Downtown’s The Little Tea Shop will reopen its doors on Tuesday, Aug. 21.
The Southern-style restaurant at 69 Monroe Ave. closed in July following the passing of co-owner James “Jimmy” Phillip Lauck.
The sign announcing the reopening is posted on the door next to a photo of Jimmy, sitting Indian-style on a curb, comfortably clad in a Christian Brothers High School polo, suspenders, ball cap and sunglasses. His obituary is posted to the left.
Jimmy is survived by many loved ones, including his wife, Suhair “Su” Lauck. Everyone give Su a big hello and pass along the news of the reopening to your friends and colleagues.
