The episodes of "Kitchen Nightmares" featuring Norwalk's Mill Street Bistro are now slated to air March 1 and 8 on FOX.

Jackie Palombo, senior production manager, said via email Tuesday the shows are "two-hour episodes."

The "Kitchen Nightmares" production team, featuring Chef Gordon Ramsay, was in Norwalk last June for about a week filming the episodes.

Initially, the episodes were tentatively scheduled to air early this month, then were pushed back to later this month.

How many times are they going to push this back?

So this is going to be 4 hours of show? Place must really suck.

Wow, I've never seen an episode longer then an hour or made into two parts each an hour. So you are saying each episode is "two-hours"? or is that a typo?

I wonder if that place will be chosen as one of the "update" episodes, where he comes back a year or so later to see how the place is doing.

If they keep moving the airing date back the place will be closed, drive past most nights very few customers, parking lot mostly empty.....

Yall Make Me Sick

Wow! Just show it already. Getting tired of trying to keep up with when it's showing!

Four hours? I think I might make the cut for having poor service on one of the nights.

The owner is a piece of crap he told some norwalk residence that his establishment wasn't for them and asked them to leave and this came from the server who was working the table hes got a big head and bad attitude thinks hes all that and way over priced

Joe, the owner, is the main problem with that place. He has cut his potential business In half, by only wanting Republicans to patronize his business. His derogatory comments towards Democrats, have driven many people away. He was heard telling one customer, that he really doesn't want his kind (liberal) in his place. Furthermore, the menu is overpriced and isn't near as good as HE thinks it is. I will never set foot in that place again. I am surprised it is still open.

tell it how it is

At the same time, however, the owner of the little restaurant in Berlin Heights did the same thing, just opposite. My family stopped going to that place due to her bashing on Republicans.

"March 1 on FOX Chef Gordon Ramsay travels to Norwalk, OH, to visit Mill Street Bistro in the first part of a special two-part episode of KITCHEN NIGHTMARES. Located in the heart of farm country, Chef Ramsay meets Joe, the most pretentious restaurant owner he's ever met. Joe claims his restaurant is farm-to-table, but the so-called bistro, proves to be anything but. Joe runs his staff like a dictator and has trouble listening to any views aside from his own. From his hostile attitude toward the staff and customers, to the overpriced and tasteless recipes being served, Chef Ramsay realizes that Joe is in denial and resistant to change. Find out if Ramsay can take on this stubborn owner in the all-new "Mill Street Bistro, Part One"
KITCHEN NIGHTMARES (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) – “Mill Street Bistro, Part 2″
In the second part of a two-part episode, Chef Ramsay is back in Ohio farm country, hoping to snap restaurant owner Joe out of his state of denial. Joe has remained defiant and defensive, taking great pride in deflecting the advice Ramsay has to offer, which drives Ramsay to contemplate leaving the restaurant. Even with a total revamp of the menu and décor, there are bigger problems at play. Can Chef Ramsay fix them?

Well now that you say that, I wanna go give that guy some money.

Wah Wah.

I never went to the restaurant before the show, but we did go there a couple weeks ago to check it out. I couldn't find a single thing wrong with the place. The food was excellent and the service was good. It is comparable to Crush or Zinc in Sandusky, but you don't have to drive there.
He might have been a jerk in the past, but as humans, we should be compassionate enough to give people a second chance. Allow people to see their errors and change. If he acts the same way, now, then don't patronize their business. Try it, again!

Be my guest Rick. I am of neither party, and had been there on numerous occasions. Loved the elk chili, but I got tired of trying to be converted to his ideology. He's much like another individual who runs around uptown. Zinc and Crush, no big deal there either.

Swamp Fox

This place compared to Zinc or Crush, both Sandusky restaurants have real trained chefs featuring fine dining, this place do away with the deep fryer and micro range and its zip.....

No Ramsay cant fix Big headed Joe

Pick a date and stick to it! With all the changes, the buttons on my DVR are wearing out!

Geez Doc, your fake screen name must mean that you have alot to say about other people but dont want people to know what kind of life you lead. The Mill Street Bistro was actually picked out of thousands of applications to be on a nationally broadcast primetime television show. Some people's views of Joe might be right or wrong, depending on if have even met the guy let alone have the fortitude to go out to eat, Not meaning yelling at the little girl at the counter at McDonalds. I personally have taken my family to the Mill Street Bistro and the place is just spectacular. It wasn't from Gordon Ramsay's doing either. Joe has a mental rolodex that goes so far above your labtop & couch that some people are just self made winners, others are complacent whiners. If you're upset that you're upset about your life do something about it, dont try to ride a winners coattail. I cant wait untill the show airs, there's a reason they keep pushing the dates back...Joe is not your average owner. The guy actually works his farm and his restraunt. Now go back to your couch and do some more research.

How funny is this comment now that the first episode has aired and it exposes the fraudulent owner. The place looked disgusting and the owner is a jerk. Guess what else? The nationally broadcast primetime television show it was chosen for is a show that showcases TERRIBLE restaurants. There is a reason it's called "Kitchen Nightmares." Wow...I'm glad I've never eaten there or subjected my family to such, either.
