The next evening, it's time for dinner service. Ramsay says that they overbooked the restaurant. Two seatings. For the first seating, one team will serve while the other will cook. For the second, it will be the other way around. The Red Team, lead by Elise, decides to serve first. Elise thinks this will be a good way to gauge how the kitchen gets pounded. I think this is wrong because they will have less energy in the kitchen when they finally get there.
The kitchen opens. They're serving a ribeye, a strip steak and a hamachi appetizer. We see Jennifer ask what appetizer a table would like, so clearly they're offering something else as well. Tommy is on appetizers and, I don't know, I almost feel like there's some bullshit producing happening, because he never seems to answer a question about when his food will be ready. It's, frankly, scary. I'm scared for him. Can that really be happening?
Elise doesn't group her orders and Ramsay rips her ticket up. In her defense, as a person who has waited his share of tables, not every restaurant wants you to group similar orders. That said, you gotta ask. She says she's a chef and not a waitress, but I hate her. Carrie is a great waitress. Tommy is so slow and he won't talk to anyone. I don't get it.
Appetizers start reaching tables an hour after service begins. That's crazy. I'd quit if I were a server at that restaurant. I have. Then, Natalie starts overcooking the meat. I would have chewed my own tongue off before I volunteered to be the meat station for this service. She does it again. Everything's overcooked. Argh! The diners are getting restless. Elise, of course, talks lots of shit about it. Then, Natalie starts a fire. Ramsay closes the Blue Team's kitchen.
The tables turn. The Red Team starts their service in the kitchen. Tommy is a horrible waiter. His table thought he was a weirdo and Ramsay thinks he writes like a child. The ladies seem to be rocking the kitchen. Carrie is...not horrible? Tommy effs up more of the service. Ramsay really has a problem with his handwriting.
It's entree time. Elise doesn't cook the fish properly though. Everyone is stunned though they've all screwed things up too. Elise says she won't make the same mistake again. Jennifer starts screaming at Carrie to speed up the garnishes. Ramsay thinks it's overcooked and everyone picks on her. Jennifer is seriously done with her. Carrie gets it together, but then Elise drops some fish on the floor. They were almost done but Ramsay shuts them down. Whatever, those people were eating for free, anyway.
