    Jon Bon Jovi's ``pay-what-you-can'' charity restaurant in New Jersey is open for business.

    The rocker says Soul Kitchen is designed to help the hungry without the stigma of a soup kitchen. There are no prices on the menu. Diners pay whatever they're able to. Those without money can still eat provided they're willing to work in the restaurant or perform some community service.

    Bon Jovi tells The Associated Press he's heavily involved in the operation, including rolling up his sleeves behind the scenes to wash dishes. But Bon Jovi says ``he can't cook a lick.''

    The restaurant operates out of a former auto body shop near the Red Bank train station. The rocker's charitable foundation is subsidizing it.
