When they were featured on Restaurant Impossible, and Robert arrives at Forks and Flavors, he meets up with married co-owners David and Darnell. Roberts soon learns that David, the restaurant’s executive chef, is struggling to run his kitchen under the shadow of his husband’s big personality. It’s Darnell’s way or the highway, and his overwhelming need to be right all the time is wreaking havoc on the day-to-day operations of their business.
