The Fat Monk feels sort of like a speakeasy. You enter through a tiny ground-level bar, then walk down a winding staircase to the dining room. And once you get to there, you’re probably going to eat a lot of meat. That’s what they serve here, and they have all kinds. There’s a duck burger, a bratwurst with foie gras, and a pork shank the size of your head. Overall, the food is pretty decent (and the dining room is good for date night), but it isn’t going to change your life. Although if you want to eat some meat on the UWS and you don’t mind spending a little money, this place will do just fine.
