Coming to Montgomery: Allure

My sources tell me that a new contemporary American restaurant called Allure is opening soon (this week?) in The Marketplace in Montgomery, where Pacific Moon used to be. (Also in the complex - Sukhothai Thai cuisine, Mei Japanese and Go Bananas Comedy Club). We should know more about it soon...

UPDATE! This just in from Polly:

A new restaurant will open soon in the Marketplace of Montgomery. Allure will be a contemporary American restaurant, taking the space that was Pacific Moon. Dr. Chin Cheng, the landlord of the Marketplace, owns the restaurant. His son Marty Cheng will be general manager. The chef is Ron Perez, who has worked at Jeff Ruby restaurants, and most recently at Napa Grille.

Cheng says the space has been completely renovated, staff is being trained and that he hopes to be open by next weekend (June 23). He described the menu as high-end, with steaks, prime rib and contemporary dishes, but with entrée prices kept below $30. Allure will be open for lunch and dinner daily, and will have a lounge that will stay open late. Food will be served until about 10 p.m., the lounge until midnight.

8300 Marketplace Lane, Montgomery. 513-891-0120; www.allurecincinnati.com (there’s nothing much on the website yet.
