Owner Jamme Chantler believes that great food and jazz are characterized by spontaneity and joy. Nothing warms the palate like an explosion of flavor or the heart like a burst of song! He and Chef/Owner Chudapa Phomjun are passionate about jazz and ethnic flavors, and that's why they've branded their unique take on sushi and Asian specialties: Thelonious Monkfish. "We love to jam on Asian culinary themes. Our menu reflects both our respect for gustatory tradition and our sense of play and innovation.

The trouble, though, he quips, "with running a jazz-themed sushi bar is that our fish is so fresh, it blows its own horn!"

The interior features reclaimed old-growth oak, old barn board, plush brown leather chairs, waterfall slate mosaics, sconces reminiscent of puffer fish and a section with tatami mats for traditional Japanese seating.

"From the excellent service to the fantastic flavors, this eclectic Asian eatery got it right. And all at an affordable price. Whether you're a longtime sushi lover, or brand new to the dish altogether, Thelonious Monkfish can open your eyes and ears to a new dining experience." - Weekly Dig
