Portage Park's lunch & weekend brunch spot! 


Chef Matt Saccaro has a rich culinary background from both the Jewish & Italian sides of his family. He combines these two traditions in our diverse menu.

We are a small neighborhood cafe specializing in housemade charcuterie, smoked meats and fish, fresh pastas, and seasonal vegetables.  Our cooking is inspired by hand-crafted old world technique using local ingredients.  We are committed to providing the best possible experience to our community and look forward to serving you!

In case you're wondering: the term "frunchroom" is classic Chicago slang for "front room", the living room of a house (especially the bungalow) used to welcome and entertain guests, hang out, share food, drink wine, etc. We are BYOB so come in and make yourself at home! 


We are also available for catering, private events, dinner parties, etc. with selected and prix fixe menus. Email Chef Matt Saccaro at with your ideas!
