Restaurant-revamping chef Gordon Ramsay was back at Hampden’s Cafe Hon months after featuring the once maligned eatery on Kitchen Nightmares last November. The show usually portrays Ramsay coming to the aid of a restaurant with awful cooking (and a healthy dose of interpersonal drama), but at Cafe Hon the focus was primarily on healing bad blood between owner Denise Whiting and city residents after Whiting attempted to enforce a trademark on the word “hon.”
In May, Ramsay stopped back in at the beflamingoed (that’s a word, look it up) restaurant to tape a return episode to see if his solution — which amounted to Whiting publicly relinquishing her trademark — worked.
(Let me just say that just last week I was walking down the Avenue and overheard a small group of friends figuring out where to eat. One suggested Cafe Hon, and another quickly shut it down because she “heard they have really awful food there. They were, like, on TV for it. For real.” So, for whatever that’s worth.)
You can watch the return episode Friday at 8 p.m. on Fox.
