Critics have commented that Fox’s adaptation of Kitchen Nightmares strayed from the strengths of the original Channel 4 series. Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune said, “Leave it to Fox to take something the Brits did pretty well and muck it up”. She added, “Never mind the cooking; this edition of the show appears to be more interested in playing up the family dramas at the restaurants Ramsay visits”. Robert Lloyd of the Los Angeles Times commented, “Whereas the British Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares is fundamentally a food show — it has interesting things to show you about how a restaurant runs and a kitchen works, the wonders of local markets and what you can make from them if you’re Gordon Ramsay or willing to follow his instructions — the Fox edition emphasizes mishap, argument and emotional breakdown almost to the exclusion of cuisine”.

Mojitos Kitchen Nightmares

Back in May of 2009, Kitchen Nightmares – one of my favorite shows – filmed an episode in my neighborhood, at local Cuban restaurant Mojito.  It’s never a good sign for a restaurant to make it onto the show, and I felt glad that I had never eaten there before.  I’ve seen plenty of episodes with rotting food and bug-covered kitchens, and I’d told myself more than once that if I ever found out I’d eaten at one of the Kitchen Nightmares restaurants, I would promptly make myself throw up just for good measure, no matter how long ago the meal had been.  Seriously people, kitchens crawling with bugs; food older than my kids; staff members that act so cringe-worthy on camera I can’t even imagine how much worse they are off camera.

I've been coming to this place for years. The mojitos are great, (cheaper if you sit at the bar). They also have one of the best Cuban sandwiches around, just delicious! The bad thing about this place is the inconsistency in it being open. I guess the owners don't really need the business because they open and close whenever they feel like it. I've driven there a few times on days that they were supposed to be open, excited for my Cuban sandwich and mojito, and have been disappointed by them being closed. I still go every once and a while but before I head out I definitely call and make sure someone is there. Lol Definitely worth going though!

This place USED to be amazing. My boyfriend and I would get a group together for superbrunch at least twice a month, sometimes more. After a completely rude and disrespectful experience with the crazy women who “run” this place, we boycotted Mojitos for 2 years. Finally got up the nerve to give it another try, what a mistake. Superbrunch is gone, regular brunch is a ripoff and half the dishes aren't served anymore. Unfriendly service took forever, they got our drink order wrong and everything went up in price several dollars. I'm no longer boycotting them from a moral standpoint, there's just nothing there that I want to spend my money on.

Fried snapper was cooked perfectly and the serving was large! Mojitos were just right, to sip on while listening to some great Caribbean, world music in the background. Nice size restaurant, and friendly staff. I will be back!

But my love for my websites was apparently greater than my fear of food poisoning, because I managed to snag a reservation one of the nights they were shooting and convinced The Ass to go with me.  I was hoping to write it all up for Filming In Brooklyn, but of course the production made me sign so many papers I decided in the end it wouldn’t be worth the headache and kept quiet (online, anyway) about our little adventure.  So, basically, we paid a babysitter to watch our kids while we paid to go eat in a restaurant that we knew to be so incredibly bad it had made it onto Kitchen Nightmares.  We did this willingly, enthusiastically even.

Ginia Bellafante of the New York Times found Ramsay’s teaching methods and high standards “undeniably hypnotic” and commented that “the thrill of watching Mr. Ramsay is in witnessing someone so at peace with his own arrogance.” Doug Elfman of the Chicago Sun-Times said the show is “a very entertaining public service” that “will make you laugh, make you sick and make you think”. Randy Cordova of the Arizona Republic found Ramsay “just as blustery and foul-mouthed here as he is on Hell’s Kitchen. But he is also oddly endearing, mainly because he genuinely seems invested in the fate of each restaurant”.

@Jennifer – You know, I’ve never seen the British version. I do watch this one all the time, and Hell’s Kitchen as well. On Hell’s he’s just as profane, maybe even more so!

The chef-turned-host still has a number of shows on television in both the U.S. and U.K., including ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ and multiple versions of ‘Master Chef,’ so Ramsay will still be on television.
