Farewell to Kitchen Port
When Seajoys Kitchen opened on North Main a year ago, many people saw the name and assumed it was a seafood restaurant. In fact, despite the name and the image of a ship's wheel on the sign, Seajoys was an Indian restaurant owned by Shijoy Kallungal. "Seajoy" was a pun on Kallungal's first name (pronounced "Shee-joy"), and the wheel alluded to his other business, a vacation booking service called Seajoys Cruise Club. The dissonance between what the sign said and what the menu said probably isn't the only reason Seajoys closed its doors without warning late last year, but it certainly didn't help. Repeated phone calls to Kallungal went unanswered, and the Cruise Club's phone is disconnected.
