The Food Network is heading to Baton Rouge for two tapings of their hit show "Restaurant: Impossible."

The Chef Robert Irvine-hosted show will be filming over the next two weeks at a couple of different Baton Rouge restaurants.

The first restaurant they'll be helping rescue will be Pimanyoli's located at 14241 Airline Highway. That filming will take place on Monday and Tuesday, September 12 and 13.

The second spot is Boil & Boux BR at 11777 Coursey Blvd on Saturday and Sunday, September 17 and 18.

And the cool thing is you can have a chance to be on television and enjoy some great food...we hope.

For each restaurant's taping, the show's producers are looking for folks to come eat. However, both events are first come, first served by email reservation.

If you're selected, you will receive a confirmation email close to the dinner date.

Reservations for Pimanyoli's are being accepted for lunch at 11:00 am on Monday, September 12, and for its grand re-opening dinner at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, September 13.

Reservations for guests ages eight and older should be emailed by noon on Friday, September 9 to Please use "Pimanyoli's Reservations" in the subject line.

The show will be covering the cost of the lunch meal but not the meal for the grand re-opening.
