Chef Gordon Ramsay visits Giuseppi's, a family-run Italian restaurant in Macomb Twp, MI, that's in absolute turmoil. A father-son team runs the kitchen and are constantly at each other's throat. All the tension is hindering the health of dad who suffers from diabetes. With a chaotic atmosphere in the kitchen and the lack of clientele, this family needs Gordon's help or else they are going to be forced to close their doors forever. To help ignite the passion and fun back into the restaurant, Gordon orders the father-son team have a cook-off and the winner's dish becomes a special. To help with the relaunch, Giuseppi's hosts the first ever bowl-a-thon to support diabetes and spread the word about the new restaurant. Will the new specials and spreading the word be enough to entice customers into the restaurant and get Giuseppi's back on its feet?
Giuseppi's is closed. They closed in July 2009, blaming the economy and the lack of a liquor license for the closure.
