Pointe-St-Charles is slated to receive its new pizza restaurant Fugazzi by the beginning of November, Roberto Porres of the Barroco restaurant group tells Eater. One of the most anticipated openings of the season, the Barroco group is the source of swanky openings such as the chic French take on American diners Foiegwa and its speakeasy accompaniment Atwater Cocktail Club. True to form, Fugazzi will be following a similar concept, insofar as it will have a speakeasy of its own. The details on that bar, however, are being kept under wraps for now.
What can be said is that Fugazzi will be an establishment with a rustic, laid-back feel. The space — designed by the Gauley Brothers — will feature a dining area of 80 seats and a take-out window for its Neapolitan-style pies. Executive chef of the Barroco group Jérémie Falissard and Barroco chef Marcus Gnosian have been part of the menu planning, but it’s JP Miron (ex-Au Pied du Cochon and Top Chef Canada finalist) who will be heading Fugazzi’s day-to-day kitchen operations. In addition to pizza, the menu will offer vegetable-based plates and fresh pasta made in a “pasta lab”, says Porres.
No exact date has been firmly set in stone, so it’s recommended that Montrealers keep an eye on Fugazzi’s socials (links below) to know when they’ll be able to grab the first few slices.
