Frunchroom's website and Facebook page bills the new restaurant as both a "Chicago bar and pizzeria" and "Italian fusion diner and bar".
Montrealers will be able to judge the merits of the concept for themselves very soon, apparently, as Frunchroom - a nod to Windy City vernacular for "front room" - put out the call for staff yesterday on both Twitter and Facebook.
The restaurant's address is 1425 René-Lévesque Ouest, between Bishop and Mackay, and the phone number, for now, directs callers to the voice mail of one Mohamad Turkieh. Turkieh is the President of Montreal Restaurant Management Inc., a listed company since 2011, with considerable real estate development and property management experience in the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. His LinkedIn profile also lists him as the CEO and founder of Prompt Holding.
