Restaurant Impossible - Pastori's - CLOSED

Restaurant Impossible Pastori's

Episode Recap

Chef Robert Irvine visits Ellington, Connecticut, where he finds not only a business on the verge of collapse but also a family on the verge of falling apart. Owners Bill and Georgia Savvidis had owned the restaurant for over 20 years and it was once very successful. However, the success did not last and the restaurant is in it's last few months before it will close. Matter's weren't helped when Bill fired his head chef Steve who was also his son, this caused problems with both family relationships and with the business. The customers felt the biggest brunt of this as the food quality suffered. As well as the bad food and the fractured family, Robert also had to deal with a terrible decor. The menu was given a transformation and the kitchen staff were trained.

What Happened Next? 

They kept most of the new menu but bought back some old dishes. Yelp reviews are mixed after Robert's makeover of the restaurant, there are as many bad reviews as there are good. The bad comments seem to centre on the food as the reviews are often positive about the service. On 8th June 2014, the restaurant closed.
