On last night's episode of "Restaurant: Impossible," Robert Irvine traveled to Mohnton, Pa. to help three brothers; Tim, Geoff and John save their mother's legacy; "Maniaci's Italian Bistro." He immediately found a neglected and outdated place that needs a cleaning and a facelift.
During the service, guests were complaining about the food which was vehemently defended by Tim, the chef. Even his wife, Dre told Robert that she did not like the salad dressing that everyone seemed to complain about. Tim subsequently made three dishes for Robert that were inedible. Then Robert ordered the staff to empty the restaurant of all furniture and the hundreds of dusty decorations.
Robert took the staff outside to see just who was the leader; some chose Tim; some chose Geoff, but most chose nobody, including Tim's wife. John has a family and a full-time job and does not always work in the restaurant. Somebody has to become the leader. After five years of failure, Robert has one day to fix it.
On the second day, Robert met with Tim and Cheryl to see what progress they made in revamping the tired interior. He met with the brothers after giving them homework, and it seemed that they had a plan. Two of the brothers decided to have Geoff be the leader, but there are three brothers, all with a vested interest in the place. They apologized to John for excluding him.
Robert had them make three items, he then got the identical items from their competitor. He blindfolded the three and let them decide which was better; neither won, meaning that the competition was not the reason they were failing. Then Robert gave them a lesson in the kitchen. They made fresh chicken with pasta and fresh fish that all agreed was awesome; no more frozen terrible food.
The unveiling was attended by the three brothers and their sister Sarah. When they saw the transformation, they were delighted. They knew their mother was smiling down from heaven. They were all brought to tears, especially when they saw the picture of their mother on the wall that was a lovely focal point.
The crowd waiting outside was delighted with the new menu and how bright and cheerful the place was. The food was a big hit and young and old alike just loved the entire experience, with much thanks to Robert and his staff of "Restaurant: Impossible."
