Restaurant: Impossible, The Anchor at Louisville Landing
How awesome is this? Did you know? Our very own little waterfront restaurant The Anchor at Louisville Landing is going to be featured on the Food Network/Discovery+ show Restaurant: Impossible with Chef Robert Irvine.
Restaurant: Impossible is an American reality television series, featuring chef and restaurateur Robert Irvine. The premise of the series is that within two days and on a budget of $10,000, Irvine renovates a failing restaurant with the goal of helping to restore it to profitability and prominence. After assessing the problems with the restaurant, Irvine typically creates a plan for the new decor, oversees the refurbishment of the restaurant, reduces the size of the menu and improves the quality of the entrees, develops a promotional activity, educates or resolves conflicts for the restaurant's owners, or trains the staff, as needed for each restaurant.
How exciting for this restaurant to get a complete makeover of their interior and their menu with tips from someone like Irvine. The Anchor at Louisville Landing is a family owned and operated restaurant on the water. They offer a wide range of dishes including seafood, chicken, steaks, pasta, desserts, wood fired pizza and daily specials. They have live entertainment Thursday-Sunday with karaoke every Friday night.
The restaurant closed their doors February 9th and 10th with a big reveal grand re-opening on February 11th. They invited people to join in for filming in the newly renovated space by making a reservation. The network stated "Our ultimate goal is to ensure the re-opening of the restaurant is a safe environment for our guests, the restaurant staff, and the production crew." They required masks be worn until service started and that social distancing be practiced.
We won't know how it all played out until the show airs, but this is what the restaurant had to say on their Facebook page...
According to the comments people seemed to be loving the food and the new atmosphere.
