GLOUCESTER CITY NJ-For all those who have been waiting for the new steak house family restaurant to open it looks like you'll have to put away those steak knives for a while. For some reason the owners, JK Venture, t/a Tavern on the Edge, 4th Street and Jersey Ave., have decided to put the building up for sale. The asking price $650,000. Construction on the property began in 2008 and was completed in 2011. However the restaurant doors never opened.
