The Real Jerk moving to new Queen Street E. location - CityNews

Fans of The Real Jerk won’t have to travel very far to get dinner — the popular and decades-old Caribbean restaurant is moving just a block down the street.

The restaurant will be serving customers for the final time on Sunday after 24 years at its location on Queen Street East at Broadview Avenue. The eatery will then move down the street to 625 Queen St. E., right before the bridge over the Don Valley Parkway.

Restaurant staff confirmed the new location to CityNews.ca on Friday morning.

The popular eatery is holding a farewell party on Saturday starting at 7 p.m.

“Lily and I want to say thank you to the community for 24 great years at Queen and Broadview.  Any new location will take at least two months before we are ready to re-open” owner Ed Pottinger said earlier this month.

“It will be a tearful goodbye to Queen and Broadview. We had so many great memories and that’s the nature of business when you love what you do.”

Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous; is not proud; is not conceited; does not act foolishly; is not selfish; is not easily provoked to anger; keeps no record of wrongs; takes no pleasure in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. ~I Corinthians 13:4-7
