Wooden Monkey to move


The Wooden Monkey is moving. The familiar Argyle location (1685 Argyle) will colse up for good Feb 18, explains co-owner Christine Bower. "We'll invite all our regulars in that night, and when everyone is done their meal, we'll have them carry their chairs out the door and up the hill," to a new, expanded Monkey in the old Beacon Securities Building (1707 Grafton). "They have to carry something. A lamp, a fork, something," she jokes.

The new site provides two storeys for diners, with the kitchen in the basement. Moreover, expect live music and a somewhat expanded menu.

"It's the same, but better," says Bower.
