This is some very sad news: Bob Kantor, the founder and owner of ~MEMPHIS MINNIE’S~, has passed away. He apparently died of a heart attack while scuba diving with his wife in the Caribbean last Monday, so tragic. Minnie’s Facebook page has the announcement, and Haighteration has a nice piece on Mr. Kantor and his restaurant. The manager at Minnie’s, Tom Campbell, says the team is working hard to move forward and keep the restaurant open in his absence. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and the whole crew at Memphis Minnie’s.
