I have to admit that I'm enjoying every last drop of watching Princess PMS getting PWNED on a global scale.

The only thing that worries me is that Hollywood, in their utter seething contempt at all Americans,  might give these two a reality show so they can act snotty at humanity for years.

Case in Point: "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Child". I would like to know who on this planet outside of a network executive's own ass wanted this show to be made!

I was going to ask Not Amy who to write the check to for the cyber-bullying charity started by 9/11 survivors.  She's twisted herself into pretzels to not name the charity so I figured I'd ask if it would be easier to write it out to her and her  eunuch husband. Damn, Simpsons Barbie blocked me from posting on her page, and all I did was (as nicely as I could) suggest she come here and defend herself.  I guess she sensed a trap - scared of fark.

Anyone seen the 80s movie "Big Business"?  She's the upper crust twin to white trash Jennifer Petkov.  And she just cannot keep her Mr Limpet-looking mouth shut.  I am loving seeing this insane biatch being poked by a stick, and her continual gnashing at that stick.

Since I am blocked, and my passive-aggressive tactic has been stymied, please, poke her for me.  Go to the "I support Amy's Baking Company Bakery Boutique & Bistro 100 percent" FB page.  I want to see this biatch implode.

Yeah, I have a life, but I have worked my ass off as a server for many hours of my life and this foray of watching their meltdown amuses me and is little sweat off my back.  I want to see her and her loudmouthed puss husband go down on behalf of those employees they abused.

Just watched the episode after reading all the comments over the last day or so.

It was all the hype had said and more. When you have Gordon Ramsey, a chef with twelve Michelin stars, being filmed for a show watched by millions, and you still make him wait an hour for a pizza, then you have problems. That the pizza is still undercooked after all that time is just icing on the cake.  If this is them on their best behaviour because of the cameras....

I think the couple enable each other and back each other's fantasy opinion up. I assume he does it so he carries on getting laid and she does it so he carries on funding her dream restaurant.

FTFA: 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.


Restaurant/bar owners (thieves in this case, and many, many others) have been doing this for decades. "We pay you $X per hour, which is way more than anyone else would pay you elsewhere. We're being unbelievably generous in doing that for YOU! Now, we're gonna pool all of the tips we took from the tables/credit cards, and divide that equally amongst all servers, and then tip the bussers, bar-backs and line cooks appropriately. You'll still make out like a bandit!"

Then, after you go for drinks or have a smoke session with your co-workers, you find that between 50-80% of the tip amounts received vanish....even after the tip-outs were doled out to your co-workers.

They honestly believed that their food is amazingly good and that the only reason they get bad reviews is because of "haters".  They ignored the fact that every other restaurant on KN was a disaster at some level and genuinely thought Gordon was going to come in and agree with them that their food is perfect, thus restoring their pristine reputation and shutting down all the "haters".  Needless to say, they didn't get quite the result they were hoping for.

If you watch the episode, toward the beginning, when they show Gordon around, you can see that they are absolutely confident in everything and that the only problem they see is the "haters" and "bullies".  It's only after Gordon starts to eat Amy's cooking and talk to the staff that things start to unravel.

First, the husband owner stated that they paid them a salary, but also admitted taking 100% of the tips. 

Second, when I leave a tip it is intended for the wait staff.  Under no circumstances would I ever leave a tip if I know the owners were going to take 100% of it.  When the owners take tips left for their employees they are stealing their employee's money, as much as any random person would be if they swiped the tips left for the wait staff off from the table before they were collected.

That was bitter and nasty. As a chef, I have to say, I like it. FOH and Back of House have to stick together, especially against crazy ass owners. Too damn many out there. I did my stint in Phoenix, in the Biltmore area, as well as in Peoria, before I hooked up with Glendale Arena and the Coyotes. This is an area that is rife with scumbags who absolutely are miserable SOBs to work for, and the labor laws in AZ are a joke. Don't get me wrong, Mass has more than a few asshats, but Maricopa has a special breed who are used to folks falling over themselves to be doormats, and with labor as cheap as it is, because so many folks employ illegal labor, there is always a ready supply of idiots to keep rolling through the door to take up a spot on the floor or behind the line...

Never gonna happen. At the beginning of the episode, Samy said that he has never found anyone that he thinks is reliable, which I think is BS because everyone can see that the real reason no chefs are hired is because Amy forbids it.

As far as she's concerned, this joint is nothing but her personal big-girl version of an EZ-Bake Oven, and while she's playing Super-Chef, anyone who doesn't love her food is a hater who's in rebellion against God.

