The Food Network television show will record the Egg Harbor City, N.J., club’s dramatic reveal on May 15. Chef Robert Irvine, who hosts the program, noted that this marks the first time the show has featured a country club.
Pomona Golf & Country Club in Egg Harbor City, N.J., is getting the makeover treatment from Chef Robert Irvine and his crew on “Restaurant: Impossible,” this week, the Pleasantville (N.J.)-based Press of Atlantic City reported.
The dramatic “reveal” is scheduled for Thursday evening. Irvine, the face of the Food Network hit, confirms the plan on his Facebook page, the Press reported.
“Restaurant Impossible will be taping at Pomona Golf & Country Club. There will be a grand re-opening on Thursday, May 15th at 7 p.m.,” the star chef wrote on Facebook. “The general public can call to make reservations for the night.”
Irvine, who’s familiar with South Jersey’s food scene from his days as Executive Chef at two Atlantic City casino hotels, added a second item about his plans on his public Facebook page, the Press reported.
“On my way to Egg Harbor, N.J. to help save the Pomona Golf & Country Club. This is our first country club on ‘Restaurant: Impossible.’ Should be a very interesting challenge,” he wrote.
