NORTH BERGEN – Owners Lizth Murillo and Angela Marte held a ribbon cutting ceremony for their new Dominican restaurant, El Panorama, on Friday, April 5.
“We hope that just as El Panorama was a piece of the hearts of Dominicans that it will also be a part of your hearts in North Bergen,” said Marte in Spanish.
To help them welcome the new restaurant into town were Mayor Nicholas Sacco, Commissioner Hugo Cabrera, Chief of Police Robert Dowd, and Assemblyman Vincent Prieto.
“I hope you have great success in the town of North Bergen,” said Assemblyman Vincent Prieto.
El Panorama is located at 7700 Tonnelle Ave. and has two parking lots.
Owner Murillo said that although currently the business has 25 employees, they are in need of many more. She also mentioned that eventually the second floor of the restaurant will be open when a liquor license is obtained.
“I’d like to invite everybody to come and taste our food,” said Murillo. “This is a dream come true for us. We want to give you the best of service and offer jobs for the community.”
