This Friday, Fox aired Chef Gordon Ramsay’s return visit to Davide on Kitchen Nightmares. The bull dog faced, foul-mouthed chef returned to the restaurant to check up on their progress back in July. Ramsay first visited the Italian eatery in Boston’s north end back in May. Davide, owned by brothers Anthony and Frank Gesualdi opened in 1982 but fell into a state of decline through the years, both the business and quality of the food. The owners contacted Kitchen Nightmares for help in reviving the place. After Ramsay’s first visit and makeover to the restaurant, business has grown over 10% and continues to thrive according to the owners.
Ramsay was happy to see the the brothers have kept up their end of the deal, and enjoyed sampling the new menu on Friday’s episode. Since Ramsay’s visit in July was on the heels of the Boston Bruin’s Stanley Cup win, he brought a very special guest; Bruins forward Shawn Thornton! Thornton presented Davide with a Bruins jersey signed by the entire team.
