Gordon Ramrod Ramsay Filming Kitchen Nightmares at Fleming: a Taste of Denmark

Fox Broadcasting
The Sun-Sentinel reports that Gordon Ramsay is in town visiting three South Florida restaurants for Kitchen Nightmares, his popular restaurant intervention series on Fox. The world renowned chef/multinational restaurant owner, cookbook author and TV personality is known for animated outbursts with knucklehead restaurant staff as he attempts to jump start their struggling operations.

At Surme salon next door, proprietor Janilla Khavar says lately the restaurant just hasn't been up to snuff.

"They're not as busy as they used to be," she notes.  "I've always highly recommended it. We go there; our customers go there."
