally there have been MANY clean kitchens. And there was even one instance where Gordon cleaned the plate, and took just bones back to the kitchen because the food was actually REALLY good. (Mama's Soul Shack, UK) So when he eats something and barfs, I'm inclined to believe it. When he says the shiat has been in their fridge spoiled for WEEKS, I think he knows his shiat. Especially since that man can look at meat across a room and tell it's overdone, and I don't think anyone has ever snuck frozen food past him.

I wouldn't make him risotto, even if I could cook.

The My Little Pony Killer: Here's the totes awesome Greek restaurant whose owners were too stupid to keep their food refrigerated.


I'll have you know that the crew that came in to set up the filming for the show shut the power off for two days to the whole restaurant in the course of setting up for the shoot and then made a huge showing of the spoiled food in the cooler. They spoiled about $2500 worth of meat and prepped sauces. I know Peter VERY well and have for close to 22 years now. His sister was a good friend of mine. RIP Kat.

Yeah, he can be a son of a biatch in the kitchen, but they make the best Calamari in Seattle. They do some amazing shiat in a kitchen that isn't much bigger than a phone booth. I have yet to meet a real Greek who has anything negative to say about the food in that place. Their waitstaff tends to stick around for years, and no, it isn't just his family. Bear in mind his food costs have nearly tripled in the last 10 years and the health insurance package they used to offer is nearly 10 times what it was in the late 1990s while he's not raised his prices much. His restaurant survived when so many others in the area went under in the mid 2000s.

So, you're pretty much full of shiat.
 
2013-05-15 10:51:27 PM  
Now that I've watched the show in its entirety all I can say is fark Amy and Samy, what a couple of pretentious douchebags.
If they act like that to people they need (customers) then I can only imagine their attitudes with people on a daily basis outside the restaurant.
I don't wish their business to just fold, but fold HARD.
I also hope something happens where they are forced to retroactively reimburse ALL the tips they illegally withheld and get some punishment for that.
And perhaps look up the skeletons in Gangster Samy's closet and send Crazy Amy to the nuthouse.
Those are two pathetic people. Next time I'm near Scottsdale I hope to drive by there and see that it closed down.

The UK version of show called "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares" is much better. It's far less focused on interpersonal drama and much more on the specific techniques needed to fix the restaurants. Almost like a Modern Marvels of bad restaurants. The episodes are a few years old now as I don't think he does the UK show any longer, but they can all be found on 'the bay'.

I don't usually watch the US version, but the Crazy Amy ep was great. It's much more like the UK version of the show. In at least one case, he similarly walked out on a restauranteur who refused to listen at all. (season 5, ep 2)

No, the RESTAURANT OWNERS WHO AGREED TO HAVING THEIR STUFF TURNED OFF spoiled the food.

They could have just as easily told Ramsay and his crew to rent generators if they needed the power.  They cannot honestly MAKE THE DECISION TO TURN OFF THEIR OWN REFRIGERATORS and then have the gall to turn around and blame that on somebody else.

I would not go within spitting distance of that restaurant.  What a bunch of disgusting, stupid pigs.

RickN99: TheSwizz: I usually watch Kitchen Nightmares on Netflix to kill time.  I may have to locate this one for immediate viewing.

I had never seen any episodes of the show before but I sought this one out after reading yesterday's threads.  Well worth the time.


Hopefully you didn't look too long.  It's embedded in the story.

Vodka Zombie: wildcardjack: RickN99: Endive Wombat: 1. If this place isn't a money laundering operation, I don't know what is.

I wouldn't think a normal strategy for concealing a money-laundering operation was to request to be on a national TV show showing how you run your operation.

It's to give cover for all the real wash shops. Everyone's looking at this one instead of the italian place that doesn't even serve decent pizza.

Man...  I miss the pizzeria by my old house that was shut down as a money-laundering outfit.  As criminal as their business was, they did make a damn good pizza.


We had one around here too.  Somehow they ended up going legit...and the food still sucks.

sethen320: We had one around here too. Somehow they ended up going legit...and the food still sucks.


There are all kinds of restaurants / prepared food take-outs around that can only be money laundries.

