'Restaurant Impossible' Arrives in Horsham

Crews from the popular Food Network show "Restaurant Impossible" began setting up equipment Thursday morning at Edibles.

Two days. One mission: To breathe new life into Edibles Restaurant & Pub.

Crews from the Food Network's popular eatery makeover show "Restaurant Impossible" arrived Thursday morning and began readying the Horsham Road business' new look and potentially its new menu offerings. 

According to a "Restaurant Impossible" representative, the episode featuring John Hurley's soon-to-be remodeled restaurant is scheduled to air on July 21 at 10 p.m. The date is subject to change, but Hurley will be notified if the air date changes, according to the rep. 

Edibles will have a grand reopening Saturday night and, according to the rep, the event is already completely sold out. 

According to The Food Network's Web site, "Restaurant Impossible," which is in its fifth season and features celebrity chef Robert Irvine, works to "turn the tide of a failing restaurant" with $10,000 and two days for renovations, menu updates and staff retraining.

The Edibles owner told Patch on Wednesday that the exposure from the TV show "should be good" for his business.

"They’re going to make recommendations and I’m going to heed to whatever they think is going to be good for Edibles," he said. "I haven’t made any money in four and a half years."

The food there is always good and Meg is an excellent bartender/server. Good luck with Hurley's American Grill and cant wait to see Steve and Meg on the show.

I'd like to understand what Robert Tinks thinks this has to do with anything here? If you have a beef with someone unrelated to this, how about you have a direct conversation? Sounds like a bitter old man. Its a shame, Mr. Tinks, for you to clog up the positive comments here with your own "BS". You reap what you sow.

Our family of 4 has enjoyed eating at Edibles....now known as Hurley's... for the past 15 years. The menu variety of Edibles (sandwiches, pasta, chicken, steak and seafood dinners, salads) allowed everyone to be happy. The new menu has less variety, but there is still something for everyone. We usually eat in but did takeout on Saturday. I got a sneak peek of the pretty new dining room. The grilled pork version of the pulled pork sandwich was excellent. The smoked chicken is very tender. Even though the new french fries are freshly cut, we loved the original Edibles fries..so glad you kept the cheese cups on the menu. We will eat in soon!! I agree that the economy and the location might be hurting business. There seems to be a lot of turnover in that plaza and WaWa is next door. Best wishes to the Hurley's! Kim

I can't wait to have lunch there. Edibles is a Horsham restaurant and always sponsored my sports teams growing up. Best of luck with the remodel!
