Say it isn’t so. Glocally, is sad to report that Je’s Restaurant has closed for a second time. Earlier this year, January 6th, nearly 7 months to the day, we reported that Je’s closing was premature. With the large community’s heart swell support, the landmark restaurant of 43 years was able to serve “Grits and Fish” for another day. The un-official reports suggest that there was little interest in running Newark’s Soul food landmark. We hope that another revival is possible, but we all need to brace for the reality that this time its a done deal. We will keep you posted .
On another positive note regarding soul food, Vonda;s Kitchen will be featured on WBLS-FM (107.5 – New York) on Tues, July 9th during the Steve Harvey Morning Show. ‘Doctor’ Bob Lee’s interview with Chef Vonda McPherson of Vonda’s Kitchen, is scheduled to air at approximately 9:10 am. The segment is called The Breakfast Club, be sure to tune in!
