Old Monk x Mona's
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
It’s Indian with a twist at Old Monk, a restaurant dedicated to offering modern interpretations of Indian culinary traditions. While you can always order a classic butter chicken or lamb korma entree, you’ll also find creative dishes showcasing Indian elements such as goat cheese naan with pumpkin and melon seeds and okra fries with mango powder. Enjoy a relaxing meal in a casual environment, washing it all down with Kingfisher Indian beer.
Then, move on over to Mona’s, a longstanding Alphabet City institution. While this area is home to tons of bars, none can compare with this spot’s divey charm. Laid-back bartenders serve cheap drinks, which you can take over cozy seats to sip on while you can people watch in a crowd of recent college grads alongside older New Yorkers reminiscing about a city of decades past.
