NYC dining just seems incomplete without a seamless, floating cube full of communal tables and video projections on each of the four walls. Well, thankfully Brooklyn pioneer Monkey Town is set to return to town for a couple months this summer. The restaurant/art installation started in an apartment back in the early aughts and then moved to a proper venue on North Third Street in Williamsburg, where it stayed open through 2010.
The 10-year-anniversary of the unique eatery will be celebrated with a two-month pop-up in Chelsea. Tickets are $80 ($45 for the Sunday menu) and there are two seatings a night at the Eyebeam space, which promises to be larger than previous incarnations of the concept. There is some impressive culinary talent attached to the project, with a rotating roster of chefs that includes our 30 Under 30 honoree Max Sussman, formerly of Roberta's. The fun starts on June 13 and runs through August 11, get tickets and info here.
