The long wait for presidential taco creators Rene Ortiz and Laura Sawicki's new cafe Launderette may soon be over. According to a Poached listing, the restaurant is hiring all front of house staff, including servers, servers' assistants, bartenders and more. The listing indicates the restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner and will have a particular focus on service:

Launderette is a full-service restaurant offering a variety of seasonal and classic foods in a stylish yet comfortable setting on the East side. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, Launderette is about real food and friendly conversation. The service feels easy and casual but incorporates fine dining details in order to ensure a seamless guest experience. Candidates must possess a strong ability to interact with guests and the desire to deliver the highest standards of hospitality.

Launderette takes over a former laundromat at 2115 Holly St., and represents the first stage of a food-centric transformation of the property by the restaurant group Sawicki and Ortiz formed with Fresa's co-founders Margaret Vera and Tracy Overath. The adjacent convenience store is slated to become a grocery and a Szechuan take-out restaurant called Angry Bear. The  busy budding restaurant group also plans to expand their fancy chicken al carbon concept Fresa's to other locations.
