After Ramsay does an on-the-cheap overhaul to Lanterna's interior décor -- and good-humoredly insulting Chef Alessandro's ex-flight attendant girlfriend and Lanterna decorator in the process -- the new Lanterna debuts on its one-year birthday with a new menu, a new look, and, Ramsay hopes, a new dedication to good food. Lanterna is soon filled with "local Letchworth dignitaries," and it's not long before Chef Alessandro starts to fall apart in the kitchen and show signs of returning to his former frenetic, slap-dash cooking. Ramsay yanks Gavin into the kitchen and instructs him to start pushing certain ready-to-go starters so that Chef Alessandro has time to catch up and cook properly. Things start to improve, and the diners are not only getting their food but are also enjoying that food. At the end of the night, Ramsay toasts Lanterna, her chef, and Gavin's newfound profiterole balls.
Six weeks later, Ramsay shows up to check in on Lanterna and is happy to discover that the kitchen -- including Chef Alessandro's fingernails -- is clean, all vegetables are done to order, and Chef Alessandro is actually making his own pasta dough. Ramsay sits down to sample the food, and aside from some veal, which he decides has been "battered to death," Ramsay is suitably impressed by the flavors of Chef Alessandro's simple, fresh Italian cuisine. While Chef Alessandro has managed to clear off GBP 20,000 of his debt, he still hasn't managed to sell his car or that stupid-ass vanity plate. Hysterically, the close of the episode has Ramsay putting in a desperate call to Chef Gary Rhodes and pleading with him to buy the "A1 Chef" plate for GBP 2,998.
