We had an 'expose' on the T.V. in the U.K. a couple of years ago. Hidden camera, violent chefs and humiliated commis etc. The ripples went on for months. The 'culprits', I notice, are still in business.
This year I read in a 'Mans' magazine that one chef/owner in a famous London restaurant regularly had customers asking to be shown into the kitchen so that he would swear at them. They then left happy.
I think anyone who uses violence against his staff is a ****wit and anyone who puts up with it or supports it is a half***wit!
I heard on the radio last night that Fox (I think) is airing a show called either "When Chefs Attack" or something about "Worst Restaurants....". It's one of those hidden camera/reality shows. I wasn't able to catch much detail (as you can tell).
