Gordon Ramsay coming to the Bend

Published: February 15, 2008

Have you ever wondered what celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is like in person? Well, you may just get a chance to find out.

Ramsay may soon be behind the scenes at a South Bend eatery as filming for Season 2 of Fox’s “Kitchen Nightmares” is about to get under way.

Sheila Conlin of The Conlin Co., which is casting the show, confirmed that j. willy’s bar & grille, 52885 Indiana 933 North, South Bend has been one of the restaurants slated for production. “We’re definitely interested in j. willy’s,” Conlin told me Friday afternoon. “We have been in some pre-production with them.”
Of course Fox will have the final say of what restaurants are ultimately chosen.

The American adaptation of Ramsay’s British reality hit brings the chef to restaurants in crisis for a week as he attempts to expose and correct their flaws before the doors close for good.

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay may be bringing his “Kitchen Nightmares” show to South Bend.

If j. willy’s is in fact one of 12 struggling eateries to be featured on the reality show, filming could happen as soon as this spring.
