Mural3_1 Hummers and high-end kitchen renovations aside, scoring a Saturday night reservation at Fascino has become the ultimate trophy for Montclair√¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s serial dining set. If you√¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢ve been left out in the cold, things may be looking up. Fascino√¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s long-awaited expansion has been completed, more than doubling the restaurant√¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s seating capacity. Cozy burgundy banquettes line the elegant addition, but the real star of the space, is the original art by Antonio √¢‚Ǩ≈ìTony√¢‚Ǩ¬ù Loftman. Engaging mural-like canvases grace the walls depicting scenes of Italy from the DePersio√¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s photo album, recreated by Loftman, a waiter at Fascino. Loftman√¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s fresh, neo-realist perspective brings an exciting gallery atmosphere to the new space. Oh, and the food’s really good, too.
