The crew of food television show Restaurant: Impossible scrambled to meet their 7 p.m. deadline last Thursday to get Maple Tree Cafe up and running again after a 48-hour makeover. Eater Vegas photographer Chelsea McManus tried to snag some photos of the renovations, only to have host Robert Irvine “affectionately tell me to close the door or he’ll beat me,” she says.

Afterward, the staff put up a screen to hide the changes within. McManus shot the photos about an hour before the opening.

No photographers were harmed in the shooting of these images, but you do get a look at the new tables and some of the decor that went inside.

The Chinatown restaurant serves up American fare, mainly breakfast items, and now has a lunch menu with burgers and other sandwiches. Irvine came in to revamp the ailing menu with a budget of $10,000 and a crew of designers.

The episode airs on the Food Network later this season.
