Celebrity chef Robert Irvine and his team of designers from the Food Network's 'Restaurant Impossible' reality TV show were in Auburn this week tearing down and rebuilding the Spunky Monkey Bar & Grill.

Workers revamped the struggling restaurant on Second Street Southeast. The popular series challenges Irvine and his crew to "flip" a restaurant in two days and on a $10,000 budget.

The new-look eatery was unveiled during a filmed Tuesday evening grand reopening.
