The Brass Monkey is an artful fusion of refined brasserie dishes and ‘70s American comfort food, deliciously enhanced. Executive Chef Ryan Wombacher seamlessly pairs traditional brasserie dishes like Veggie Cassoulet, Steak Frites and Roasted Amish Chicken alongside lighter, fun fare. A special “Hits of the ‘70s” menu focuses on ‘70s-inspired comfort food items. Swedish Meatballs and Bologna Sliders are given a contemporary twist, while bringing to mind the feeling of being served from your aunt’s kitchen. Pork Chops & Apple Sauce, French Bread Pizzas and a TV Dinner are featured items. Cocktails are also ‘70s-inspired, including a classic Harvey Wallbanger, Singapore Swing and vodka “Tang”. Pineapple Upside Down Cake, S’Mores and Jello are dessert highlights.<br />The menu is complemented by authentic ‘70s décor elements, including a vinyl room featuring favorites of the ‘70s and some surprise B-sides for your listening pleasure.<br />

"How can you not love a tv dinner, with mashed potatoes and salisberry steak, chocolate fondue, or a modern interpretation of fish sticks? THe concept is great, the food is excellent and the service is outstanding. Great for date night, or any night. Craft beer list is excellent. Great cocktails. Looking forward to my next meal at the BM."

"The food selections were varied and well presented. Service was attentive, without being annoying. Onion soup is a must, although the soup of the day was very good. Prices are very reasonable. A strong recommendation is you are in the area."

"Food is outstanding. The waitstaff is very friendly. However, at lunch there shouldn't be a 20 minute wait between the service of main courses between 2 persons at the same table. At a minimum, an explination would have been in order."
