Ever wondered if those restaurants you see on Kitchen Nightmares were able to turn it around or not?
Gordon Ramsay is an amazing chef, but he’s not a magician.
In my full Kitchen Nightmares open or closed list, I take a look at the closure rate for the various kitchen nightmares he tried to turn on around as of 2023 and list the number of Kitchen Nightmares restaurants still open.

At the bottom, there’s also a Kitchen Nightmares locations map that shows the location and status for all of the Kitchen Nightmares restaurants.
Note – for the main data, I’m only looking at the restaurants featured Kitchen Nightmares USA.
However, if you scroll to the bottom of the post, I also share updates for the restaurants from the UK version of the show (along with a map of all the Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares restaurants).

That wraps up our full Kitchen Nightmares where are they now roundup.
While a lot of the Kitchen Nightmares restaurants closed as of 2023, it’s important to remember that the show is more than a decade old now, so it’s natural for restaurants to close in that time.
For example, Ms. Jean’s Southern Cuisine closed in October 2022, which was around a decade after the episode aired on TV.
That’s definitely not a failure for Gordon Ramsay!
Additionally, there are still some real Kitchen Nightmares success stories, such as Lido di Manhattan, which has built a thriving business and is definitely one of the most successful Kitchen Nightmares restaurants.
