Tune In: Mr. Irvine Goes to Washington

Robert Irvine goes to Washington in a special episode of Restaurant: Impossible with a special appearance by First Lady Michelle Obama.

Robert Irvine faces his toughest challenge yet on Restaurant: Impossible when first lady Michelle Obama, a champion for the health of our nation’s children, assigns him the task of rebuilding Horton’s Kids, a children’s community center that serves after-school meals in one of Washington, D.C.’s neediest neighborhoods.

Viewers are taken on a tour of the apartment building where Horton’s is housed to reveal tiny offices, old computers, an inadequate kitchen and no dining space, leaving nearly 100 kids eating outside on a basketball court no matter the weather. The pressure is on as Robert has only two days to create a dining room, build a spacious kitchen and plant a garden for Horton’s Kids to grow their own fruits and vegetables — all before the first lady arrives in person to give her stamp of approval!
