“Picture the coolest brasserie in your hometown, that’s what this is,” Bon Jovi told New York magazine about his new restaurant ‘Jon Bon Jovi’s Soul Kitchen’ that opened in Redbank in New Jersey last Wednesday. “It’s the hottest-looking restaurant in this town.”
Well, it might look hot, but you don’t have to be a celebrity to eat there, far from it. You can actually choose to pay what you think is fair for your meal or volunteer your services instead.
“At a time when one in five households are living at or below the poverty level, and at a time when one out of six Americans is food insecure, this is a restaurant whose time has come,” Bon Jovi said. “This is a place based on and built on community – by and for the community.”
What do you think? Would you pay or wash dishes in the kitchen?
