An exciting addition to Montclair’s culinary scene, Allegory is The MC’s signature restaurant inspired by coastal Mediterranean flavors and ingredients.The restaurant and bar are designed as a casual meeting space and serve as a serene backdrop to the modern American fare. The vision for this restaurant design came from Dash Design, a leading NYC-based interior design and branding agency specializing in hotel, restaurant and retail design.

The key feature of the restaurant and bar is the wood flooring, 9” x 36” Etic Rover Grigio Textured,which is interrupted by porcelain tile inlays that represent worn oriental carpets, Nomad 24” x 24” Papiro. This pairing evokes an eclectic style that is representative of the mix of cultures that is Montclair.
