As reported by BoingBoing, Jon Bon Jovi and his wife, Dorothea Hurley, have opened a “pay what you can afford” restaurant in Red Bank, New Jersey to help families in need. The restaurant, Soul Kitchen, serves wholesome, gourmet food made with fresh ingredients grown in the restaurant’s garden, along with other local produce.
From the website: “A community restaurant with no prices on the menu; customers donate to pay for their meal. If you are unable to donate you may do volunteer work in exchange for your family’s meal.”
NJ.com reports: “The décor is upscale. Patrons don’t wait in line — they are waited on.”
