PORTLAND — Portland-area restaurants that have seen the recession take a big bite out of their business may be able to get a little help from the Food Network.

"Restaurant Impossible" host Robert Irvine.

The new Food Network show "Restaurant: Impossible" is casting in the Portland area for failing restaurants that are at risk of closing.

Restaurants that are chosen must be willing to overhaul their menu, decor and theme in just two days, with the help of celebrity chef Robert Irvine.

According to associate producer Justin Leonard, the show is looking for full-service restaurants with owners who have strong, outgoing personalities. Being a family-run business is a plus.

Applications are available online at www.RestaurantImpossible.com

The second season of "Restaurant: Impossible" begins Jan. 19 at 10 p.m.
