Bon Jovi's 'Robin Hood' Restaurant.

Jon Bon Jovi broke into the culinary world last week, opening a community restaurant named  'JBJ Soul Kitchen' in New Jersy, last Wednesday.

Rockers-as-restaurateurs isn't anything new, but what sets this restaurant apart is the fact that it will be a "pay what you can" establishment.

 The menu lists no prices, just "suggested donations" to cover the cost ($20 for a three-course meal, for example). Moreover, visitors can "pay" for their meals by volunteering at the restaurant or at other local charitable organizations.

The restaurant is housed in an old mechanic shop. The idea was inspired by a story on NBC News about the SAME (So All May Eat) restaurant in Denver, [].

In an interview with New York Magazine's Grub Street blog, Bon Jovi clarified that the JBJ Soul Kitchen won't be a "tray service-type of soul kitchen." "Picture the coolest brasserie in your hometown, that’s what this is," says the rocker. "It’s the hottest-looking restaurant in this town. We have to get rid of a few stigmas attached to the word volunteering and making a difference."
