Restaurant Impossible - Mainelli's - CLOSED

Mainelli's Restaurant Impossible

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 all of the food. There are some issues with food safety and the kitchen has to be closed down, cleaned and the staff retrained on basic cookery methods. 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 forcing the restaurant to close to be able to repair the damage. 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. Reviews for the restaurant were good on Yelp before and after Robert visited the restaurant. 

This episode was episode 2 of season 1 and was aired on Janaury 26 2011, there were 7 episodes in the season, airing from January to March 2011 and the closure rate for Restaurant Impossible Season 1 currently stands at 86%.
