After 16 years, Jack's Cafe, a snug, funky diner in Westwood, is set to close on Dec. 10.
Chef and owner Chris D'Eletto said the nearly three-year-old financial devastation COVID-19 had inflicted on his cozy, breakfast-lunch-and-dinner spot is the primary reason he plans to close its doors. But first, he'll throw a "thank-you" party for Westwood with free food and wine.
"We love Westwood. It has been such a loyal and loving community," said D'Eletto, who lives a half-mile from his restaurant in the borough. "If I'd catch a red light, I'd consider that a bad commute," he quipped.
D'Eletto said the cafe, whose red walls are covered in family photos and vinyl records (D'Eletto is a huge Springsteen fan), was struggling financially in the last few years.
"We would break even some weeks and some weeks it would cost me," he said. "I was keeping the cafe open so my guys could have a job." His staff, he said, are "family." Tears were shed when he announced the closing to them, he reported.
D'Eletto, however, said he is closing also because he plans to work with his son, Johnny, at Donut Villa Diner, a thriving restaurant that is about to open its fourth location in the Boston area. His son is its manager.
For several months, D'Eletto has been communing to Boston to help the restaurants set up. "I was doing it as a favor to my son," he said.
But when the owner put forward a "very generous offer" to come on board permanently, he said, "I decided to make the change."
He added, "It's been a great 16 years."
However, he said he does not plan to leave the metropolitan area.
"I love New Jersey, I love New York," he said. "I take acting classes in the city. I love the New York Giants. I have my season tickets. I'm not leaving here."
The goodbye party is scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. on Dec. 10. Among the free food that will be offered: chicken parm, sliders and mozzarella sticks.

Kimchi Smoke, one of the top barbecue spots in North Jersey, if not New Jersey, is closing its Westwood location.
Owner and pitmaster Robert Austin Cho announced on Instagram that the near seven-year-old spot will close in the next two months.
"We thank everyone who has visited us, supported us, dined in, took out, bought merchandise and sauce, ordered catering, wrote reviews, shared photos, posted photos...," he said. "There are just so many great things that happened."
Cho said that he will be concentrating on catering and its food truck, and that he has already signed up for several big barbecue events. He also pointed out that the Ridgewood location on Godwin Avenue is still open and that fans of his Westwood shop will "only have to travel six miles" to enjoy his award-winning brisket, pastrami, ribs and more.
He could not be reached for comment.
Cho originally opened his popular Southern-style Korean barbecue in a teeny space on Church Street in Bergenfield in 2016 but outgrew it quickly. In less than a year Kimchi Smoke moved into much larger quarters on Westwood's Center Avenue. Cho opened his Ridgewood location in 2022.
The Record’s restaurant critic Elisa Ung deemed Kimchi Smoke “worth the drive from anywhere in New Jersey.”
Kimchi Smoke is famous for, among many other items, its Chonut, a sloppy mess of a sandwich consisting of smoked brisket, crisp bacon, smoked kimchi, tangy cheese and Cho's signature Fatboy bourbon-chipotle sauce on a sweet glazed doughnut; its Not Cho Mama chili, smoked meat with baked beans; Cholander fries, spice-rubbed twice-fried French fries; and its ODB (Ole Dirty Bird), buttermilk fried chicken breast sandwich slathered with remoulade and sriracha.
Fans of Kimchi shared their reaction on Instagram.
"There is so much love and support for you in the New York, New Jersey area, no matter where we can get your food, the people are going to seek you out and find it," said one.
"Happy Ridgewood is still open," said another. "Moving to NJ from NYC has been a struggle, restaurant-wise. Yours is easily the one that feels as high-quality and adventurous as anything across the river, and far better than any BBQ within 500 miles."

