At first it seems like the most impressive thing about Monnie Burke’s is the great back patio that just keeps on going, like a hallway to nowhere. But this place also has some very good food. The well-rounded menu runs the gamut from burrata to a burger, and includes a pork shank that’s really fantastic. The interior feels a little like a chain restaurant (i.e. very large and a little generic/Houlihan’s-esque), but is perfect for a last-minute group dinner in the neighborhood.
