  • Papa C's Eastside Cafe in Fairport, N.Y., might have the most explosive family that Chef Robert Irvine has ever faced.

Before Robert can address the problems that led to the business faltering, he must first keep this family from completely imploding.

  • This special episode dishes out real time trivia about Chef Robert Irvine and behind the scenes stories at the Coach Lamp Restaurant & Pub in Louisville, Ky.
