Thelonious Monkfish is a sushi asian fusion restaurant that calls itself Jazz for the Palate! There is actually live jazz on the weekends for dinner, however even without the live music, this place rocks! The decor is both hip and relaxing in an open table atmosphere. The waiters are…oh how shall I put this mildly…they are smokin’ hot – which just adds to the dining pleasure, or pleasures as the case may be.
I got to sample both of the dishes that were ordered today and frankly they were both equally as good. Bill ordered the standard Pad Thai. The noodles were cooked to perfection, soft with a little bite left in them allowing them to hold up well to the abundant amounts of chicken, bean sprouts and crushed peanuts. It was one of the best Pad Thai’s I’ve had since moving to the Northeast.
Stacy, the adventurous one, ordered Noodles Nirvana. This dish was simply out of this world delicious. The egg noodles were also cooked to perfection and were accompanied by a variety of wok-fried vegetables. All this was toss in a shiitake mushroom sauce that was rich without being to heavy and a symphony of tastes for the palate.
The menu is so extensive that you could go back every day for months and still not sample everything that is offered. And did I mention the price? The total bill for both lunches came to under $18.00.
You can’t go wrong with Thelonious Monkfish.
