  • Restaurant: Impossible

    The JuJu Bag in New Orleans is half cafe and half barber salon, and both are in desperate need of makeovers. Chef Robert Irvine has his hands full, with a cafe that looks like a cluttered living room, a kitchen without any commercial equipment, an owner who is stubborn despite her inexperience, and to top it all off — a barbershop renovation!

  • Restaurant: Impossible

    Chef Robert Irvine is in the resort town of South Padre Island, Texas, to help the owners of the Padre Rita Grill. This four-year-old business features both food and music, but they're not doing either very well. Robert will have to overhaul the tacky tiki bar decor and get the owners to focus on the bottom line to make life at the Padre Rita Grill paradise.

  • Restaurant: Impossible

    Chef Robert visits Abudanza Ristorante in Wilbraham, Mass., and meets owner Lou, a proud man with years of restaurant and executive chef experience who is burned out from the job and the demands of caring for a sick child. Chef Robert works to address management issues and the restaurant makeover, but is so moved by Lou and his family that he leaves them with another much needed surprise.

  • Restaurant: Impossible

    Papa C's Eastside Cafe in Fairport, N.Y., might have the most explosive family that Chef Robert Irvine has ever faced. Working in close quarters, Sal and his three sons spend more time pointing fingers than doing their jobs, resulting in inches of grease and grime throughout the restaurant and a screaming match so bad, it ended in a fistfight! Before Robert can address the problems that led to the business faltering, he must first keep this family from completely imploding.

  • Restaurant: Impossible

    Normally, struggling restaurant owners know well in advance when Chef Robert Irvine and his team are coming, but this is not a normal mission. To get a truer picture of the problems facing the restaurant, Robert ambushes the owners of Tornatore's Pizzeria in Orlando, Fla., and no one — the owners, the design team, the crew, not even Robert himself — knows what's to come.
