Season 2 - Episode 2
Joe is too proud to change. He opened Italian Garden 15 years ago and he feels his “authentic” hot table is top notch. But with cheesy Italian paraphernalia, grotty old tiles and bland pastas and sandwiches, this space is more 90s cafeteria than “Tavola Calda”. Restaurant Takeover is sending in chef Adam Hynam-Smith and designer Paula Velez to break through to “Status-Quo Joe” and make him realize his stubbornness is losing him money.
