Blackberry's closing, everything for sale

Blackberry's is closing its doors forever.
Plainfield's Blackberry's Restaurant is closing its doors for good, according to an email received yesterday.

Owner Shelly Withers is overseeing a liquidation sale today, from 10 AM - 6 PM, at which everything in the restaurant will be offered for sale.

The restaurant gained local fame when it was the subject of a Kitchen Nightmares show in September 2011 (see my post here).

Unfortunately, it has not been able to contend with the economic downturn and the location's main deficit -- a lack of parking.

For more information, call Shelly at (908) 755-3444 or drop into the restaurant at the corner of Watchung Avenue and East 5th Street.

A sad day for Plainfield fans of soul food.

seen the writing on the wall when they appeared on Kitchen Nightmares.

Just think, if they had a TV show called Mayor's Nightmares and this happened, we all be doing the Irish Jig this morning

Shelly Withers must be the biggest b*tch I have ever seen. I could not fathom her total disrespect after he transformed her restaurant and she ignores him. Gives him no respect. I wish the worst things upon her.

shelly obviously sabotaged her moms dream. how selfish and self-absorbed. is she on drugs? It sure seemed like it. shelly is a mess and didn't care and its a wonder why it shut down. she tried to get whatever money she could out of ramseys kitchen donations. wow how sad

That is pretty cold Arsenefaithful, she did something personal to offend you? I applaud her for trying. The key to success is failure so hopefully she doesn't give up and learns from her mistakes.
