Fricasseè French Bistro Coming to Montclair

by Melody Kettle

Francophiles rejoice! The space at 6 Park Street, formerly Epernay, adjacent to the famous rooster mural, will soon become Fricasseè!

The new owner of the space, Mark Papera, is no stranger the Montclair dining scene.  Mark originally opened Epernay with his ex-wife, Courtnay Papera, in 2000.

Mark has purchased the space (again) and will be bringing some of his favorite dishes back to Montclair.  According to Papera, "I am beginning renovations and rename/rebrand into a great, classical French Bistro."  Fricassee plans to open in February and will serve dinner Monday-Saturday 5-10pm.
