Krasna Vojkovich StoryCorps Interview

On 19 March 2010, Jeffrey Schwartz, BCC's Executive Director, sat down with Krasna Vojkovich, owner of the Broad Street restaurant institution Crescent City Steaks, for a StoryCorps interview. Krasna’s enthralling stories ranged from her life in the former Yugoslavia after World War II, her marriage to Johnny Vojkovich, and their founding of Crescent City Steaks in 1934, to owning and operating an iconic business, Ruth Fertel and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, and raising a family on N Broad Street through the 20th Century. I hope you enjoy listening to Krasna’s life story as much as I had recording it with her!
