Restaurants On The Edge


Restaurants on the Edge is a Canadian reality television series, which debuted in January 2020 on Cottage Life.[1] The series features chef Dennis Prescott, designer Karin Bohn and restaurateur Nick Liberato travelling around Canada and the world to help struggling restaurants modify their decor and their menu.[2]




Restaurants on the Edge



Each Restaurants on the Edge episode, Karin often finds local artists to create interior design pieces. Nick has the joyous job of delivering (often negative) restaurant reviews to the owners, while Dennis gets to enjoy tasting for new menus. Season 2 featured restaurants from all over the world. The team updated bistros, beach bars, and restaurants in Slovenia, Canada, Finland, Hawaii, the Caribbean, and Arizona.


Episode 4 saw Karin, Nick, and Dennis head to Ontario, Canada. Chef and owner of The Creative Plate Eatery, Connie, was running all elements of the restaurant which meant that she was being stretched thin. Drawing inspiration from the area, the team managed to revamp The Creative Plate Eatery. Connie said she was "over the moon" with the reveal. Today the restaurant has an impressive four and half out of five stars on Trip Advisor. It's also rated number one for restaurants in Gravenhurst.


After buying the restaurant, Siri and Sunny didn't change any elements of Aloha Vista Bar & Grill. The decor was sad but the couple wanted the place to ooze "Hawaii". The menu consisted of mainly Italian food, although the eatery looked out onto the Pacific ocean. With access to some of the best fish on the planet, food expert Dennis wanted to reflect that in the new menu. Siri and Sunny were elated with the restaurant's makeover however, it doesn't seem to be on Trip Advisor or Instagram. The restaurant could be doing really well, but perhaps this wasn't a success story like the other restaurants.


We wanted to expand our global culinary expertise even further on Celebrity Edge. To bring the world on board, and to inspire the palates of our savvy travelers even more. To bring that vision to life, we designed exciting new specialty restaurants found nowhere else at sea.


Overall, Restaurants on the Edge a fun show that serves as an advert for the restaurants but also is fun to watch. I do believe that it lost itself towards the end of the series but did showcase many, many interesting things that are often not shown on mainstream TV which is great.


Bohn: Great question. The producers had a big part in this. We were specifically looking for restaurants with a great view but needed help, and places that had terrible reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor. We worked with some tourist boards, so we got some local input too.


Liberato: We had a wish list that myself and the other executive producers had. Now that Season 1 is available to watch, people are sending me photos of their restaurants from all over the world and asking me how they can be on Season 2.


Bohn: Whenever we'd go look at the restaurants, one common thing was that they were always empty. That's a clue right there. From a design perspective, all of them looked unkempt and disorganized. The décor hadn't been touched in years. They were just not inviting. For me, that was great, because I had my work cut out for me.


Prescott: I definitely look at restaurants differently than I ever did. I used to be a musician, and there's something very similar: At concerts it was impossible for me to not look at everything, from the equipment to the light plant. Now I do that with restaurants.


Over the course of two seasons, the crew has traveled to various parts of the world, from Hong Kong to Costa Rica, to assist restaurants that need a little help with their menus, decor, or both. Watching these experts share their knowledge made the show a hit, as it aired its first season in February of 2020 with season 2 debuting a few months later in May. There hasn't been word yet of whether season 3 is in the cards, but here's what we'd expect if future installments do end up happening.


Restaurants on the Edge doesn't focus on places in the center of big cities. These are eateries on the edge of society, off the beaten path where people who really want a good meal have to travel to in order to enjoy. As such, they're found in some of the most scenic, beautiful places on Earth, and we would expect Netflix to renew it for more adventures here, very soon.


Restaurants on the Edge is equal parts travelogue and fixer-upper show. Nick Liberato, Dennis Prescott, and Karin Bohn visit some of the most gorgeous destinations in the world to spruce up failing restaurants that have world-class views but subpar food and decor. Netflix has yet to announce if Restaurants on the Edge will return for Season 3, but there's seemingly no end to potential new clients for the trio to help if the show is renewed.


