Episode Recap

The Old Neighborhood episode on April 18, 2014. It was based on Old Neighborhood Restaurant in Arvada, Colorado. The family-ran restaurant which needed significant changes was visited by Chef Ramsay. The episode starts with Chef Ramsay looking at the restaurant’s odd mannequin named Randy. After looking at the decor of the restaurant, it’s clear that the restaurant is run by basically a hoarder.

Chef Ramsay starts discussing the business and the situation they are in with the owners. They make their decisions about how often they must change their menu and the decor in the restaurant.

Chef Gordon later notices that the menu is not in any sort of order. Furthermore, the chairs at the restaurant have wheels. First, Mr. Ramsay ordered New Orleans shrimp. After seeing some cream on it, Mr. Ramsay complained about the shrimp being light in color, and he spits it out after tasting it. It was clear that Ramsay was unimpressed. He took a walk around the restaurant and found out the wallpaper attached to walls of the restaurant sticks with to his hand when he touches it. He then talks with Alexa, the restaurant owner who says that she would not taste the food before serving it to their customers. After looking through all the garbage around the restaurant, he orders to get rid of the mannequin and other unsanitary stuff he finds at the restaurant.

He visits the restaurant the next  morning and asks the restaurant owner to change Old Neighborhood’s interior design and furniture. And he revamps the menu. The restaurant was re-launched by the evening, and the episode ends after a successful new beginning to the Old Neighborhood.

Old Neighborhood Update - What Happened Next?

Despite Old Neighborhood’s solid and successful re-launch, it was closed on May 1st, 2016 and the building was put up for sale.

It was announced officially on their Facebook page. The post thanked everyone for their support for 36 years and asked to visit the restaurant for one last time. .

In the case of Old Neighborhood, they cannot keep up with the negative press they had with the show Kitchen Nightmare. Despite receiving good reviews about their restaurant on Yelp after the re-launch, they still failed as a business. When the show was filming, they filmed much of the unsanitary stuff about the restaurant. The customers lost their faith, and the restaurant lost their hopes.
