Luka's, the landmark restaurant in Ridgefield Park, had it grand opening in it's new location in Bogota. After 23 successful years in Ridgefield Park the owner Luka had an opportunity to give his restaurant a significant upgrade, which he could not afford to turn down. With the lease on his former space coming up for renewal Luka was approached by the owner of the strips of restaurants that are located at the turn of River Rd before it goes under the CSX tracks. Luka had always like the site with in lager front windows, a pathway that could have a few tables set outside for some causal "Summer Dinning", and one big feature a parking lot. As part of the agreement the Landlord redecorated the entire space, and upgrading the Kitchen, working with Luka to give him a first class Establishment to serve the patrons from the local area.
An important part of the new location is that is still near the Ridgefield Park community, so close in fact that some of his regular costumers can walk to dinner. And now so can the residents of Bogota can sample his take on Italian cuisine. Along with the parking lot, and access to major highways patrons came in from Long Island, and points West came to join in the Grand Opening.
Luka , along with his son Nick, can now have a larger, or open space to entertain their guest. With larger, more modern space Luka hopes that this will help his son to continue to grow, and build on the foundation that his Father has started. He also is looking forward to growing with his neighbors Boxcar Bagels, and Bogota Chinese Restaurant. Luka sees the trio of eateries as being a good mix of taste in food. He has always been a fan of Boxcar Bagels, and hope that some of those customers will come back for dinner with him. Along with some of his regulars will return in order to have a nosh for breakfast.
The menu is the same as before with Luka himself creating some old , and new specials.
