At Jon Bon Jovi’s Soul Kitchen, Friendship is the Daily Special
Founded in 2011 by veteran rocker and serial social entrepreneur Jon Bon Jovi, Soul Kitchen is a community restaurant located in Red Bank, N.

The concept is similar to the philosophy that fuels Shanaka Fernando’s Lentil As Anything, a chain of restaurants that allows guests to pay what they can afford or wish to contribute.
