  • Gordon Ramsey can only help so much and then they're on their own.

“Kitchen Nightmares” nightmare Scottsdale restaurant Amy’s Baking Co. reopened Tuesday, but getting insider info on the event is about as easy as getting Eric Holder to turn over documents.

Eater reported that the place has a whole new staff, none of whom were aware of the couple’s erratic lunacy, and that diners said the food was good and the service “excellent.”

Someone on Reddit said they saw owner Salomon “Samy” Bouzaglo yelling at and pushing a woman out the door, so that sounds more like the dude we know and love. Actually, according to AZ Central, Samy is facing deportation for some allegedly messy legal stuff and has been on the U.S. government’s radar for more than two years now. “I have nothing to hide,” he said.

Even if he gets to stay here he will probably have to deal with the fact that he admitted to taking servers’ tips, which is illegal.
