Restaurant Impossible - Pappas Restaurant - CLOSED

Restaurant Impossible Pappas Restaurant

Episode Recap

Chef Robert Irvine visits Pappas Restaurant in Benicia, California, where he finds a failing Greek restaurant run by Mike Anestasios and his constantly bickering sons. They are constantly fighting and the relationships are in need of Robert's help. The fighting however isn't Robert's only obstacle to over come in order to turn the restaurant around, the decor in the restaurant is terrible and the food is bland. Robert changes both the menu and the decor of the restaurant.

What Happened Next? 

Robert revisits and Mike tells him that business is up 50% on the previous year. The restaurant closed in March 2013, owner Mike blamed the decline of foot traffic off the back of the show, the vast amount of restaurants in Benicia for diners to choose from and taking too long to return staple dishes to the menu that the regulars missed.

  1. I'm surprised I never heard of this place till last Wednesday (we went the next day), but I'm glad we just went with it and enjoyed the meal at San Francisco restaurants. I definitely will be back with friends or dates, because it's absolutely worth every dime.
