Ram­say’s Kitchen Night­mares

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Friends re­cently spoiled them­selves and booked din­ner at Gor­don Ransay’s Maze restau­rant in New York. They said it was the most dis­ap­point­ing, over­priced, unin­spir­ing ex­pe­ri­ence they’d had. I keep that in mind when I watch the Bri­tish celeb chef tear­ing an­other chef to pieces. Hav­ing said that, he’s jus­ti­fied in this episode. Ram­say vis­its Chappy’s in Nashville, Ten­nessee. Owner-chef Chappy has been serv­ing a New Or­leans menu since 2006, but cus­tomer num­bers are dwin­dling and meals keep be­ing sent back. He reck­ons they just don’t understand the food, but when the 15 “spe­cials” haven’t changed in nine years and the same dish costs $8.95 at lunch but $29.95 at din­ner, well, Ram­say rightly ex­plodes.
