Me permalink You are quite correct, Dan. The conversion is off. I am not sure how I can get the conversion rate for the year the Saffrons received their inheritance. Not to mention that there could have been taxes that might have taken off a piece of the total amount. (Maybe even probate fees as well) The Burger Kitchen episode only spoke about the inheritance that Alan and Daniel received. But, the other Saffron grandchildren also got their share. Unlike Daniel, however, it appears they did not choose to get into this business venture. So that leaves another question. Did Alan choose Daniel and chose to sacrifice his inheritance by forcing him into the restaurant? Or did Daniel choose to open the join with his father as a partner (as suggested by the some of the links above). This certainly is a story that keeps unfolding. Thank you so much for your reply! It was a pleasure to read.

Actually if you watch the episode neither person ever says they ONLY received 250k, Alan only says he used that much of his money and he took that much of his sons money. Watching the show I assumed he received more than that because Daniels parents continue to ask him for more money and if he’s not getting paid a salary from The Burger Kitchen where would that money come from? In fact when the chef is fired they ask Daniel if he can deposit the $1,000 into the account so the check will clear and during another part Daniels girlfriend says the parents use the restaurants money to pay their rent but Daniel has to pay his out of his own pocket. I don’t think this show is stage at all. I don’t know why people think this. The reason people still fail after the show leaves is because their egos emerge and they start to believe they know best again even though they have been handed a recipe for success.

David Blaine was a bit of a dick, no doubt..but I think he was a dick because he was fed up with the conditions. It was obvious he could do far better. He, well, did. When he made his own burger.

Episode Recap Chef Gordon Ramsay visits Burger Kitchen, Los Angeles, CA, the restaurant has been open for just 1 year this restaurant has serious issues. In order to maintain the restaurant Alan Saffron used his son Daniels inheritance money without his permission and doesn’t treat him as a partner, barring him from knowing about the restaurants finances. No one in the family is getting along and no one in the kitchen is either, which is mismanaged and serving below par food. Gordon is impressed by the location and interior but the owners say they are losing $6000 per month and blame ever changing chefs, menus and a Yelp conspiracy as Yelp are deleting good reviews. Gordon samples the food: a range of burgers and a meat pie. He is not impressed, calling the food bland, flavourless and not cooked properly. Chef David is the one said to be to blame for the flavourless food but he says he is not allowed to change anything and also says he has not been paid wages. Daniel is at a loss on what to do and does not trust his father.

anonymous1023 permalink I am sure glad you said that. I know there was a burger kitchen in the UK.. and it puzzled me how this guy came up with the same name. This guy is something else, and I fear he is a scam artist far worse than the show even protrayed.. It was a pretty unbelieveable show wasnt it. We do not do things in America this way, trust me..

Yes, we know it’s old news. It didn’t matter how many fights he broke up, how many morsels of food he spat onto the floor, how many tears he dried or how many times he forced his mug into the nutballs’ faces and begged them to have, in various cases, sense, strength, sanity and compassion. Despite Gordon Ramsay’s best efforts (the show unfolded across two explosive segments) and, we believe, an ownership change, the Burger Kitchen has closed. And now its Third Street digs has been taken over by Luigi Osteria, a casual-seeming Italian joint run by Tony Riviera of Primo Hospitality Group.

Turns out the show left out telling the viewers that the Saffron grandaddy was notorious Australian “crime boss” Abe Saffron, owner of strip clubs, “brothels” accused of bribery, suspected of being involved in a prominent murder in Australia (which he was never charged with) .  Abe Saffron also known as “Mr. Sin”. I don’t know if all that is true but I have to say after reading Abe Saffron’s story on Wikipedia, I rather like him as an interesting figure. Here’s a video on Abe Saffron from youtube.  A story of his passing. And on this one, you can see Burger Kitchen owner Alan making an appearance at 0:11

I am, in a way tempted to try this place but I cannot support it considering that in my opinion it is very likely that the family reached out to Gordon for publicity and attention rather than to receive real help. Just my opinion. Also, the one time I made it to LA I opted for Kosher meals.  Although I must admit that Burger Kitchen is highly praised for its extensive beer collection, which is fantastic. Too bad I live very far away from this place. I wish them the best in their restaurant venue. Also, I do not have a personal vendetta against this family.
