Restaurant Impossible - Mainelli's - CLOSED

Restaurant Impossible Mainelli's

Episode Recap

Chef Robert Irvine visits Mainelli's in Providence, Rhode Island, to try and save Mainelli's, a once popular Italian restaurant where the service is poor, the menu is huge and the staff in the kitchen struggle to cook the food. There are some issues with food safety and the kitchen has to be closed down, cleaned and the staff retrained. The restaurant is given a huge renovation and revamp and looks much better for it.

What Happened Next? 

Reviews after Robert's visit were good but the restaurant closed in January 2012. Not long after the episode was aired a car went through the side of the building... The owners said that they may open in a new location at a later date but this so far has not happened. The restaurant was sold at auction on 10th September 2013.
