Kuzina by Sofia Joins Athens Cafe in Closing at New Jersey Spot

September 12, 2016

Cherry Hills, New Jersey’s Sawmill Village hasn’t turned out to be such a good spot for Greek restaurants.

Kuzina by Sofia, which took the spot in 2007 from Athens Cafe, has also closed its doors now too after filing for bankruptcy protection in January this year, for a second time.

In a note thanking customers, chef Sofia Karakasidou Khoury and her husband, Assad Khoury, wrote that “a decision made a few weeks ago to close and sell the restaurant business has come to fruition this past week.”

The note added that the Khourys would focus on catering and wholesale, and will schedule a series of monthly theme dinners. The first will be Oct. 1 at the Potato Homestead Farm in Sewell, it said, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Kuzina by Sofia had been active in South Jersey, staging frequent demonstrations at Whole Foods and for a year, offering its cuisine at Camden Riversharks baseball games, the paper said.


ATHENS - A regulation in an omnibus bill will allow repatriated Greeks from Albania and the former Soviet Union to receive full national pensions, Labor and Social Protection Minister Kostis Hatzidakis said during a discussion in Greek Parliament on Tuesday.
