Kitchen Nightmares Recap for 11/20/2023

-This week on Fox’s Kitchen Nightmares, we are in Yonkers, New York visiting El Cantito. It is a family Puerto Rican restaurant run by siblings Debbie and Julio.

-The restaurant opened in 2020, right before the pandemic hit. When they were finally able to reopen, they had trouble keeping afloat. Food quality is a mess, things are breaking down and they are unable to pay a staff to help. They are also going into debt trying to keep the place in business.

-Chef Gordon Ramsay visits to help owner Debbie and Chef Julio out. He also tastes their food, which is not up to his standards.

-Things only get worse when Chef Ramsay discovers that the restaurant is serving customers raw chicken. He talks to Debbie and Chef Julio in order to get them to see the error of their ways.

-Chef Ramsay wants them to raise their standards and regain the love they had for their restaurant. He plans on coming back the next day to see how they run a dinner service.

-When the time comes to do the dinner service, Chef Ramsay is on hand to help out. He notices that the staff is quiet and that the diners are not happy with their food. Things get even worse when he notices Chef Julio using water to defrost seafood. He tries to talk to him about his lack of work ethic….which causes Chef Julio to cry.
