Gloria Carter has officially made the leap from rapper Jay Z's mom to restaurateur: She opened Diamondz N Da Ruff, a small restaurant in Newark, New Jersey, this week. The space is cozy with a lounge-like vibe. There are small tables throughout the dining area, purple trim inside and out, and a large plush couch near the entrance.
The menu features items like sliders, chicken wings, and fish sandwiches. In addition to lunch and dinner, the restaurant will soon open for breakfast. Customers can expect traditional breakfast fare, including pancakes and eggs. Diamondz N Da Ruff will also host "Soul Food Sundays," which includes a brunch menu of classic soul food dishes. Plus, it will offer karaoke on Fridays. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Sunday. Go, check out photos of the space and menu below:
