Poco's has had a difficult few years, closing briefly in early 2009 before reopening later that summer. Owner Lorenza "Poco" Gutierrez, who converted the former Waid's restaurant into a hopping brunch spot, passed away this May. Thus, it's not surprising that Irvine would take on the diner for a renovation. His show specializes in restaurants that need makeovers (the gimmick being that the makeover has to be done in two days and for $10,000). The new Poco's debuts in less than 24 hours. The dining room is full for tomorrow, but Poco's is taking reservations through Saturday. You can leave a message at 816-931-2526.
