PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A Food Network TV show overhauled a local restaurant.

“Restaurant: Impossible” wrapped up two days of taping at Del’s Restaurant on Liberty Avenue in Bloomfield.

The show spends $10,000 to turn a restaurant around through renovations and tweaks to the menu.

It wasn’t easy.

“The transformation here at Del’s has been a very, very, tough one because not only was the restaurant old – I mean original floors from 1940 – leaks everywhere,” Chef Robert Irvine, the show’s host, said.

The restaurant has been in the owner’s family for 62 years, so change was met with some resistance.

“The owner – owners – wow, that was the biggest transformation that I have seen in the entire series that we have done so far,” Irvine said. “From hard-headed – how do I say – frazzled young lady to a calm, confident employer.”

KDKA wasn’t allowed to interview the owners, but the show’s cameras did capture their reaction.

This episode is slated to air in February.
