The Park Restaurant and Bar was an Oak Park, California restaurant featured on Season 3 of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back. Though the The Park Restaurant and Bar 24 Hours to Hell and Back episode aired in February 2020, the actual filming and visit from Gordon Ramsay took place all the way back in October 2019. It was Season 3 Episode 7.
The Park Restaurant and Bar is located in Oak Park, California, which was an area that was heavily impacted by the California wildfires.
The owners are Kirin and Angelika Stone. They lost their home in the fire, and the restaurant’s stress caused their marriage trouble.
Having been open for only three years, they are now at risk of losing the business.
They could no longer afford to pay a chef or a manager.
Kirin is never around as he hosts a TV show and does construction projects.
Angelika hides in the office when Kirin is out of the restaurant.
Both are hard to get a hold of, and everyone thinks Katie is the manager.
Gordon disguises himself as a fireman. He sends in former Patriots superstar Rob Gronkowski as a distraction.
Gronk and his table order the restaurant’s staples like oysters, pizza, and wings.
The food comes out greasy. The wings taste terrible.
Gordon’s table waits at least forty-five minutes for their food.
Kirin brings out the kitchen staff, and Gordon removes his disguise.
Gordon then brings the customers and staff out to the Hell on Wheels Truck.
They are shown hidden footage of the dirty kitchen, meat in blood, and owners drinking in the restaurant.
Kirin gets very defensive and begins making excuses. Katie is the one in charge as she is there day today.
They feel abandoned because there is no leadership. They say Kirin acts like everything is ok in the restaurant when it is not.
When Kirin is told how his staff feels, he gets defensive again.
Kirin swears the kitchen is cleaned nightly, but Gordon shows him the grease build-up amount.
They have raw chicken and cooked chicken mixed.
This practice contaminates the cooked part and is highly dangerous.
The chefs start to clean the kitchen and find meat soaking in blood.
Chefs Kevin and Mark head to the Hell on Wheels Truck to train on the menu for the restaurant.
Kevin wants to attend culinary school to become a chef.
Gordon meets with Angelika next, who is not happy. They are spending too much time away from their family.
Things are so bad that she doesn’t know if they can pay next month’s rent.
Gordon’s team tells him that both chefs are still nervous.
Gordon holds a competition with two local chefs, and the winner will be hired as the head chef. G
ronk returns to help, and Ozzy is the winner.
Goron and Kirin talk, and Gordon says that Angelika needs to leave the restaurant to take care of their family and save the marriage.
Kirin lets Angelika know he wants to hire a general manager to help her out.
Everyone is happy during the relaunch. The customers love the new decor.
Ozzy and Kevin are in the kitchen because Chef Mark is sick.
After a raw burger is sent out, Gordon tells the kitchen staff to stop and relax.
There are definitely some rocky moments, but the relaunch generally seems to be a big improvement it seems like The Park Restaurant and Bar is set up for success going forward.
Is that true? Let’s find out…
The Park Restaurant and Bar Update - What Happened Next?
Now that we’ve recapped the The Park Restaurant and Bar 24 Hours to Hell and Back episode, let’s talk about what happened to the restaurant after the visit from Gordon Ramsay.
Is The Park Restaurant and Bar still open after Gordon Ramsay?
The Park Restaurant and Bar closed for good in December 2020, which was a little over a year after the visit from Gordon Ramsay and ten months after the 24 Hours to Hell and Back episode aired on TV.
As of 2022, the old The Park Restaurant and Bar Oak Park, CA location seems to still be empty, though it’s hard for us to check because the Oak Park Plaza building houses a ton of different businesses and not all of them list their suite number.
If you know about any business moving into that location, please let us know in the comments!
What happened to Kirin Stone from The Park Restaurant and Bar?
As far as we can tell, Kirin is still hosting the TV show, which is called The Fixers and airs on BYUtv. It’s about a team of builders who travel around the world and take on construction projects for people in need.
It’s kind of like 24 Hours to Hell and Back, but focused on construction projects instead of restaurants.
If you want to watch some episodes, you can stream them and see Kirin in action on this site.