Bohn explained to Newsweek that the producers played a major part in choosing the Restaurants on the Edge locations for Season 1. "We were specifically looking for restaurants with a great view but needed help, and places that had terrible reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor," she explained. "We worked with some tourist boards, so we got some local input too."


This may have changed due to the show's success, though. Liberato said that while they originally had a wish list of destinations, now people are just sending him photos of their restaurants and asking how they can be on the show. It doesn't appear that there's any official application page for the show, but there is a Restaurants on the Edge Instagram. Maybe now's the time to slide into their DMs and tell them how much you love the show, and/or suggest new locations that need revitalizing?


They started planning in February, had it all outlined in March, but had no idea the industry would change so drastically after COVID-19. Still, it turned out to be an ideal time to launch their venture because so many restaurants need help right now.

This week on California Cooking, Jessica is hanging out with chef and restaurateur Nick Liberato. Nick is quite the busy guy; he has 3 daughters ages 5 and under, 2 restaurants in Venice and his show Restaurants on the Edge just came out on Netflix. We talked about his new show, his travels around the world, and how he brings life back into distressed restaurants. Then, he taught Jess how to cook up the most epic mussels dish.


Originally from Philadelphia, Chef Nick Liberato began his career in food stands in the Italian market in South Philly. Surfing took him to the west coast where he began a thriving catering company and acquired and transformed the longstanding Venice fixture, The Venice Whaler. He made a similar move as the Executive Chef of The Pier House, another Venice, California hotspot. Now with 28 years of culinary experience and known for helping failing restaurants bloom in Los Angeles and beyond, be on the lookout for his new concept opening in Philadelphia.


The beauty of locations is one of the reasons this restaurant is sailing and not being sunk deep. The name of the show itself tells a lot of stories within. The restaurants the show goes to are on the edge of fantastic views but are also on the edge of failure in terms of their business.


Knowing what values and ethics the space would show after the latter we tend to vibe in with what is trendy and forget what being rooted in traditionality could bring in. These restaurants are facing problems not only because of the vibes but also because of the type of food being served.


Now, do you see how our long-term traditions help in bringing back the lost connection with the outer world? This was one of the methods that were actually implemented in one of the restaurants in Singapore which changed the entire look and vibe of the restaurant.


Restaurants on the Edge is the latest food show coming to Netflix. In a gist, this new restaurant renovation show is Restaurant: Impossible meets Love It or List It vibes, with the drawing card being restaurants at incredible locations around the world.


The featured restaurants are literally on the edge - financially and physically, and through the magic of television, are transformed to unleash their true potential. It's a familiar TV formula, but as with its predecessors, this travel-food-renovation-makeover combo may just prove to be difficult to resist.


The streaming service is featuring VU Bistro in Fountain Hills, in its original series "Restaurants on the Edge." The show highlights restaurants around the world with spectacular views, and VU Bistro was the first to be chosen in the continental states.


The timing is a positive, too, with the episode debuting just three days before Arizona restaurants can reopen. Hake aims to reopen dine-in services at her restaurant on Tuesday, in accordance with the latest guidelines from the state.


She says the titular phrase "on the edge" feels like it has an extra meaning now. The coronavirus shutdowns have been perhaps her biggest challenge yet. She's been in awe of strong support from loyal customers, and she hopes the Netflix boost can bring in some new crowds.


In the series, three renowned international gastronomy and design experts travel around the world and help restaurants improve the complete gastronomic experience they offer. Last year, Canadian chef and influencer Dennis Prescott, interior designer Karin Bohn and American chef and renowned expert in restaurant management Nick Liberato visited Slovenia and filmed an episode presenting the natural and cultural gems of Slovenia through gastronomy. 041b061a72
