So Gordon Ramsay and Kitchen Nightmares take on Lela's in Pomona this week. From teasers on the KN website, the challenge of Lela's is more than the overpriced menu, the pre-packaged frozen fish or the powdered potatoes: It seems to be Pomona itself. We know nothing of the city or its dining scene, but apparently neither does Lela or her chef Ricky. The space actually looks alright; in a larger city, maybe it would succeed, especially with some Ramsay direction. Unfortunately, Lela's didn't have much of a chance: The restaurant's website is shuttered and the phone is "temporarily out of service." So much for Ramsay "fixing" things.
