Hooked JC, a New Seafood Joint, is Opening in Bergen-Lafayette

Hooked JC | In the News | Co-Owners

Built in 1848, the building has been home to a few restaurants over the years, and since April, partners and first-time restaurant owners Natalie Miniard and Tory Aunspach have been working tirelessly, uncovering what the space was maybe always meant to be Hooked JC.

Natalie and Tory go way back. Their story sounds as serendipitous as finding perfect pine paneling under water damaged sheetrock, but detail after detail makes it clear that more than chance brought them here. Natalie and Tory went to the same middle school and high school in Florida, riding the bus together for years; fast-forward to not too long ago when they reconnected through the magic of Facebook and each were in a uniquely qualified position to partner up on this restaurant adventure.
