Plot Synopsis

Hot-tempered chef Gordon Ramsay travels the country helping failing restaurants turn things around. With his unique blend of tough love confrontations and inspirational leadership he teaches clueless business owners how to turn a deserted dining room into the most sought-after reservation in town in only a week. Whether he changes the restaurant's operations, updates the menu or gives the establishment a complete makeover, Chef Ramsay delves deep into the inner workings of each eatery to transform it into a money-making business. Season 5 opened on October 26, 2012 at 8pm ET with the first part of a two-part episode, chronicling Chef Ramsay's visit to La Galleria 33 in Boston, where he forces the owners to confront their staff and reclaim control of the restaurant. KITCHEN NIGHTMARES returns for its sixth season on Friday, April 11, 2014 at 8pm ET/PT on Fox, with back-to-back new episodes. In the Season 6 premiere, Gordon pays a follow-up visit to Amy's Baking Company, where he faced off against its defiant owners who then took to social media to defend themselves. In the night's second episode, Gordon helps the owner of Pantaleon's, a Denver pizzeria. For the rest of Season 6, Gordon visits struggling restaurants in: Queens, NY; Easton, PA; Arvada, CO; Woodland Park, CO; and Redondo Beach, CA. Plus, he'll also re-visit La Galleria 33 in Boston, MA; the Olde Hitching Post in Hanson, MA; and Prohibition Gastropub in Everett, WA.
On Friday, September 12, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT, Fox closed down KITCHEN NIGHTMARES with a special episode, "Revisited," as Ramsay revisits three eateries: La Galleria, the Olde Hitching Post and the Prohibition Gastropub.
