Episode Description: [Air Date: 4-Mar-10] Chef Ramsay visits Lido Di Manhattan Beach in Manhattan Beach, CA. Lisa Hemmat grew up in and around the food service industry and inherited the entrepreneurial spirit from her parents. Shortly after graduating with a business degree from USC Marshall School of Business, she secured a loan (with her parents as co-signers) and purchased Lido Di Manhattan in June of 2004, at the ripe old age of 23. Having been left with a strong staff, including a veteran cook in the kitchen, Lisa felt secure and confident in her decision to become the next great Los Angeles restaurateur. Five years later, Lisa is struggling to pay her bills and has come to the harsh realization that she is barely making ends meet. Chef Ramsay gives Lisa a lesson in restaurant business 101.
