Three local restaurants will appear on The Food Network’s Restaurant: Impossible hosted by Robert Irvine.

Irvine’s goal is to “Save America’s most desperate restaurants from impending failure in just two days with only $10,000.”

How it works: Chef Robert Irvine observes the restaurant’s operations on day one, looks for areas that need improvement in preparation for the restaurant’s reopening the following day.


Casa di Francesca’s, 2022 Seneca St., Park Vue Bar & Restaurant, 33 Crossman Ave., and O’Neill’s Stadium Inn, 3864 Abbott Rd, will appear on the show.

The restaurants will join a running list of other Buffalo restaurants that have been featured on The Food Network:

  • Anchor Bar
  • Andersons
  • Blackthorn Restaurant & Pub
  • Fowler’s Chocolates
  • Imperial Pizza
  • Jim’s Steakout
  • Lake Effect Diner
  • Oliver’s
  • Sophia’s Restaurant


Here is the official episode information from the Food Network on Casa di Francesca’s, which will first air on January 28, 2021:
