Fogo - tapas in Montclair

Curlz Jan 13, 2014 02:39 PM

Anyone know anything about who is behind this new place? The sign (which says Portuguese and Spanish Tapas Bar) has been up for a couple of months. It's on Park Street, next to Fricassee, in what once was Mexicali Rose (?).

    Once Mexicali Rose and most recently Muscle Maker Grill. Haven't seen any action. I was wondering if it was the Samba crew from across the street, but haven't been in Samba in some time to ask.

      The person behind Fogo, the new Spanish/Portuguese Tapas restaurant is Pat Turano, chef/owner of Trattoria Rustica. Rustica is an Italian Restaurant on Bloomfield Ave. There's a soft opening now. A grand opening is yet to be announced. In a day or two there will be an article about Fogo with pix of the food that looks great. Check it out.

        Thanks--I figured someone on here would know something! I haven't been to Trattoria Rustica but I've heard good things. It'll be interesting to see what they know about tapas...
