Posted by

Restaurants on the Edge follows three food experts traveling the world to rescue struggling restaurants located at breathtaking locations.

Former musician, food stylist, and passionate chef Dennis Prescott joined award-winning interior designer Karin Bohn and guru restaurateur Nick Liberato (who appeared for three seasons on Spike TVs hit show Bar Rescue), to give failing eateries one last chance to succeed.

Restaurants on the Edge Location

The trio spent 2019 traveling Europe, Asia, and America, bailing out restaurants at incredible spots that are usually hidden away.

In each episode, the hosts embark on a journey to the culture and context of the country where they are, to unleash the true potential of the featured establishment. The magic of television will transform outdated and drab restaurants into vibrant and profitable businesses.

According to some reports, up to 13 episodes have been projected, including more locations in Finland, Arizona, Slovenia, or Hawaii.

However, a press release from the producer company Marblemedia, the same team behind the glass-blowing competition series Blown Away, confirmed that the first season is going to be released including six episodes only.

The initial Restaurants on the Edge locations were filmed in Malta, Hong Kong, Canada, Costa Rica, Austria, and St. Lucia. Doing some research we already found all the locations where the series was filmed.
