A quick Google search of the definition of "grumpy", you find synonyms including crabby, sulky and irritable. However, we are pretty sure you wouldn't have any of those feelings when visiting the new Grumpy Monk at Broadway at the Beach. In fact, during that same google search, we found antonyms for the word Grumpy as good-humored, happy and satisfied and that describes exactly how we felt after we got our fill at the newest restaurant to join the already diverse mix of eateries at Broadway at the Beach!
So here's a few of our happy highlights from our ladies lunch visit to the Monk!
First things first… Apps!
We started with the Southwestern Spring Rolls and the Na-Na Nachos! How were the Spring Rolls, you ask? Well let's just say, they didn't last long as we quickly devoured the blackened chicken, cheddar cheese, bacon and spinach egg rolls that are served with a kicked up chipotle ranch! The Na-Na Nachos? They didn't last long either as our party of five dove right into the fresh tortilla chips layered high with queso, lettuce, jalapenos, pico de gallo, cilantro lime sauce and a choice of chicken or shaved beef. Our topping of choice this go round was chicken!
Now to the main event… our lunch time selections!
From the smothered chicken, chicken philly and Atlantic Flounder, to two different sushi selections, our table was a Hodge podge of unique and delicious creations! Each receiving great reviews between bites! Although we were loading up on the rich flavors of land and sea, we were able to swap our side dishes for salads topped with house made dressings! Trust us, if you're a ranch dressing connoisseur, the Grumpy Monk has got it going on!
As we satisfied our hunger, and turned our pre-lunch "hangry" into a post-Monk "happy", we left already making plans for our next return visit to Broadway's newest lunch, dinner and happy hour destination!
