ABOUT THELONIOUS MONKFISH:
We're passionate about ethnic flavors & jazz, and so we’ve branded our unique take on sushi & Asian specialties: Thelonious Monkfish. Nothing warms the palate like an explosion of flavor or the heart like a burst of song! Chef Ginger loves to jam on Asian culinary themes! Her menu reflects both gustatory tradition and a sense of play and innovation.
Live jazz, sushi, and our personal interpretation of Japanese, Thai, Chinese + Vietnamese cuisines are the mediums through which we hope to disperse kindness + loving service. Nestled in Central Square between MIT and Harvard University, we serve Cambridge + Boston's hungry students, professors, professionals, tourists + business people. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, Boston's top jazz performers create a cool vibe on our Jazz Baroness Room stage–one of the many ways we aim to enhance your dining experience!
