Award Winning Restaurateurs Opening Neighborhood Cafe in Bergen

Award-winning restaurateurs are set to bring a new food and beverage concept to Bogota at The Atwater, the luxury waterfront rental community located along the banks of the Hackensack River.

Bogota Press, a cafe from local residents and owners Sherry and Eric Solomov, will occupy ground floor retail space at the property. Offering a “modern aesthetic with a retro twist”, the new cafe has been designed to “foster social interaction among patrons” with communal tables, outdoor seating, and a welcoming environment.

The cafe will also pursue civic-minded partnerships with neighborhood organizations to “provide youth employment opportunities” and nurture entrepreneurial skills”. Ownership is preparing to create a scholarship program for well performing local students.


Bogota Press will utilize locally sourced ingredients and partner with local vendors and brands from around the region. The menu will feature breakfast items along with illy coffee, breads from Balthazar, pressed sandwiches, desserts from Pâtisserie Florentine and more.

“Bogota Press is truly about food, community and creating a sense of togetherness,” said Mrs. Solomov, who previously owned the acclaimed Brooklyn Burgers & Beer restaurant in Park Slope, Brooklyn with her husband Eric Solomov. “We’re blending innovative specialty coffees and delicious comfort food with a trendy-but-approachable atmosphere that can be enjoyed here or on the go. We hope to be an anchor for the community, providing a comfortable gathering place that brings back human interaction while also participating with local organizations and supporting our customer base. In short, we’re looking to be an active and contributing member of the community.”

When Bogota Press opens its doors within The Atwater, where over eighty percent of its homes have already been leased, building residents will be able to utilize a custom app to order in advance.

Currently plans are in place to open some time this fall.
