Need Help Finding a Show

A year or two back, I was watching a show on tv and I can't remember which show it was. I believe it was aired on MOJO but I could be mistaken. The show was basically just talking about the restaurant and then showing the chef cooking a few signature dishes. The specific episode I remember had this cool restaurant that cooked with a brick oven. The chef would put fish (i think he was using skate) in a terracota dish and then cook it in the brick oven.

After doing some looking around, it seems like I might have been watching Daniel Boulud's show, but I have skimmed through the episodes and can't find the episode that I remember. Does anyone remember watching this episode?

  1. Mike (?) Colameco has a show kind of in that format - it shows on the NYC PBS station Sundays at 6, I think - I don't recall a specific fish dish, though.

    1. i know you said skate, but could it have been salmon? in the Campanile episode, Boulud prepared "White Copper River salmon baked in clay with fennel and sweet and sour figs"...

        Thanks for the replies. I think I found the show, although I can't find any video available. I believe the show was called Restaurant Revamp with Bobby Flay. Only one episode was ever aired. It seems that the restaurant in question is Peasant in NYC. Thanks again.

          I remember seeing that episode, much of the food was baked in a brick oven, in a very small kitchen. Mr. Flay assisted the owners in revamping; apparently business was in a downward spiral at that time. The restaurant is located on Elizabeth St. in Nolita. The episode was probably done in early '02 or '03 and they got a nice review in NY Magazine in '09, still preparing a solid Italian menu in the wood-fired oven.
          Occasionally you can catch episodes of Restaurant Revamp, with either Bobby or another host, on FN at around 3:30-4 am.

            Currently, FN has a show titled Restaurant Makeover, showing on Fridays at 9:30 am, I'm not sure if it's the same hosts (chef and design expert,) however.

      2. Could it possibly be 'Great Chef's'?
