Chef Ji says she couldn't handle two jobs

Sysco Corp. calls itself a global leader in distributing food to restaurants.

From Chef Ji Cha's Facebook page:
"We are sorry to say, but we are closed! I work for Sysco Foods Metro NY and I cannot handle both. If you need anything let me know. Many hugs to my fans and thank you for your support."
Chef Ji posted that message Feb. 2, 2011.
However, Moon Jar remains open for dinner only, though it is no longer called Chef Ji's Moon Jar and the food is mostly traditional Korean.
Chef Ji held down her day job while managing the Fort Lee restaurant, where she conceived the imaginative Korean-fusion menu and worked in the kitchen. 
In an e-mail, she cited another reason for leaving: She no longer saw eye-to-eye with investors.
She got two stars from Restaurant Reviewer Elisa Ung on Nov. 5, 2010, in The Record of Woodland Park.
Ung recommended Chef Ji's Korean sliders, bacon-wrapped scallops, spicy crispy dumplings, Asian wings and sake miso-marinated sea bass.
