‘Restaurant: Impossible’ Won’t Be Filming in Bucks County Next Month After All
It turns out that Robert Irvine and the Food Network won't be coming to Falls Township next month after all.
Both LevittownNow.com and Patch.com are reporting that plans have been scrapped for the show to film at Michael's Restaurant and Lounge in the Morrisville section of Falls Township (Bucks County) in Pennsylvania.
LevittownNow.com had previously reported that the was originally scheduled for September 10 and 11. In fact, we told you about that earlier this month.
Allyson Kircher, a producer from the show's production company, Lando Entertainment, told both sites that the planned filming was canceled due to "unforeseen circumstances."
It is, however, possible that the show could return to the area soon, Kircher told both sites in an email. Patch.com reached out to the restaurant's owner, Michael Galasso, Jr., who says he's hopeful that the show will film there at a "future date."
"We had to cancel this episode for now, but we hope to come back to the area soon," she wrote to both publications.
If you've ever seen the show you know that Irvine (and his team) work with a small budget (like $10,000) to renovate an existing facility in just two days. Restaurant: Impossible is now in its 16th season actually.
A call had gone out for volunteers to both sign up to try the new restaurant and to assist in the renovation process. That, of course, has also been canceled.
Hopefully, the Food Network DOES return to the area.
