​The episode of the new Food Network show Restaurant: Impossible featuring Bridgeton Italian restaurant Meglio's Italian Grill & Bar will air on Wednesday, February 16, at 9 p.m. There will be a repeat airing at midnight and also at 5 p.m. on Sunday, February 20.

Restaurant: Impossible is a makeover show à la Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares in which host Robert Irvine tries to "rescue" troubled eateries. Here is how the Food Network describes the Meglio's episode:

At Meglio's in Bridgeton, Mo., near St. Louis, Robert finds an Italian restaurant stuck in the past with a laundry list of problems. They claim to cook old family recipes, but Robert discovers that the extent of their cooking involves opening frozen food bags. After getting over the initial shock, he attempts to retrain the cooking staff and explain why they should provide quality food for customers using a smaller menu and fresher ingredients. With a last-minute design dilemma and an unfocused owner, Robert faces tough odds to make this mission a success.

I've never eaten at Meglio's, so I can't compare the menu currently on the restaurant's website to its menu from before the episode was filmed, but it certainly reads as if it has been revised in more trendy food-speak. I have a call into the restaurant to find out more.
