As you may recall, with clenched jaw and trembling fingers we typed away a post last week counterpunching Charles Ferruzza’s Fat City jab the Waid’s. Well, with the dust settled and the benefit of a few days of reflection, we’re ready to make up. Mostly because Ferruzza’s Fat City colleague Jonathan Bender published a love letter to Bloomsbury Bistro and its proprietor, Cari Jo Cavalcante.
With a location tucked away in the Mission Road Antique Mall, a number of people didn’t give Cavalcante or the restaurant much hope. But more than ten years later, the restaurant’s gained a loyal following.
“When I was getting ready to open, one of my instructors from JCCC looked at me and looked at this place. He said, ‘Well, you’re not going to make it. I wish you the best, but this is a bad location.’ And yet, it’s turned out so great,” Cavalcante told Bender.
