There is no doubt, that times have been tough for many of us during the pandemic.

This holds true for business owners in the restaurant industry.  The owners of The Greenhouse Cafe in Ship Bottom, NJ expressed some of the challenges they faced over the last few years after taking ownership of this historic location.

From structural issues to the pandemic, the restaurant faced adversity, which they knew they could overcome.  How?  By looking within, by wanting to create a brand that is true to their culinary expertise.

They made a big announcement that it was time to close one chapter and open a new one with their business.

According to The Greenhouse Cafe Facebook:

We are very excited to announce that we will be opening Rare Company- Seafood and Steakhouse in the spring at our current location. We have been lucky enough to have found a wonderful and talented team who not only encouraged us, but inspired us to finally take a leap and follow our own path. We are very thankful they saw our vision and have the talent to put it on the plate. We could not imagine taking the next step in our journey without them. Our culinary team has collaborated to create a menu that is exceptional. Executive Chef Paul St. Pierre, Sous Chef Danielle Provenzano, and of course our incredible Sous Chef Oscar Bonilla - who has been with
the Greenhouse since 1989, have blended their talents and experience to bring you creative and unique meals that we are sure you will enjoy.
To get ready for their big rebrand, the Greenhouse will close its doors on December 18th with hopes to see you when they reopen in March.
You can follow along on their progress through social media, including their new page for Rare Company - Seafood and Steakhouse.
 'Rare Company' is born.
