Middletown, NY Restaurant Featured on Food Network’s Restaurant: Impossible
One Hudson Valley restaurant was just recently featured on the Food Network; however, the initial reasons for being on the show may not be as appetizing. Restaurant: Impossible follows Chef Robert Irvine as he tries to turn around restaurants across the United States that are facing impending demise if things don't improve. Irvine only has a $10,000 budget and two days to work to turn things around. $10,000 may sound like a lot, but for anyone who has ever done a remodel (commercially or residentially) it goes quickly trying to fix things. Irvine and his team's creativity and resourcefulness come in handy in saving these restaurants.
