Chef Ramsay visits La Grange, IL, where loving husband and wife Terry and Carol are in desperate need of some guidance when it comes to running their restaurant. Two years ago, Terry decided to make his dream a reality by buying Café 36, an upscale French/American Bistro. However, with little-to-no restaurant experience, the undertaking has proven to be a bit difficult. With a lack of clientele and a head chef who doesn't care about quality control, this place is losing money. Chef Ramsay has a tough job ahead of him and is forced to give Terry and Carol a harsh reality check or else this couple will have to close their doors.
Cafe 36 is closed. They closed on 18 April 2009 with the owners blaming the economy and Gordon's changes to the restaurant for the closure.
