Food Network's 'Restaurant: Impossible' returns to Orlando, calls for volunteers


Robert Irvine and his Restaurant: Impossible crew don't have the absolute best track record in Central Florida ... remember when they did over Winter Garden's Cave Inn BBQ? How about the Soup to Nuts Diner in Tavares? However, the Caffe Positano-to-Tornatore's Pizzeria transformation seems to be going gangbusters, so they are on an upswing. And they're back in town.

No word yet on which Orlando restaurant will be the latest one to get the treatment, but Food Network has put out a call for volunteers in the Orlando area. Pick up a paintbrush and you could be the first to know.
