King's Kitchen going into Harper's Grill spot

Jim Noble's not-for-profit King's Kitchen will be going into the former Harper's Grill spot in uptown. Details to come on this place that will employ and train the chronically unemployed, offer local and comfort food, and use its funds for established centers to help feed the hungry in Charlotte and elsewhere.

What is an "Uptownl" spot. Please be a professional and check your spelling.

That was a typo in the main web page's headline. I've alerted those folks, who do fast work, so I expect it'll be fixed quickly.

Horrible idea. What happened to the people who have been working at Harpers? Where did those jobs go? Why didn't Kings Kitchen buy a restaurant that was already empty instead of taking the jobs of the people at Harpers Grill? There is an empty bar one block away.

@anonymous 4:33pm- What a picky and asinine thing to decide to point out- rather than see the obvious information and message the piece was offering. Nothing better to do? Your contribution to society is what? Before you respond, my contribution may be minimal, but i am not trying to advance my thoughts by breaking down someone else. Feel free to proof my post for any slipups or grammatical errors as you see fit.

BTW- this is a great thing Jim is doing and I will absolutely choose to spend my money there.

Perhaps they were transferred to other Harpers spots elsewhere.

Yeah, 4:33, I get tired of all these haters hammering the Observer and their staff because of a typo here or there when they are trying to get us some content on line (free) as quickly as possible. Maybe you need to sit and watch Fox News and examine their inaccuracies and lies instead of worrying about a typo on story about somebody trying to do good in the community.

Anonymous at 6:15 - you missed the word "former" Harper's Grill. In other words, they have, or are in the process of closing.

Thank you for this update! I have been following this great idea for quite awhile. I would love to know how I can help!

What a completely wonderful thing Mr. Noble is doing. I have dined at his restaurant in the Southpark area, which is first-rate. He may certainly count on my patronage and support of this great idea!

Davis H and 9:06pm - maybe I expect the website of the paper from the largest city in our great state to actually look professional instead of like it was run by someone in his or her spare time. 9:06 - nobody injected politics into this except you; actually I very much support what he is doing and my politics has nothing to do with it, you must have issues.
