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.
