  • Restaurant: Impossible

    Gail, a successful businesswoman, purchased Bryant's Seafood World in Hueytown, Ala., expecting to seamlessly continue its 30 year tradition: But now, four years later, she desperately needs Chef Robert Irvine to intervene. Robert quickly realizes that she hasn't done anything to make the restaurant her own — the menu, decor and the grime all pre-date her ownership. Two days may not be enough time for Robert to turn this neglected restaurant and passionless owner around.

    Chef Robert Irvine has his work cut out for him at Spicy Bar and Grill, a Vietnamese restaurant in Falls Church, Va. Between one owner with no culinary experience in the kitchen and the other letting the staff run wild, it's no wonder why they're $300,000 in debt. Robert has just two days to get these owners on a business track, find a new chef and turn the unprofessional servers into a real workforce.

    Emotions explode when Chef Robert Irvine steps in to save Bumbinos Italian Ristorante in Orange City, Fla. The yelling first comes from owners Terry, her son Willie and her friend Cappy, whose animosity is killing their business. Once Robert notices some of their most egregious mistakes — including firing most of the staff and foolishly switching cooking roles — then he starts to yell. Robert must get above the noise to rebuild the relationships and sort out the roles of the restaurant for Bumbinos to stay open.
