Restaurant reopens after bad reality TV experience

PHOENIX (AP) - A Scottsdale, Ariz. restaurant reopened for business
Tuesday night to good reviews after it temporarily shut its doors
following an embarrassing reality TV experience.

Wife and husband Amy and Samy Bouzaglo recently invited the popular
makeover show "Kitchen Nightmares" to their restaurant, Amy's Baking
Co., after years of bad online reviews from unhappy customers. The
Bouzaglos complained on the show that they were the victims of online
bullying, but host and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay agreed with the
bad reviews. He declared the food at the upscale pizzeria undercooked
and poorly seasoned. The Bouzaglos got angry with Ramsay and he left
the restaurant before making it over — a first for his show.

Amy's Baking Co. temporarily closed last week after the episode aired
and hundreds of "Kitchen Nightmares" fans began leaving angry comments
on the restaurant's Facebook page.
