Good news for Mexican food lovers! We’ve learned that Adam Rose, Executive chef at Nico Kitchen & Bar at NJPAC, co-owned by Fascino owner Chef Ryan DePersio, will be opening his own restaurant in Montclair. A BYO authentic Mexican restaurant called Villalobos will open in the former Quick Stop space at 6 South Fullerton Avenue.
Currently under construction, we’ll update when we learn an opening date.
Before Nico Kitchen & Bar, Rose trained in many restaurants, including Pig & Prince chef Michael Carrino’s former Montclair spot Restaurant Passionné.
