The owner of the Parkside Café and Main Street Pint & Plate in Bristol, JR Rusgrove, will make an appearance on Good Morning America tomorrow morning!
JR wrote this on his Facebook page...“I have been asked by the producers of Good Morning America in New York City to come there and do a cooking segment with the morning crew, which includes my very good friend Robin Roberts. I’ve been honored with many accolades over the years, but to be asked to share the stage with a collection of celebrity chefs from around the country, some of whom I consider to be my culinary hero’s, is just something that I’m still trying to wrap my head around. All I can say is thank you to those kind folks in New York City for giving me the chance to run with the big “food” dogs...if only for the day. It’s truly a dream come true. “And...as much as I am excited (and honored) to be apart of this incredible opportunity, I’m even more thrilled that I will be introduced as the Chef / Owner of restaurants located in my hometown of Bristol, CT !! Just getting to hear our city mentioned (in a positive light) on a nationally televised program that reaches out to millions of viewers each day makes this event that much more amazing for me and my family...We are Bristol proud !!”
Bristol is proud of you JR! CHEERS!