There's one place I drove by every day that never had a single customer, stayed open for half a decade.  A handful might be a 'rich idiot' business, or 'keep the wife busy' business, but not all of them.

Restaurants seem the go-to business for those trying to clean up dirty money.

It gets even better.  Now they have announced (via a public relations person) that there is going to be a grand relaunch of the restaurant on May 21, where they will give a press conference.  They want to tell "their side of the story", and they also want people to come out and tell them how good their food is and how bad Ramsey and the internet haters are.

Sounds like a blast.

I don't watch reality shows, but I went ahead and watched this one. It gave me flashbacks to my ex. Amy is definitely crazier and more delusional than my ex, but it's the same sort of behavior (luckily, without the religious self-righteousness.) I know what it's like to be in that situation.

Action - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Response
Offer minor criticism                          Total denial, building up to outrage and full-blown argument
Point out a misdeed                          Indignant fury, roundabout misdirection, impossible/unlikely excuses
Ask a question                                  25% chance of being construed as "snotty" or "insulting". See previous.
Try to help out                                  45% chance of being refused because of some unknown, secret reason.
Actually do help out                          75% chance of being told you're doing it wrong/being insulted.
Offer a compliment                           50/50 split: Freak out due to paranoid misinterpretation or gloating.
Make a positive suggestion              Smug, disdainful smirk with dismissive right-eye squint.
Deliver glowing praise                      Smug, self-satisfied smirk with "vindicated chin elevation."
Prove you're right                             Near-tearful, angry meltdown followed by frustrated, dramatic walk-out.

I honestly don't know if I'll be able to sleep tonight after watching that, and I  completely understandwhy Samy didn't like to tell Amy when a customer had a criticism or complaint, and why he chose to defend her when he knew she was completely wrong...  He's afraid of her, too. It's safer to spare her the bad news and side with her when she gets any.

A person like that... Well, let me just put it this way:

If you watch the British version of this, you'll see that Ramsay really does try to help the owners fix their restaurants.  I usually can't watch the US version, as Ramsay even admits that the US producers artificially amp up the drama and focus on interpersonal relationships rather than the food.

They didn't have to for this episode.  If anything, the producers were forced to deescalate the drama.   http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1eegnm/former_waitress_katy_cip r iano_from_amys_baking/c9zgars

To be fair, I've only really ever seen clips of him flipping the fark out on someone.  Out of context.  And that's where my opinion of him comes from.  So if he usually treats servers like human beings, then I'm forced to revise my opinion of him and ask what the people he flipped out on did to deserve it.

xaks: The problem isn't how good is your food. There's a lot of folks that can make really good chow that fail miserably.

How good a manager are you? How good a boss? How good a negotiator?

How good a financial planner? How good at multitasking?

How good a conflict resolver? How good at managing 10 OTHER people's jobs while doing your own?

How good a designer are you? How good a personal trainer/dietician?

How good a sterilizer/sanitizer/clean freak are you?

How well can you manage a kindergarten classroom? While doing any five of the above listed? While cooking for 50?

These are just some of the skills needed to run a successful solo restaurant.


I "smarted" this. I've never worked in the food biz, but everyone I know that has are good tippers, so I follow their lead. It has to be the most "people tell me I'm good at this" - bam! 'Slapped against the head with the iron skillet of reality' dreams there are.

Deathfrogg: The My Little Pony Killer: Here's the totes awesome Greek restaurant whose owners were too stupid to keep their food refrigerated.

I'll have you know that the crew that came in to set up the filming for the show shut the power off for two days to the whole restaurant in the course of setting up for the shoot and then made a huge showing of the spoiled food in the cooler. They spoiled about $2500 worth of meat and prepped sauces. I know Peter VERY well and have for close to 22 years now. His sister was a good friend of mine. RIP Kat.

Yeah, he can be a son of a biatch in the kitchen, but they make the best Calamari in Seattle. They do some amazing shiat in a kitchen that isn't much bigger than a phone booth. I have yet to meet a real Greek who has anything negative to say about the food in that place. Their waitstaff tends to stick around for years, and no, it isn't just his family. Bear in mind his food costs have nearly tripled in the last 10 years and the health insurance package they used to offer is nearly 10 times what it was in the late 1990s while he's not raised his prices much. His restaurant survived when so many others in the area went under in the mid 2000s.

So, you're pretty much full of shiat.


Some stuff in the fridge went bad. It happens. No, they wouldn't have served it. But this whole shutting off the power business is a flimsy lie.

Burned by being so desperate for publicity, then.  If his food really was that good, he wouldn't need to have invited a rockstar chef to fark everything up and make a spectacle.

This hideous hose-beast deliberately over-spiced a customer's dish after he sent it back, declaring ON NATIONAL TV THAT SHE HOPES IT HURTS HIM. And that was her apparently on her best behaviour knowing she was being filmed.

There's not a single thing she can say in a press conference that is going to turn around the damage she has already done to her restaurant's reputation.

I drank an entire bottle of this alchohol called Tattoo. It dyes the shiat out of your teeth and tounge. (in this case, blue). The next morning I peed normal, so I was wondering where the blue went. Well it went to my poo. I pooped blue for a week. It started off a dark navy blue, and gradualy lightened up to a sky and then baby powder blue.


Now my life's mission is to find this magical substance...

Watched the first few minutes, and I think I saw my first unscripted reality fight.

Usually, they have a few "producers" built like tanks run out from the sides to break things up. When Samy started to touch and grab at the customer the day before, some scrawny guy with an earpiece intervened.

The show .had NO idea the level of the crazy they were involved with. No wonder they paid off everyone's dinner when the place shut down.

The only thing that would have been more epic is if Samy went off on Gordon and they were unprepared.

Waldo Pepper: Ramsy played up the cakes at the beginning. I wouldn't doubt if someone from the show how scoped out the place before hand and already knew the desserts were shipped in from another source. The company that makes those desserts should contact Ramsey seeing how much he loved that cake.

it seems to be the night before Ramsey arrived also seemed to be a bit of a setup with all the issues.

I wonder how much of what they shot they couldn't use.


Oh yeah...For sure...He was totally going to flip it around on them.  Look at that kitchen, that is not a bakers kitchen.  There is no way in hell that they make those in house.

My favorite of favorites was at the end of the final sit down, when Ramsey asks her if they have really gone through over 50 staff. She denies it and gets all defensive. Then Samy, for reasons known only to himself, says that it is actually more than 100.  Cue deer in headlights moment, followed by intense thirst as she gets up to find water.

Question: Is it Botox that prevents her face from moving very much?

SCOTTSDALE, AZ. MAY 15, 2013 -- Amy's Baking Company will host a Grand Re-Opening on Tuesday night, May 21, following unflattering portrayals on national television.

Customers will be able to decide who is correct: a famous celebrity chef or the marketplace that has supported the small, locally-owned business for six years. 

When re-opened, a portion of proceeds will benefit a charity organized to bring awareness to cyber bullying. 

Seating is limited. Reservations may be made by emailing s­jones[nospam-﹫-backwards]rpn­yll­are­som­e­so­r­*com

Diners will also have the opportunity to meet, and judge for themselves the character of owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo, who have devoted their lives to and earn their living from their small restaurant. The Bouzaglos have been married for 10 years, after Sammy emigrated from Israel. 

The owners will likely be holding a press conference before the Grand Re-Opening and answer falsehoods depicted on a reality television show, including assertions that the restaurant confiscates tips from servers. 

In fact, wait staff is paid $8-$14 per hour, two and half to nearly five times the standard hourly wage for servers. 

Questions will also be answered about what happened to their Facebook page. 

Amy's Baking Company was recently featured on the hit PBS show "Check Please" and has received A+ reports from CBS 5 for kitchen preparedness. 

"We are very upset by what has taken place, apologize about the acrimony that has ensued but now must fight back to save our business. We hope and believe much good can result from what has transpired. We ask the public to keep an open mind as we begin to tell our side of the story," Samy Bouzaglo said.

That's seriously up for debate, fact-wise, but the general gist of it is the same (check his Wiki or the team page he claims to have played for) : the boy can handle himself, and its his show, so if he wants a little eye-candy time for the ladies, that's his call.

Yeah, the never confiscated tips from servers! They never intended the servers to get tips in the first place!

Also, $8 is not nearly 2.5 times what the average server makes after tips, it's about 1 times what they make.

