Portage Park's dinner & weekend brunch spot! 


We are a small neighborhood bistro specializing in housemade charcuterie (smoked and cured meats), fresh pastas, handmade pizzas, and seasonal vegetables.  Our cooking is inspired by hand-crafted old world technique using local ingredients. Chef Matt Saccaro has a rich culinary background from both the Jewish & Italian sides of his family and he seamlessly combines these two traditions in our diverse menu. 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 on in and make yourself at home! 


We are also available for catering, private events, dinner parties, etc. with selected and prix fixe menus.

TO MAKE DINNER RESERVATIONS: give us a call during our open hours or leave us a voicemail or email message with your preferred time, number of people, and phone number and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

WE DO NOT TAKE BRUNCH RESERVATIONS: during brunch, we are counter service, so first-come, first-served like at a cafe. that said, food comes out quickly and you won’t be waiting long, if at all, some come on by and don’t be shy! ;)

Please note that ONLY complete parties will be seated, as we are a tiny restaurant that needs to give priority to those fully present.

Thank you for understanding!