No!  You're missing the glory of this moment.  Cat lady does ALL the cooking.  Solo.  And she can't keep up when there are only 4 tables full in her joint.

Imagine the level and quality of psycho drama that will be in that kitchen with a full house!  Customers waiting 2 hours for a salad.  Cat lady getting farther and farther in the weeds.  Cutting corners (more).  Food getting worse and worse as the evening goes on...

I'm sorry, but I'd pay for a crappy meal just to watch that live.  I would.

After watching Kitchen Nightmare for a long time and I will say this, Gordon Ramsay will always say your food taste like craps. PERIOD! Not sure why people dont get it in their farked up head.

He said the dessert was good. Of course, the real pastry chef remains unknown.

This is the part that still makes me wonder. All the /b/ and facebook and twitter and folks that have looked over this trainwreck, and not one has figured out who makes the pastries that Gordon actually said were good? That's possibly the most important part of this whole thing! How has noone tracked this down yet?

Based on the size of their kitchen, selection of deserts, number of staff, and Amy's skill at anything else culinary, I'm going to say that's largely outside the realm of probability.

My CSB was one visit I made about a decade ago to the DDLR in San Diego during Comic-Con 01. Lots of people from all over the world in the joint, including two somewhat well-dressed 40-something asian guys.

Along comes the waiter with two straws stuck into his upper lip, walks up behind them with squinty eyes and grabs them both in a bear hug and starts yelling "WASABEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!" most of the room turned their heads away in a "I really don't want to be witnessing this" feel, while some were openly pissed enough to almost consider getting up from their tables to bust the waiter's face open.

There's DDLR non-PC, and then there's KKK cross-burning non-PC.

For the rest of the night, the waiter was going around to each table and profusely apologizing to every diner, probably because the boss made him do that before he fired the bigot after his shift was done that night.

Well the ones that are usually on there are on a last ditch effort, "please save me", level of desperation. Most don't survive even after being visited.

These dumbasses called Ramsay because they wanted reassurance that they were doing everything right, and all those yelp wannabe food critics were wrong about everything. Turns out they're horrible people with a horrible restaurant, and Ramsay told them that. Then he walked out because they refused to be helped.

This restaurant isn't strapped for cash, and I think it's because the husband is a sugar daddy who's feeding thousands of dollars into a restaurant his "trophy" wife wanted to own. He keeps the doors open, and she keeps her legs open.

That's some damned fine reporting.

Introduce the interview segment by saying you have someone who "would NOT want to set foot in the restaurant again!", then wrap up the interview with her saying that she'd like to get a reservation there.

Felgraf: DrForrester: Way to avoid mentioning the Reddit AMA.

Wait what? Where?!



http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1eegnm/former_waitress_katy_ci pr iano_from_amys_baking/

Katy Cipriano answered a massive amount of questions there. One of the better IAmA/AMA's I've seen.  Though, be aware, there were quite a few entire threads that got deleted for some reason or another. I think moderators on Reddit got some complaints about slander or something, though I'm sure someone here has better details about what went down with that.

I sincerely hope these excuses for people don't actually become successful as a result of their awful personalities. The deserve nothing less than national ridicule but not a single penny in income. I'd like to think we as a people know enough to laugh with our words and not our wallets.

But we as a people also made Snooki famous.

People are stupid. You make a place known for sucking and you get a line around the block.

I hate stupid people.

boogerwolf: I was hoping the article would recap the situation.

Recap anyone?


People who don't like their food (i.e. most customers) just don't know how to eat.

i was pleasantly surprised that she said on the reddit chat that despite the editing and heavy use of music, pretty much everything happened as we saw it, and that it wasn't staged.

FlashHarry: radarlove: Oh, I'm sure they'll be on their best behavior.  But somehow I doubt their best behavior will be good enough, or that they will keep up the facade for long.

God I hope there are cameras there.

they were on their best behavior for gordon ramsay! they thought he was going to set the record straight and tell everyone that her food was amazing!


Well, he thought their desserts were amazing.

Which isn't a surprise since they buy them from elsewhere and repackage as their own

I really hope that for everyone's sake their restaurant is currently filled with internet trolls, and that they skip on the bill, leaving the owners with no real patrons and heaping helpings of schadenfreude to slurp down.

Those idiots hired a PR firm to dump MORE money into that shiathole?  If they didn't listen to a single word Ramsey said, why would they pay for advice?

If things get crazy you know someone will pull out their cell phone and start recording.