On the other hand, there are for more mentally ill people than there are actors this convincing.

The difference between them and the Soup Nazi is that his soup was so good it was worth dealing with his attitude.

The My Little Pony Killer: verbal_jizm: ArgusRun: verbal_jizm: I was going to respond that, after seeing what this farked up show did to my local Greek restaurant that the producers probably screwed these people over, but there's no way producers invented that. Holy crap. They didn't have to stage a thing here.

Yanni's?

Check's profile.  Yanni's.

The crying girl was spectacular.

Yep. Good restaurant. Kitchen Nightmares provided them nothing of value and succeeded in making them look like fools even if most of it was manufactured. For instance, the fridge full of rotting food: the producers made them turn the fridge off so the lights and equipment could be plugged into the restaurant's circuit without tripping the breaker. Amazing that food spoils when not refrigerated. Sure, you could give the owners a hard time for not anticipating this but it's not like having rotting food in the fridge is a normal occurrence for them.

Um... actually, I would give the owners a hard time for not realizing that turning off the fridge would be bad for food.  It's supposed to be a big part of their job. I mean, duh.


Not to mention nothing was labled.  NOTHING.  That is just plain wrong.

Now if you have any right to keep that pair between your legs, you'd best go into that back room and tell Princess PMS there that she'd better get her shiat straight and get it straight right now! Because as God is my witness, neither of you dysfunctional meat sleeves will want ME going back there and bringing down the rain! You will not take those tips! You will not pick fights with the customers!

In fact, wait staff is paid $8-$14 per hour, two and half to nearly five times the standard hourly wage for servers.

Yeah, the never confiscated tips from servers! They never intended the servers to get tips in the first place!

Also, $8 is not nearly 2.5 times what the average server makes after tips, it's about 1 times what they make.


I love how since they pay $8-$14/hour, that means it's okay to confiscate tips!

ferretman: bborchar: It gets even better.  Now they have announced (via a public relations person) that there is going to be a grand relaunch of the restaurant on May 21, where they will give a press conference.  They want to tell "their side of the story", and they also want people to come out and tell them how good their food is and how bad Ramsey and the internet haters are.

Sounds like a blast.

Oh boy.....this will be interesting....


it worked for Chik-fil-A...  they need to make more of a point of how the 'internet haters' are godless atheists and muslims and gheys and such and that's why they are tearing down their 'bistro'...  because their 'bistro' is a shining beacon of Faith and Love dedicated to God and Jesus and wholesome monogamous wealthy playboy/whore marriage.... they'll have 'persecuted christians' lined up waiting to get in...

maybe throw in a big 'we built this!' sign and some 'nobama' stickers... get congressman Dan Quayle's kid to make a personal appearance for a tea party rally in their parking lot, raffle of a bushmaster to raise money for their 'legal defense fund' against the attacks from Obama's anti-business policies... they're golden.

I took a redshiat once, scared the hell out of me.

I drank an entire bottle of this alchohol called Tattoo. It dyes the shiat out of your teeth and tounge. (in this case, blue). The next morning I peed normal, so I was wondering where the blue went. Well it went to my poo. I pooped blue for a week. It started off a dark navy blue, and gradualy lightened up to a sky and then baby powder blue.

Now my life's mission is to find this magical substance...


If you want the same fun effects without the search, just eat several bowls of Fruit Loops in a day. The kaleidoscope that comes out the next couple of days is very interesting.

I'm guessing it was somehow related to their apparent anti-abortion stance, and some people probably criticized them for that, and of course, to people like that, anyone who isn't rabidly anti-abortion must be a "slut"! Though, it looks like this particular person they replied to was just a random bystander who got caught up in their insane rage, and didn't actually say anything to incite them at all... I'm guessing they've lost at least one potential new customer there, anyway...

JusticeandIndependence: The My Little Pony Killer: verbal_jizm: ArgusRun: verbal_jizm: I was going to respond that, after seeing what this farked up show did to my local Greek restaurant that the producers probably screwed these people over, but there's no way producers invented that. Holy crap. They didn't have to stage a thing here.

Yanni's?

Check's profile.  Yanni's.

The crying girl was spectacular.

