    Nerve.com reviews The Restaurant: The secret S&M subtext

    http://www.nervemag.com/screeningroom/tv/restaurant/

    A snippet:

    The star of The Restaurant is remarkably crass, a hard, indifferent dom figure, all too comfortable exercising control. Itís as if heís attracted to something eager and unformed in the waiters ó something of himself he sees in them, first-generation Italian-American Queens kid that he is ó and then turns on them for the same elements. Fascinatingly, the show portrays this nasty component of restaurant life, one thatís inevitably eroticized. The power differential between boss and wait staff is great, and waiters, like servants, arouse fantasies about dutifulness and accommodation.

    o get feral and dirty, sweaty and excited, frenzied, fed, whipped, and sated, some people go to sex clubs and orgies. Food professionals just go to work.
    I must be working at the wrong restaurant!

    mmmm and to think I let my kids watch a couple episodes, what was I thinking
    I could go east, I could go west, it was all up to me to decide. Just then I saw a young hawk flyin' and my soul began to rise. ~Bob Seger
