Mark Bucher grew up in Philadelphia but sought his fortune elsewhere. After developing casual, beef-based restaurants in the Washington area, he and his partners sought to expand to Atlantic City.
Two New Jersey-rooted restaurants have entered the South Jersey scene. Marltonians have a new restaurant in the Turning Point, which opened recently in Marlton Square (300 Route 73 South, Marlton, 856-988-1528). It's an offshoot of a breakfast/brunch/luncher with a base in Long Branch. Owners Pam and Kirk Ruoff are behind a pleasant, plant-dotted dining room. Like all Turning Points, this one closes at 3 p.m. because the Ruoffs believe in a work-life balance.
