Established in 1936, Monkey Bar was returned to its former glory in 2009 by Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter.

The dining room's lush red leather banquettes and dim, attractive lighting have restored the fizzy thrill of dining in a restaurant - both attractive and cozy - and harken back to a bygone era when a gentleman never left the house without a tie and a lady always had a pair of white gloves in her purse.

Monkey Bar's menu boasts American classics alongside seasonal dishes using sustainable and organic products whenever possible.

    Went for lunch. Service is very good. Top notch. But the food was bleh. Soup du jour was very tasty. And was smelling so good but the Chinese chicken salad was kind of gross. Price are a little too high regarding quality of the salad. Will not go again.

    Really solid. Upscale without being pretentious. The seafood had lots of flavor. It couldn’t have been better.
