I have worked in the restaurant business for 15 years and been in all angles of the business. I feel Rocco needs to get his management and sit them down and he also needs to get off his butt and quit being a jerk and work along side his crew and fix the problems not pass them onto it being his helps fault. That is so negative and bull crap as far as I am concerned. You make it a great environment and have a small opening night not an all out bash for the first time and expand from there. You don't go around firing people of treating them like crap and expect everyone to be happy. Have people who are well qualified to help you manage the restaurant and don't be a pompous jerk. You need to humble yourself and not vent your frustration on your staff for your incompatence. Get out there and roll up your sleeves and make this thing run. Have your mom work in the kitchen with the cooks and show them all how to do it right and serve good food. Don't try to make excusses that are lame accept responsibility for your lack of knowing how to run a good restaurant. Learn along with them and tell that French man go ahead and quit and the rest of management that if htey can't work along side of the employees and quit acting like they don't need to roll up their sleeves and help to then let them walk. Find people who are willing to go above and beyond their duties to help work out the problems. Also show some form of being human and show some real compassion for those who do get injured on the job, it is your restaurant and you are responsible for providing a safe work place. Good Luck Rocco but take some strong advice get out if you can't dig in and help your employee's out. You don't need to be out there getting your rocks off flirting with the women who are fake and phoney. Get real.
