Stafford County restaurant to be on Food Network show
County Fare, a diner-style family restaurant that opened five years ago near Stafford Courthouse, has been chosen to be featured on the second season of “Restaurant: Impossible,” a Food Network show where celebrity chef Robert Irvine tries to turn around failing eateries with a 48-hour, $10,000 makeover.
Eric Green, who owns County Fare, will essentially be kicked out of his business next weekend (April 30) so that Irvine and his crew can come in and do a total re-invention of the interior and menu. Green will be brought back in May 1, before the restaurant hosts a grand re-opening, which will be taped for the show.
Interested in getting in on the action? Call County Fare to make reservations for the May 1 re-opening. The number is 540/720-6900.
Learn more about Green and why he chose to apply for the show in next week’s Business section.