Westwood is keeping things in the family and staying with their Guy.
The Westwood Board of Education approved longtime Cardinals offensive coordinator Bobby Guy as new head football coach Thursday night.
Guy, 38, is a Fair Lawn native who spent time as an assistant coach at Elmwood Park and Fair Lawn before joining the Cardinals staff in 2014, first under Vito Campanile and then Dennis Hard.
He inherits a program that is coming off a 11-1 season and a North 1, Group 2 sectional title, but Guy said the Cardinals can’t just sit back and look at their rings.
“If you rest on your laurels and say everything will be OK, that’s when things can go wrong,” Guy said. “There is something to putting in the work in the offseason and in the weight room. That’s what we had when Dennis was here. So we have that blueprint, and if we don’t put that work in then we aren’t worth writing about.”
Guy was a two-sport standout at Fair Lawn, where he was a third-team All-County tight end and a wrestler. After graduating from Fair Lawn in 2002, he played linebacker at Pace University. He graduated with a degree in business management but stayed on at Pace for two years as a graduate assistant and got his masters.
Guy stepped away from coaching for a year to work in the private sector, but realized his heart belonged on the sidelines. He got his first high school coaching job at Elmwood Park in 2010, then worked at his alma mater for two years. He came to Westwood in 2014, first working with wide receivers and defensive backs under Campanile as every level of the Cardinals football program went undefeated that season.
“I should have retired then,” Guy said with a laugh.
When Campanile left for Seton Hall Prep, Hard came in and promoted Guy to offensive coordinator. Guy said he’s worked at developing close relationships with his players.
“I think that’s probably one of the most important parts of the job in the sense that you can’t be friends with the kids, but you have to know the families and know their day-to-day lives," he said. "If I am the voice they are listening to on a regular basis, it has to come from somewhere that is natural and authentic."
It was a poorly kept secret that Guy was the pick at Westwood. He said he had players asking him all week once they saw the Board of Education agenda, but he told them it would have to wait until final approval was granted.
Maintaining the direction of the program was important in the decision to hire Guy, according to Westwood athletic director Daniel Vivino.
“There is a rich and proud tradition here and we’re excited about Coach Guy’s ability to continue that tradition following what a great job that Coach Hard did,” Vivino said. “Coach Guy is a teacher in the building. He’s a Cardinal through and through.”
Sam Selvam’s family gave him a mug that crystallizes his steely calmness in a single phrase: “In case of emergency, ask Sam.” When the 50-year-old Westwood, New Jersey, man realized he was having a heart attack in January 2022, he channeled this inborn composure. After taking an aspirin, Sam made two phone calls to ensure his 12-year-old would have transportation to and from sports practices.

Sam Selvam’s family gave him a mug that crystallizes his steely calmness in a single phrase: “In case of emergency, ask Sam.” When the 50-year-old Westwood, New Jersey, man realized he was having a heart attack in January 2022, he channeled this inborn composure. After taking an aspirin, Sam made two phone calls to ensure his 12-year-old would have transportation to and from sports practices. Then he called 911.
“It’s what I tell my boys: Think before you do something, and make sure you’re ready for any situation. Do good; be good,” says Sam, a corporate real estate consultant. “I was raised to always be prepared.”
But little could actually prepare Sam for what would unfold over the coming days. When first responders met him outside his home, he collapsed, suffering more sharp, debilitating chest pain. CPR kept him alive until his ambulance reached Pascack Valley Medical Center, where his condition became dire when another round of severe symptoms hit. Close to death, Sam was immediately airlifted by helicopter to Hackensack University Medical Center, where specialists blended expertise, the latest cardiovascular technology and medications to help him not only live, but thrive.
When Sam arrived at Hackensack, he was in cardiogenic shock. Hisheart was so weak it could not pump blood to the tissues. It was an all-hands-on-deck situation to make sure he had more than a 50/50 chance of surviving.
Admittedly, Sam’s lifestyle choices had placed his heart at risk. A pack-a-day smoker since his youth, the father of two also ate poorly. “Bacon was an appetizer and dessert for me, and I drank soda nonstop,” he recalls. But Sam’s prediabetes was in check, and he stayed active with his boys, often playing soccer and shooting baskets.
To shore up Sam’s failing heart, which was pumping blood at only 15 percent of capacity, an interventional cardiologist threaded a tiny pump called an Impella device into the heart through blood vessels in his leg. The device temporarily takes over the work of the organ to keep blood circulating properly while the heart rests and heals. The cardiac catheterization team also inserted a cage-like stent to open the left anterior descending artery—often dubbed the “widowmaker”—near Sam’s heart where plaque had ruptured, creating the clot that triggered Sam’s extensive heart attack episode.
Sam’s heart was still struggling. He was upgraded to a second, stronger Impella pump that could provide even more heart support, which was implanted by cardiac surgeon Yuriy Dudiy, M.D. “Collaboration among multiple specialists and access to advanced devices like the Impella technologies enable us to treat life-threatening escalation in the sickest patients,” says Dr. Dudiy.
Sam’s organs had been without proper oxygen during his cardiac crisis, resulting in kidney failure. He underwent dialysis treatments to compensate for his kidney failure and filter waste from his body. Medications to bolster his heart’s pumping ability enabled doctors to remove the Impella before Sam was discharged nearly one month after his saga began.
Committed to living a healthier lifestyle, Sam drinks much more water than soda these days and no longer smokes. His kidneys fully recovered, helping him regain his vitality and even hike with his sons at the Grand Canyon. Within a few months, he was also back on the soccer field in an annual parents vs. kids game. “I ran for 30 minutes straight and felt great,” he says.
Sam takes an array of daily medications and has frequent follow-up visits with cardiologist Kanika Mody, M.D., who specializes in heart failure and transplantation cardiology. His heart still pumps with less force than normal, but Dr. Mody is encouraged by how well he’s doing.
“He’s gotten a lot stronger and has a great attitude,” Dr. Mody says. “As long as he follows the plan, he should do really well and won’t need more medications. He’s young, with an active family, and he wants to be part of that. That makes it so fruitful when you see these outcomes.”
