Shalom Bombay Teaneck closing

Just received this email this morning:

June 23, 2011


We at Shalom Bombay of Teaneck would like to take the opportunity to thank the many loyal patrons in Bergen County and its surrounding areas. It has been our pleasure to serve you for the last 2 1/2 years. The enthusiasm about our first location has also led to the great success of our second location, <http://www.shalombombay.com/indexNYC.... almost 1 year ago in Manhattan.

At this time, we have chosen to accept a buyout offer. The former proprietor of our location expressed an interest in reacquiring it and we felt that it was the most prudent path for us to take. He will be operating the Teaneck restaurant under a different name, not associated with Shalom Bombay or the RCBC.

We will now have the opportunity to focus on the Manhattan location and help it on its continued path of growth and popularity. We will also be focusing our efforts on expanding our catering business (weddings, Kiddushes, dinner events, Bar-Mitzvahs) with our unique but versatile cuisine options.

The people of North Jersey are quite discerning foodies with an array of local Kosher options. Shalom Bombay Manhattan will still be that appealing destination for special times spent in the city as well as for the many professionals who work and do business in Manhattan and like to enjoy mouthwatering Indian food for a great value lunch.

Any outstanding coupons and gift certificates will be honored at the Manhattan location. The last day of operations as Shalom Bombay of Teaneck will be Sunday, June 26, 2011.

We look forward to continuing to serve you and cater to all your needs.

Alan Cohnen, Debbie Siegler 
Shalom Bombay Teaneck

    Sad to hear.

    "He will be operating the Teaneck restaurant under a different name, not associated with Shalom Bombay or the RCBC."

    I hope this implies that it will still be Kosher Indian meat cuisine. If you have any info supporting this, I'd love to hear!

      That wasn't the impression I got. The Indian partners in this that also ran an unkosher restaurant about a mile away and I believe they will reopen the treif restaurant the Shalom Bombay space.

        "the pr release said they will not be associated with RCBC-the RCBC is generally the only certifying agency in teaneck (OU certifying IMA seems to be an exception)

          Thanks. I'm not fully familiar with Teaneck's certifying authorities - thanks for the clarification. Bummer.

            I was there last week and was told that they would be closing and would no longer be kosher.
