Salad lovers have another reason to rejoice.

The salad bar at J’s Restaurant in Three Star Mall has reopened. The business itself reopened on April 27, but without a salad bar.

“I feel like we’ve done as much as we can for as long as we can,” said J’s owner Junior Petit, on Friday. “We closed March 20 and stayed closed until April 27. When we reopened, it was without a salad bar. I’m hoping to have it open before 12 o’clock today, if I get everything in that I ordered,” he stated Friday morning.

Petit did check county and state regulations before making the decision and will be asking salad lovers to protect themselves and others when visiting the bar.

“I do have disposable gloves that I want customers to wear when they are touching utensils of the salad bar. We hope everyone abides by that, because we will enforce it. Our priority is the safety of our customers. I’m sure I’ll have one person who wants to push that and we’ll deal with that. Depending on the mood I’m in, I might order them to leave.”

J’s Restaurant is open Monday thru Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. The business is closed on Sundays.
