Robert Irvine is a master of conflict resolution. Whether it was as the host of Food Network’s former series Restaurant: Impossible or The CW’s The Robert Irvine Show, the celebrity chef has no shortage of experience fixing problems. To say this is an enviable skill in the restaurant world would be a vast understatement. Irvine recently touched down in a Maverick helicopter and smashed an ice sculpture to welcome his new restaurant, Robert Irvine’s Public House, to the Las Vegas dining scene. Irving spoke with FSR in a past story about some of the trials and tribulations of being a restaurateur, and how to make it against all odds. Here were some of the highlights. Pictures are from Irvine's USO tour to Yokota Air Base in Japan.
