Kings Cuisine was launched by Jontee Ruffin and his family at 5252 N. Dixie Drive, in space that previously housed Pat’s Kitchen. The previous tenant’s signage still hangs above the restaurant’s entrance, but new “Kings Cuisine” signage has been ordered and will be installed in the coming days, Ruffin said.
