Restaurant Impossible - Meglio's - CLOSED

Restaurant Impossible Meglio's

Episode Recap

Chef Robert Irvine visits Meglio's in Bridgeton, Missouri, an Italian restaurant in desperate need of his help. The restaurant is stuck in the past, serving "old family recipes" straight from the freezer. All of their food is frozen and simply reheated, nothing is fresh. Robert helps retrain the staff in the kitchen to work with fresh ingredients and revamps the menu to feature less items but items that are cooked from fresh.

What Happened Next?

Yelp, Urban Spoon and Trip Advisor reviews are mixed since Robert visited the restaurant with as many positive as negative reviews. After Robert left, owner John Meglio bought back the beef cannelloni even though the dish is frozen and not fresh. The restaurant closed in January 2015.
