Chef Robert Irvine will be bringing his Food Network show, Restaurant Impossible, to the Benner Street Restaurant & Bar on May 22nd and 23rd. The show takes failing restaurants through extensive renovations in hopes to save the business.
The Benner Street Restaurant was originally a house dating back to the 1890s, located at the corner of Broadway and Benner Ave. in Fountain Hill. The restaurant was first known as the East End Hotel and in the early 1900s the name changed to the Schuster Hotel, changing again to its current Historic Benner Street Restaurant & Bar in 1950.
The Benner Street episode is poised to air at the end of July. The Restaurant Impossible crew recently wrapped up filming at a Horsham restaurant named Edibles earlier this month.
