Montclair Social Club recently debuted in the heart of the suburban New Jersey community's downtown. The team behind the effort transformed a longtime eyesore along a main roadway into a 7,000-square-foot, 120-seat restaurant, 22-seat cocktail bar with live-entertainment stage. Expansion plans include additional 7,000-square-feet of turn-key dining, experiential and event space.
Founder & CEO Jason Miller, a business and finance attorney/executive-turned-hospitality-entrepreneur, is realizing a dream with this project.
Designed by Executive Chef/Partner Michael Merida, the menu features "Global American" touches reflecting his previous experiences with restaurants across the world, from The Fat Duck + El Bulli to Nihonryori RyuGin.
In this MRM News video, Miller and Merida explain the elements that make the social club a new downtown hotspot.
