As a teen, Marcus Severs worked the counter at his uncle's seafood place, Cap'n Cats Clam Bar & Tavern in West Deptford. In the last two weeks, since he added a market to his Little Tuna restaurant (141 Kings Highway East, Haddonfield, 856-795-0888), Severs feels like a kid again. The seven-day weeks? "The interaction with customers," said Severs, one of the chattiest guys in the business. "I talk to every customer, whether on their way in or on their way out. " The subway-tiled market, taking over the space that was the gift shop Jamaican Me Crazy (which relocated to Rowan University)

M AYOR NUTTER hobnobbed with the stars on Tuesday night at the Time 100 gala, honoring the hundo people the weekly magazine deemed influential. Beyonce and Jay-Z (who made the list) bailed on the party, so Nutter was clearly the next best thing. I hear the mayor chatted it up with Oprah 's BFF and "This Morning" co-host Gayle King , Padma Lakshmi of "Top Chef," Vice President Joe Biden , White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett , U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice and all-time great actress, activist and Marian Anderson award winner Mia Farrow . The gala didn't make it onto the mayor's itinerary for Tuesday, though, and the only tweet Nutter sent out that day read, "In NYC w/ @joshk & @bobmoul meeting w/ investors & entrepreneurs to promote Philly & #StartupPHL," which got me curious.
