Melmans Nab Frankie Z's

FrankieZs-sm.jpgIn what seems like their goal to takeover River North, the Melmans have reportedly secured the shuttered Frankie Z's spot. The bar, located at 435 N. Clark, closed earlier this year after 30 years in business and even cameoed as the Tumble Inn in Johnny Depp's Public Enemies. No word yet on what theme the place will own, but word is that it'll be run by R.J. and Jerrod Melman, who also operate Paris Club and Hub 51 nearby. [Crain's]
