Restaurant: Impossible is an American television program broadcast by the Food Network. The first episode premiered on January 19, 2011, at 10pm EST. Each episode, Chef Robert Irvine is given the "mission" of making the impossible possible by renovating a failing restaurant. He must be finished after two days, and can only spend $10,000. With the assistance of HGTV designers Taniya Nayak, Vanessa De Leon, Krista Watterworth, and Cheryl Torrenueva, along with general contractor Tom Bury, Chef Irvine redesigns the menu, renovates the restaurant, improves the service, and then reopens the revived restaurant.