Yep. Good restaurant. Kitchen Nightmares provided them nothing of value and succeeded in making them look like fools even if most of it was manufactured. For instance, the fridge full of rotting food: the producers made them turn the fridge off so the lights and equipment could be plugged into the restaurant's circuit without tripping the breaker. Amazing that food spoils when not refrigerated. Sure, you could give the owners a hard time for not anticipating this but it's not like having rotting food in the fridge is a normal occurrence for them.

Um... actually, I would give the owners a hard time for not realizing that turning off the fridge would be bad for food.  It's supposed to be a big part of their job. I mean, duh.

Not to mention nothing was labled.  NOTHING.  That is just plain wrong.


I think they were the same kitchen with OPEN tubs of chopped parsley.

Captain Crunch crunchberries just berries...or fruity pebbles.

PsyLord: So has anyone figured out where they get their cakes and baked goods from?


this would be my bet:
Au Petit Four

At its new location (it recently relocated from Phoenix), this French cafe and bakery still serves its acclaimed baked goods, including plain and chocolate croissants ($2.95 and $3.25), baguettes ($4.50), tarts ($4.50), napoleons and eclairs ($5.50) and petit fours ($2.50 each; $24 dozen).

Details: 7217 E. Fourth Ave., Scottsdale. 480-946-3834,

Use can use fresh roasted beets to see how fast food moves through your system.

When it looks like you pounded out a 2 lb blood clot, the beets have passed.

A girl I work with that has food allergies told me this.

I tested it.

About 3.5 - 4.0 hrs in case you are wondering.

TV's Vinnie: What I would gladly give if R Lee Ermey stepped into Gordon's shoes for one day during that shoot.

[wfiles.brothersoft.com image 492x368]
"Now you listen to me and you listen good, Twinkletoes! These people eating here have worked their asses off all day for their paycheck. Unlike a bottom-feeding jackass like you who raked in other people's money while sucking on his hookah all day! They deserve to have a good meal that they paid for and not this undercooked Alpo you're hurling at them! Now if you have any right to keep that pair between your legs, you'd best go into that back room and tell Princess PMS there that she'd better get her shiat straight and get it straight right now! Because as God is my witness, neither of you dysfunctional meat sleeves will want ME going back there and bringing down the rain! You will not take those tips! You will not pick fights with the customers! You will not play any more of this monkey sh*t any longer or will bring in a FLAME THROWER and burn this whole shiat shack down to the ground myself and drag you by your ball-sack straight down to Gitmo! DO WE HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING???"


*applause*

That, sir, is one of the most beautiful rants I've ever seen. I'm tearing up. Magnificent.

RandomRandom: The UK version of show called "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares" is much better. It's far less focused on interpersonal drama and much more on the specific techniques needed to fix the restaurants. Almost like a Modern Marvels of bad restaurants. The episodes are a few years old now as I don't think he does the UK show any longer, but they can all be found on 'the bay'.

I don't usually watch the US version, but the Crazy Amy ep was great. It's much more like the UK version of the show. In at least one case, he similarly walked out on a restauranteur who refused to listen at all. (season 5, ep 2)

BTW. Has anyone posted this?

http://www.amysbakingcompany.com

The UK version is the best one while the US version is so bad it's good or in this case, so good, it's beautiful.


And the book is even better! You've probably never heard of it.

Dude, have you even seen their support page on Facebook?

It's chock full of eagles, flags, Pat Tilman, pics of the two of them, soldiers, Mitt Romney with the words "We did build this!", photos of food, ridiculous tabloid headlines about Gordon Ramsay, and this for some reason (but the comment is priceless):

I checked out the Wings of a Dove coffee shop link that they have on their support page. Apparently there is no such thing in Yonkers so I posted this:
.
"Interesting that the phone number is for the Brighton & Hove City Council in the UK. "Wings of a Dove" is the name of a now closed coffee shop in the UK that refused to serve servicemen because they considered all military to be murderers. Real compassionate there."

The response:
"It's my cell phone number. Soldiers Abortionists. Same thing. Baby killers."

So, they make a big deal out of supporting 'Murica and the troops, but also support an abortion coffee place that hates troops and refuses to serve servicemen and women.
