Gordon watches a dinner service, the kitchen is a mess with no organisation at all. No one steps up to admit mistakes have been made and everyone has given up. Gordon dramatically walks out and the owners follow him, a tear filled heart to heart brings Gordon back in to continue helping the restaurant. As Gordon is not happy with the current potato dishes he challenges the owners to make the best Potato dish, with the winner going on the menu and Gordon is most impressed with Danielles dish. At dinner service, Gordon notices the portions were HUGE! Customers took lots of food away in takeaway boxes, taking with them the restaurants profits. They smashed the old massive plates, and Gordon bought in chef Richard to mentor Danielle for a month. He also got them free potatoes for 3 months from a local supplier. Gordon invites Mr "Spuddy Hell" back on opening night, he enjoys the food and they pulled off the relaunch with no dishes returned.
What Happened Next? Danielle left the restaurant and the quality started to slip back to the old ways, the restaurant was put up for sale on Craiglist, the website is down, phone disconnected and Facebook page appears abandoned.
Lloyd Whiskey Bar opened in October 2012 with restaurant, the menu looks great and reviews are good.
