Jennifer Russo-Fitzgerald of The Market by Jennifer's: "I Think We're Finally Where We Want to Be"

Jennifer Russo-Fitzgerald Owner The Market by Jennifer's

It's been about five months since The Market by Jennifer's opened its doors on the west-side of the Gaslight Square shopping center in Arcadia. And if you haven't been into the restaurant since its first few weeks, you might be surprised by the changes that have already been made during this short amount of time.

For owner and experienced caterer Jennifer Russo-Fitzgerald, nailing down a concept that best fits the neighborhood has been a bit like trying to hit a moving target. But she's confident they're getting closer everyday and are continuing to make small changes to help the restaurant become the cozy, neighborhood place she originally envisioned.

"I think we're finally where we want to be," she says.
