The Potter’s House Soul Food Bistro signals move

The business appears to be relocating from a site 4 miles east.

A banner sign at the former Outback Steakhouse in the  Regency Park Shopping Center shows that The Potter’s House Soul Food Bistro is coming soon.

Potter’s House also is listed on the landlord’s website as the tenant in 7,959 square feet at the shopping center, at 9400 Atlantic Blvd.

The business appears to be relocating from a site 4 miles east.

In December, Angel McLaughlin, chief strategy officer of The Potter’s House International Ministries, said the lease was up at 11876 Atlantic Blvd., at southwest Atlantic and Kernan boulevards.

The Potter’s House Christian Fellowship at 5119 Normandy Blvd. in West Jacksonville opened the first Soul Food Bistro in 1998 with the original name of The Potter’s House Cafe.

Potter’s House Soul Food Bistro II opened at Kernan and Atlantic on Jan. 1, 2013, in the 7,150-square-foot former O’Charley’s that was vacated a few years prior. 

Outback closed at Regency Park in late 2016. The city is reviewing a permit application for Covenant Contracting Co. Inc. to renovate the space at a cost of $55,000.

The Potter’s House Soul Food menu includes fried and baked chicken, pork chops, fish and other comfort foods, such as butter beans, candied yams, collard greens and macaroni and cheese.

Homemade desserts include sweet potato pie, red velvet cake and peach cobbler.

McLaughlin is the daughter of Bishop Vaughn McLaughlin, the pastor of Potter’s House Christian Fellowship.
