About Lemon Leaf Cafe

While living in California, JR and his friends started a supper club. Every Thursday night they went to a different house where the hose was requires to prepare the meal from scratch. One night, it was JR's turn. Waylaid by a late day at work, he had no time to stop at the market for fresh ingredients or flowers for the table. His friends wouldn't let him off the hook.

Always clever and resourceful, and with ingredients he had on hand, JR made his grandmother's chicken and dumplings. A quick trip to the backyard produced fresh lemons and lemon leaves to decorate the table. From then on, JR's dining room became known as "The Lemon Leaf Cafe."

Returning home from California, JR brought with him the spirit of that evening: always creative, always freshly prepared.
