The menu changes weekly, if not daily, reflecting the restaurant's commitment to showcasing the local harvest. <br /><br><br><br />Established in 2011 Monument Lane takes its inspiration from the area's pastoral past; a time when Manhattan island was rich with salt marshes and grasslands, pure estuaries teamed with mussels and oysters, and acres of apple and cherry orchards bloomed nearby. In the 1700's and 1800's, New Yorkers came to Greenwich Village as a retreat to the countryside; traveling a road named Monument Lane, now called Greenwich Avenue, where the restaurant presently sits.
