Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares returns for an all-new season of restaurant makeovers beginning Monday, September 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).  Each episode follows Ramsay as he revamps a restaurant in crisis, exposing the stressful realities of running a successful food business. Now more than ever, restaurant owners are faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges, from health code violations and staffing issues to menu errors and kitchen conditions found only in nightmares. Ramsay is their restaurant 9-1-1 call and the last chance for their businesses to survive.


The Bel Aire Diner in Astoria, New York is no stranger to these challenges as a family-run business crumbling under dysfunction. With their parents retiring, Ramsay urges two brothers to work through their emotional conflicts to save their beloved restaurant in the all-new “Bel Aire Diner” series premiere episode of Kitchen Nightmares. Inspired by one of the UK’s biggest hits, Kitchen Nightmares hails from Studio Ramsay Global and FOX Alternative Entertainment. Ramsay serves as an executive producer, while David De Angelis serves as executive producer and showrunner.
