Jon Bon Jovi has opened his charity restaurant in Red Bank. Jovi has named it as ‘Pay What You Can’ which has intended to encourage volunteer work in the area. However, the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Kitchen is an establishment specializing in healthy variations on classic soul food dishes and will not have prices on its menu. Besides, the diners can either earn free meals by doing volunteer work in the community or pay a suggested donation.

The restaurant was founded by Bon Jovi’s JBJ Soul Foundation and has been serving meals since 2009. But, now it is opening the new permanent location in an 1100-square-foot space that used to be an auto body shop. During an interview, Bon Jovi has told that JBJ Soul Kitchen will not be a tray service-type of soul kitchen. The rocker said that picture the coolest brasserie in your hometown, that’s what this is. He added that it is the hottest-looking restaurant in this town and they have to get rid of a few stigmas attached to the word volunteering and making a difference.

However, it has taken a year and $250,000 but the restaurant now rivals any of its competitors in trendy Red Bank with entrees like cornmeal crusted catfish with red beans and rice, grilled chicken breast with homemade basil mayo and rice pilaf. In addition it also has grilled salmon with soul seasoning, sweet potato mash and sautéed greens and many of which were grown in the herb and vegetable garden right outside the restaurant doors.
