Gordon Ramsay Pauses Filming to Meet Saugerties, NY Students and Teacher
It looks like we have some confirmation as to what and who has been filming in Ulster County.
For the last few days, the talk of the town has been all the cameras around Partition Street in Saugerties. We received several text messages through our station app explaining that celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and his show Kitchen Nightmares were filming at a local restaurant.
'Nightmare' Speculation in Saugerties, NY
Rumblings made their way across the Hudson Valley that Gordon Ramsay was filming Kitchen Nightmares at Love Bites Cafe. We reached out to the cafe to confirm if the FOX show was filming at their establishment but have yet to hear back.
Love Bites has, however, been dropping hints that big changes are coming to the cafe and that they will be closed for dinner until July.
For those that don't know, Kitchen Nightmares is a reality show that brings Ramsay to failing restaurants across the US. Then, he and his team work with the staff and owners to bring new life to the businesses. According to Deadline, Kitchen Nightmares was on a 10-year hiatus and is returning in 2023. Could a Saugerties restaurant be the focus of the premier episode?
Gordon Ramsay Pauses Filming to Meet Saugerties Fans
When word got out that the celebrity chef was filming in the area, fans rushed to Partition Street. And for a while, we were starting to think that Ramsay wasn't even in town since there hadn't been a single spotting.
That is until Gabby Vincent and her Pre-K students showed up. The teacher shared her Gordon Ramsay experience on Facebook writing:
