Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsay -- Casting in Pittsburgh

Hello TOPpers!  Today is the very first day of Pittsburgh Restaurant Week! I'm so excited I can hardly contain my excitement!  Thirty Restaurants are participating this year by offering fixed low prices so you can break your weekly routine without breaking the bank. I definitely encourage you to head out and give one (or two, or six) a try during this awesome week celebrating local dining culture.

But while it's always great to enjoy delicious new restaurants, there's always that "elephant" in the blogosphere that we all try to avoid at all cost -- the kitchens that need work. Now I'll be the first to admit it -- if you need work, I see that as nothing but room for opportunity... so here's that opportunity!

Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsay is casting right here in Pittsburgh!

Now I think we all know that I am the first one to dig deep to find the good in every dining experience, but maybe you're a restaurant owner who knows they have a great product, but have simply had trouble executing.  Maybe you're a NEW owner who's looking to perfect your kitchen's craft.  Or maybe you're a local foodie who's had one or two too many bad experiences at your former favorite establishment.  FOX is taking both applications and nominations in the Pittsburgh area starting today.

To nominate a restaurant for FOX's Kitchen Nightmares, here's some info:

wants to hear from you!
Did a recent dining experience leave a bad taste in your mouth?
Has your favorite restaurant lost its edge?
Does a local eatery need Gordon's help?

To nominate your own restaurant for a kitchen makeover courtesy of Gordon Ramsey, here's some info:

Eligible restaurants must have been open at least one year, offer dinner service, not be a franchise or chain and have at least 35 seats.

So here are my two pieces of advice for the week:

1) get out and give a participating Restaurant Week restaurant a try!
2) pass the word around that Gordon Ramsay is coming to town and he wants to turn your "opportunity" into Pittsburgh newest hot-spot.

I'm so excited that after all this press about Pittsburgh being a hot, hip city the dining scene is starting seeing some positive repercussions.  First Robert Irvine and Restaurant Impossible and now Gordon Ramsay!  Will someone please do me a favor and bring Anthony Bourdain and Anne Burrell here together at the same time so I can die happy?

So which restaurant are YOU going to try this week?

And of course I have to ask... which restaurant would you nominate for Kitchen Nightmares?
