They posted a photo with Ramsay and the staff along with a caption that read:

"We love taking care of industry peeps at the restaurant, but this one hits a little different.

Thank you @gordongram for coming in to dine with us last night! Our team was so thrilled to have you in the kitchen! Check out guest star, our executive chef, David Standridge for seasons 23 & 24. Can’t wait to see for ourselves! "

I'm not much of a food TV fan but I love Gordon Ramsay. This is a man who knows how to make food and great TV. I'm sorry but I'm not sitting through 30 minutes to an hour of a food-based show without some conflict and homeboy knows exactly how to stir the pot. See what I did there?

My favorite is when he shames the restaurant owners who don't properly clean their kitchens. Those episodes are satisfying and terrifying all at once. No matter where I eat, I always take a hard look at my first bite, then I say a short prayer and dive in.

Favorite Celebrity Chefs in Order:

1. Anthony Bourdain

2. Gordon Ramsay

3. Andrew Zimmern

What if Connecticut's towns and cities were cartoon characters? I began pondering this concept, and soon it became a nagging thought that refused to go away. I had one idea, followed by another and then a full list that is sure to upset a bunch of people.

If I left out your town, you're (probably) welcome!
