Hot Potato Cafe getting Gordon Ramsay treatment

The Fishtown restaurant is hosting "KItchen Nightmares." Which restaurant do YOU think could use his help?

Hot Potato Cafe getting Gordon Ramsay treatment

Gordon Ramsay will be at Hot Potato Cafe in Fishtown over the next few days to shoot an episode of Fox's "Kitchen Nightmares," as I reported this morning.

Ramsay's shtick involves tasting the food, making yuk noises, getting the story from chef and management, trying to fix what's broken and walking off into the sunset. (In this case, who knows. It could be onto the Market-Frankford El.)

I hear that the Italian Bistro was also considered for the show.

Which restaurants out there do you think might be a good fit? Keep comments civil, please.
