Restaurant Makeover , one of Canada’s top remodeling and renovation shows that airs on The Food Network, is hitting the west end of the Greater Toronto Area on today’s episode by bringing their restaurant expertise to Brooklyn’s Bar and Grill in Burlington, Ontario. Canadian designer Robin DeGroot and chef David Adjey help restaurant owner Filipo Corradi restore Brooklyn’s Bar and Grill so it no longer lives in the shadows of Corradi’s successful business; a local Burlington bowling alley. Like many other of the restaurants featured on Canada’s Restaurant Makeover, Brooklyn’s Bar and Grill is a dingy, dive eatery that’s doing nothing to attract its all-ages target clientele.
If you’re not familiar with Restaurant Makeover, the show’s format involves a complete facelift of the local restaurant by starting from scratch. The appointed designer and chef come up with a new concept to help make the failing eatery a successful venture. The Restaurant Makeover team implements new décor in the restaurant and works with the restaurant’s head chef to reevaluate their menu.
