    Michael blamed it all on the owners. Ramey thought they were a cute couple and in love and he obviously didn't want to tell them that they were both inept and not at all into ownership. Mi said that you can tell that he just expected to show up and make money. People spent hours at the place and still weren't getting food and the owner was hiding.

    The wife going shopping at 6pm, which is the busiest time -- are you kidding me??

    By teh way, according to Randy (a former chef), it's the OWNERS who make the final decision of where to buy food. The frozen food was probably what the owner wnated to buy. Nothing in teh place was fresh and all the things that they had to work with were poor. Randy said when he saw mismatched dishes and cheap glasses, he knew the owner was more concerned about cutting corners than making it work.

    I may not be the smartest turnip on the truck, but I KNOW I'm smarter than most of these restaurant owners who screw themselves so badly. Geez...these owners had never worked in any sort of food business before. The husband hid all the time, and was afraid to speak up and control his crew as he should have. Pinto, the chef, would have been told to hit the road long ago, if I were owner of the place.

    As for cutting corners, common sense should tell people that if they don't have enough capital to invest in running a restaurant business, while calling themselves fine dining or whatever...then people should not be opening restaurants.

    Here in the small town of Greenbrier (where I live)...I've seen countless mom-and-pop food places open up -- Mexican, Chinese, Chinese-run donut shop, pizza and Italian -- only to end up closing down within a year due to the ineptness of the owners in running the places. Opening up a business, and establishing a successful business, is no walk in the park. A lot of sweat and worry must go into a business to get it going properly.

    :wave: Don't forget...a new episode of Kitchen Nightmares airs on Wednesday I think (it may actually be Thursday, I don't have the guide in front of me at the moment). Anyhow...look for it.
