Launch Room Cafe

  On Saturday-14-January the "Launch Room Cafe" opening its doors for business. Located at 64 W. Main St. in Bogota it represents the newest dining experience in Bogota.  The team of Ms. Renata Greenwald and Mr. Edward Greenwald took over the space formerly the "Cuban 'round the Corner".  The Greenwald's come to Bogota with well over two decades of experience in both the commercial and retail food trades. Along with both being classically trained chefs they have worked at Balducci's, Dean & Delica, Whole Foods, and the Fish Dock restaurant. 
  Their goals for the Launch Room Cafe is to offer food that is enjoyable, but freshly cook and prepared in full view of the diner. This starts with fresh brewed coffee, some of which will be Itailan imported roast. Continuing with breads from the Balthazar Bakery, imported meats, and homemade soups. One special item on their menu will be made to order crepes. These will range from a breakfast crepe to sweet fruit or a hazelnut cocoa spread. They are also offering a selection of sandwiches, salads and pastries.
  The Greenwald recently moved into Teaneck, NJ and wanting to open their own restaurant close to home to accommodate their growing family. They would discover an opportunity to take-over the Cuban 'round the Corner location. Much of the equipment and decor was included with the purchase. When Mr. Greenwald first saw the interior, it reminded him on a school's lunchroom. Not happy with a possible name of "Lunchroom Cafe" he noticed some of the collectable on the wall. With these, and the nostalgic item of his own, a better name was in this mind. Remembering an old tin rocket ship invoking the televised launches of the 1960's space programs.  This inspired the name chosen become the "Launch Room Cafe" with a logo of a star traveling through space.
   Saturday's open is known as a 'Soft Opening' which allows a business to learn what does and does not work on a day-to-day basis.  More importantly it is a welcome to the residents and customers in come into their cafe. This started with the first opportunity just after a half hour of the doors opening. While the order was small, and chance to meet and talk with local people was a chance to learn about each other.
  In their opening week Launch Room Cafe will have limited hours from 8:00a to 4:00p serving Breakfast and Lunch fare.  Once their Grand-Opening is announced they hope to increase the operating hours and have their full menu available.
 The "Launch Room Cafe is located at 64 W. Main St. Bogota, NJ. Across from the Kennedy Emergency Services Building. Street parking, and the public lot behind the Post Office is available. They can be contacted at 201-347-9276 for ordering, and more information.
