Fayetteville Restaurant on Food Network's "Restaurant: Impossible"
Fayetteville restaurant Longbranch Steak & Seafood, located just south of downtown Fayetteville in the Kroger shopping center, will be filmed next week as part of the Food Network television show, Restaurant: Impossible.
From the tv show’s website:
In its second season, Restaurant: Impossible continues its successful run as one of the network’s most popular shows, where Chef Robert Irvine attempts to save America’s most desperate restaurants from impending failure in just two days with only $10,000. Over the course of each extreme mission, Robert assesses all of the restaurant’s facets and then overhauls its weakest spots with updates to menus, retraining staff and implementing aesthetic changes with the help of his design team, before hitting the streets to tell the community about the improved restaurant.
A native of England, Robert joined the British Royal Navy at the age of 15 and his skills in the kitchen soon came to the attention of his superiors. As part of his service for the Royal Navy, Robert was selected to work on board the Royal Yacht Britannia, where the royal family and their entourages regularly dined. During his time training U.S. Navy chefs as part of a guest chef program, Robert worked in the White House kitchens and his creations were served to high-ranking government officials. During his career, he has also had the opportunity to serve 6,000 servicemen and women on a U.S. aircraft carrier and plan the menu for a celebrity-studded after-party at the Academy Awards. Robert is the author of two cookbooks, Mission: Cook! (Harper Collins, 2007) and Impossible to Easy (Harper Collins, 2010).
The goal is to have Longbranch reopened and serving the new menu by the evening of Thursday, March 15. The two days of work, including filming around town, in grocery stores and out promoting the grand opening as well as including that grand opening will be filmed and edited into an hour long episode which will air on Food Network.
You can call 770.461.9982 to make reservations for opening night and potentially be filmed as part of the show.
