In The Drink is Gordon Ramsay’s latest Kitchen Nightmares takeover, a country club restaurant in desperate need of help. Fans know Ramsay always succeeds, but will the In The Drink staff follow the celebrity chef and restaurateur’s advice? Is the business still open today?
The first two episodes of the FOX kitchen reality series have featured restaurants that are still going strong today, thanks to Ramsay. Will In The Drink the be show’s first failure? There’s only one way to find out! Well, maybe two ways. The first, is by watching the episode of FOX. If you missed it when it aired on the FOX network, you can stream “In The Drink” on Hulu the next day.
Another way to know if In The Drink is still open, is by reading this post. Spoiler alert! If you’re watching Kitchen Nightmares and are just dying to know if the business is still around today, we have answers! We do encourage you to continue watching the episode, though, it’s very much worth it.
If you have been watching Kitchen Nightmares for as long as I have, you know that not every restaurant Ramsay helps out ends up being a success, unfortunately. Ramsay and his team of experts do all they can, but it’s all up to the staff and crew to follow through.
Is In The Drink from Kitchen Nightmares still open?
In short, yes! In The Drink Bar and Restaurant is still open and serving their community today. On their Facebook page, In The Drink even promotes Kitchen Nightmares, letting fans know their restaurant will be featured in the Oct. 9 episode.
Located in New Jersey, In The Drink Bar and Restaurant is nestled inside the Preakness Valley Gold Course, so it’s already a fairly popular location. One thing we did notice, though, is that this spot doesn’t seem to be thriving like the first two places, Bask 46 and Bel Aire. It’s doing great, from what we see, don’t get me wrong. But Bask 46 and Bel Aire have a higher and stronger following on social media when we last checked in. Still, I’m sure the owners of In The Drink are just grateful their business is on the right road.
Did In The Drink change their menu after Kitchen Nightmares?
First impressions are everything when you want to attract people to your business. So not only does the place need to look clean and inviting, but a great menu is essential! It’s one of the first things Ramsay pays attention to. And, from what we’ve seen, he is almost never a fan. More often than not, the menu is packed with an overwhelming amount of options. The preferred way to go, according to Ramsay? A simple and to-the-point menu.
That said, we’re happy to see that In The Drink Bar and Restaurant did, in fact, make some menu upgrades. Check it out on their page HERE. There are fewer options, specials, and great drinks!
