It's too bad. Flamango’s/The Junction was closed down in April of 2011, and shortly after, The Rail at Readington opened in the same location. Take that Adele. I moved out of the area and just returned. Mother and daughter owners Adele and Cheryl are stuck in their tropical ways but their restaurant is far from paradise. Not somebody who should be running a business nor somebody who is capable of doing so. So I ordered. The young waitress is a flirt when it's time to pay your check but basically, she's useless in her chosen profession. Whitehouse Station, New Jersey, is a quaint location surrounded by farmland. This is all hard on him, and the staff all feels bad seeing Bill overworked like that. He has come to visit Flamango’s, and since there’s a long time before the restaurant opens, he opts to visit the family at home rather than go straight to the restaurant.

Would someone mind telling me what the hell happened to the Flamingo? this Whitehouse Station eatery serves American cuisine everyone will love. Part of the charm was the human interaction between the cooks and the waitresses.2. People are so blind to their own problems. I really love this place. I noticed her "we'll see" attitude when asked about how things were going really meant that she was ignoring any success and didn't like it because it was different.

Adele is just afraid of change. However, on re-launch night she is indeed wearing a blue shirt, I noticed this at once on first viewing. The potatoes had no flavor. She said I could be in and out in ten. The owner was in denial an unable to embrace or accept change. Poor man Bill most people don't like change and as for his daughter she had never had a pay cheque in two years and at 42 lived with parents. Waitress Jody is left in charge of Gordon’s experience. I finally had a chance to stop in after the 'official' name change. Adele is the first to admit that the only person she thinks can save them is Gordon Ramsay. And somebody can need more time, in comparison with agile Gordon. Maybe they're getting some tax benefit in not tearing it down and starting over. Since I know the producers want to make every restaurant look like a disaster for the first half of the show, I always hold judgment ’til the end, then guess if they’re open or closed (May 2020) then look it up on sites like this.

In 2011, Gordon decided to make a follow-up visit to the Junction to see how things had progressed a year down the line.
