Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay will spend four days filming his Kitchen Nightmares TV show in an Monrovia restaurant later this month, according to the show's field producer.
Ramsay, who brought his restaurant makeover show from Britain to the U.S. in 2007, will start filming at on Myrtle Avenue from July 13 to July 16, according to field producer Joe Di Lauro.
In "Kitchen Nightmares," Ramsay shows up to struggling restaurants and gives advice and training to help turn the establishment around.
"He will delve deep into the inner workings of each eatery and explore everything from unsanitary refrigerators to lazy and inexperienced staff to diagnose the real problems," the show's website states. "Whether he changes the restaurant's operations, updates the menu or gives the establishment a complete makeover, Chef Ramsay will do whatever it takes to try and turn these restaurants into popular, successful and, most importantly, money-making businesses."
Readers who would like to dine at the restaurant during filming must contact firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations. The restaurant will not be accepting phone reservations during filming, Di Lauro said.
