In a sad ironic twist Black Pearl, the seafood restaurant featured on Kitchen Nightmares just last Thursday, has closed. A call to the troubled restaurant confirms that they're selling the business and are closed as of today. Issues that plagued the restaurant according to the Nightmares ep include infighting with the management, an inability to run both the BOH and the FOH, and lackluster (and sometimes sandy) food. One television blogger complained that the Ramsay never did a follow up four months after the shooting, as requested by the owners. And now we know why. Apparently even professed restaurant savior Gordo can't save all failing operations.
