Cajun Conti, the parent company of Oceana Grill in New Orleans’ French Quarter, filed a lawsuit last week after the scene was posted on the show’s Facebook Page, Eater New Orleans reports.
The footage from the restaurant’s appearance shows Ramsay smelling a bucket of shrimp and then vomiting in to a bin.
But Cajun Conti, which is still trading, is arguing that the clip is misleading as it is not clear it is from seven years ago.
The company says the scenes were “contrived and orchestrated [by Ramsay and the show’s creators] to manufacture drama for their show”.
Lawyers from Cajun Conti reportedly took legal action in 2011 to try and stop the episode airing, which resulted in a disclaimer that the footage couldn’t be further used without a $10,000 payment to the restaurant with an update saying it didn’t represent current conditions.
The clip now appears to have been deleted from the Kitchen Nightmares Facebook page.
The show ended in 2014 after seven seasons.
BigHospitality has contacted representatives for Ramsay for further comment.
