BRENDAN FITTERER | Times Chef Robert Irvine, left, and general contractor and designer Tom Bury remodeled the Portu-Greek Cafe in Hudson in two days on a budget of $10,000 in hopes of reviving it to profitability for the Food Network reality show Restaurant: Impossible.

HUDSON The story of a Hudson seafood restaurant that failed to turn a profit in eight years will air at 10 p.m. Wednesday on Restaurant Impossible, a Food Network show that features celebrity chef Robert Irvine saving struggling restaurants.

The episode, "No Day at the Beach," will feature Irvine's attempt to rescue Portu-Greek Cafe from collapse.

According to the reality show's website, the family business is in jeopardy because of 54-year-old patriarch Jordan Lindiakos' differences with his kids over its management. Irvine intervenes and provides advice and a makeover of the establishment at 6928 Clark St.

Lindiakos, who has been sworn to secrecy about the show's content, said his family plans to watch privately at the restaurant after closing time at 9. The show will re-air three hours later at 1 a.m. Thursday. For more information about Port-Greek, find it on Facebook or call (727) 863-3200.
