Chef Robert Irvine is tasked with coming up with a whole new business plan to get these owners' heads out of the sand.

    Chef Robert Irvine has seen a lot of desperate restaurants, but Zoog's Caveman Cookin' in Port Hadlock, Wash., may just be the worst.

And if this wasn't enough of a challenge for Robert to overcome, the government shows up, threatening to close the doors of the restaurant.
