An upcoming episode of the Food Network’s “Restaurant Impossible," a show where celebrity chef Robert Irvine destroys a restaurant with a sledgehammer only to resurrect it a few days later, is coming to Bradenton, and more importantly the public is invited.

According to the Bradenton Herald, filming for the show will take place Thursday, September 26 at 10:30 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. at breakfast and lunch spot Theresa’s Restaurant, located at 608 Tamiami Trail, Bradenton.

This isn't the first time the show has come to Teresa's.

The restaurant was actually featured on "Restaurant Impossible" four years ago, and the owner says she’s excited to do it all over again.  “It was great having him here and it brought a lot of publicity but we are seasonal,” said owner Jodi Boucher to the paper. “So we are very happy for the experience and grateful they’re coming back this year. It brings new people here, which I love. I’ve been here 14 years and love what I do.”
