There's another restaurant getting a makeover in our neck of the woods via Robert Irvine and his team behind "Restaurant Impossible." This time around, Knife & Fork Gastropub (20626 Stone Oak Pkwy, Ste 103) will get a $10,000 makeover and there are ways you can be a part of it.

The grand re-opening is slated for Sunday, October 5 at 7 p.m. (although fans who witnessed the remodel of Mama Lee's Soul Food at 6060 Montgomery) will remember the remodel ate up several hours into the evening). The general public can make reservations by calling Knife & Fork Gastropub @ (210) 497-7111.

But if you'd rather be more hands on about change, Food Network has put out a call for volunteers to help remodel the space. Here are the deets on that:

We are looking for individuals to help with the renovation of the restaurant within the two days. Volunteers will be painting, crafting, construction, remodeling, cleaning, decorating etc. (depending on your skill set). Always looking for skilled contractors, electricians, plumbers and painters to help out and donate their time. The volunteer schedule is as follows:

Shift #1 - Saturday, October 4: 1-8 pm

Shift #2 - Saturday, October 4: 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Shift #3 - Sunday, October 5th: 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Those interested in volunteering are encouraged to email associate producer Jayson  (, subject line FN 1002 TX Volunteer) by Friday, September 26th, 1:00pm, with preferred shift or shifts, full name, email address, cell number and skill set or related profession (ex: plumber or painter). Only those with an email confirmation can volunteer.
