My target, my very own restaurant, Gordon Ramsay Steak. Tonight, they’re celebrating their five-year anniversary. And I’m going undercover to fool my staff. Thomas, welcome. GORDON RAMSAY: –which includes my executive chef, “Hell’s Kitchen” winner Christina Wilson. Big, big day for us today.
Fifth anniversary. Need to be on your A-game. GORDON RAMSAY: My cover, I’m a waiter in training from Baltimore, looking to learn the Gordon Ramsay standard. [slurping] [music playing] My production crew has done it again. They’ve set up hidden cameras to capture all the action. – They’re coming.
– They are coming. GORDON RAMSAY: The place is crawling with executives and employees that I’ve known for years. [glass clinking] Now, this is a challenge. I wanted to take a minute to thank Chef Christina Wilson for making this restaurant the success that it is.
Thank you. GORDON RAMSAY: True, the restaurant is a success. But– [shattering] –it’s never faced a challenge quite like Thomas. Want to drop at 31, Thomas. GORDON RAMSAY: Step one, let’s see what kind of bad behavior I can sneak past my employees.
Ma’am. [inaudible]. GORDON RAMSAY (AS THOMAS): Sorry. That ought to get the ball rolling.
Who did that? The big guy? OK, sorry about that. I’ll get a new one.
GORDON RAMSAY: While the manager is putting out that fire, I’m free to chat with one of the VIPs. Yes, this is great. Thank you.
Uh, yeah, that’s OK. GORDON RAMSAY (AS THOMAS): Just bon appetit. Really? GORDON RAMSAY: My first reprimand, the first of many.
He has no idea all the trouble I’m about to serve up. [music playing] Mm. That’s good. You’re kidding. I saw him drinking champagne, too.
GORDON RAMSAY: Any full-time waiter would have been fired by now. But since I’m a trainee, they’re giving me every chance to learn. Absolutely, some more truffle for the lady. GORDON RAMSAY: Truffle is a delicacy loved by all.
Some more truffle? Oh, um, sure. GORDON RAMSAY: It’s also very expensive.
Thank you. GORDON RAMSAY: Very, very expensive. [music playing] $300 worth truffle. Now that’s good service. She loves truffle.
I’ve put the staff through enough. Time to move on to the real reason I’m here, Christina. Wellingtons, sir. Beef Wellington is on the menu. [bleep] the plates are hot. But for this table, I’ve added a little bit of my thumb in their mashed potatoes.
Sir. Thank you. This is Chef Gordon Ramsay’s roasted Beef Wellington. GORDON RAMSAY: Damn. Might’ve overplayed my hand.
Or thumb, rather. You just put your thumb in the plate. Chef Christina had to bring it to my attention.
Everything OK? Good to go? The plates were super hot. And with dinner over, it’s time for Thomas to clear the table. Thank you. Sir.
[bleep] You OK? Yeah. Hope that doesn’t leave a stain.
Do you need club soda? Did it hit your pants? GORDON RAMSAY: This is not what she had in mind for the five-year anniversary of the restaurant. They probably get nervous around executives.
GORDON RAMSAY: Maybe a little wine will relax Christina’s table. [music playing] Whoa. GORDON RAMSAY: Who doesn’t enjoy a heavy pour? I’m gonna get a different glass. It’s, like, half of the bottle. A little heavy there, sir.
He’s drinking fast. Again, well, we always top up at the same level, OK? Don’t fill up. You’re getting the short end of this meal service today. GORDON RAMSAY: That is a bad sign.
I’m gonna be cut off from her table. Thomas? Thank you, sir.
Time to act quickly. Better move fast. The managers are closing in. All eyes are on me.
GORDON RAMSAY: Christina’s finished, but I’m not quite done. There’s this place called Green Eggs, which is this awesome breakfast [inaudible]. [gasping] Ma’am. [bleep] Oh my god.
[bleep] I’m so sorry. That’s good. Maybe a date before [bleep]. So when I said keep a leash on him, that didn’t really work out too well. GORDON RAMSAY: She still has no idea it’s me. I’m so sorry.
Before I get thrown out of my own restaurant, time to introduce Christina to her boss. Can I get you a t-shirt? Can I– Christina, it’s me, Gordon Ramsay. And you’re busted. [clapping] GORDON RAMSAY: A complete success. Would you like some more wine?
[laughter] Thomas was such a bad waiter, I’m happy to fire him myself. [music playing]
