Kitchen Nightmares - Bel Aire Diner Update

On the season 8 premiere of Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon Ramsay is in Queens, New York to help out the restaurant Bel Aire.  Bel Aire is a family restaurant and Gordon needs to get the two brothers to work through their emotional conflicts in hopes of saving the restaurant.  While Gordon is there he discovers a menu that is too large, a filthy kitchen and food that doesn't taste good.

Kitchen Nightmares visited Bel Aire in May 2023 to film the episode, and I searched around the Internet to read stories, comments and reviews about Bel Aire Diner to get an idea of how the restaurant is doing since Gordon Ramsay visited, and here is what I found (note - all reviews are post Kitchen Nightmares):

New Kitchen Nightmares Episodes Start September 25 on Fox

Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsay makes its return to TV with new episodes that start Monday, September 25th at 8pm ET on Fox.  Kitchen Nightmares has not had a new episode air since 2014, so this is the first new episode in about 9 years.  Gordon Ramsay did have a similar show 24 Hours to Hell and Back that aired for 3 seasons from 2018-2020, but the format was a little bit different. 

This is the eighth season of Kitchen Nightmares (US version) and the season will be 10 episodes long. Each of the 10 restaurants that appear on the show this season will be in either New Jersey or New York.  Filming took place over a 5 week period, so they had to stay in the same area for filming to be able to complete 10 episodes. 

Here is a preview video of the season from Fox.  Also, look for the detailed updates for each of the restaurants that appear on the show on the Kitchen Nightmares Updates page
