It was here. Then, it was gone.
No, we're not talking about Greenberry's, though that caught a lot of people by surprise, as well. We're talking about Yo & Papa, formerly Calaloo Cafe, formerly, well, open.
Shortly after St. Patrick's Day last year, the restaurant–known for its outdoor seating in the summer–closed its doors for business. All was quiet. It was messy. Then, it was cleaned up a little and the sign for Yo & Papa was taken down.
Then, all was quiet again. Recently, as the Morris County St. Patrick's Day Parade in Morristown approached, rumors began to spread that something–anything–would open up there for Parade Day, as people had seen workers cleaning up the joint once more.
Yet, today, it remains closed.
So, in this week's "Occupy This Space," we're asking people once again what they would like to see occupy the former Yo & Papa. Another restaurant? A bar? Something completely different? Chime in.
