Located in Williamsburg Brooklyn, Monarch Theater Restaurant offers a unique and inspired collection of small- and large-plate Asian dishes, influenced by the cuisine of China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand.
“We wanted to offer food to our Williamsburg neighbors that we wanted for ourselves,” said owners Lawrence and Ayako Elliot. The Elliots are pioneering restauranteurs in Williamsburg with their other restaurant, Rabbithole, still a popular fixture on Bedford Avenue. The Elliots’ vision for Monarch Theater Restaurant was inspired by their favorite dishes from across East Asia, as well as the unique, theatrical history of the building.
Noted Australian chef Richard Kuo, a veteran of WD~50, Corton, Pearl & Ash, among others is the consulting chef. He has been brought on to innovate and help interpret the menu to showcase the stylistic diversity and complexity of Asian cuisine - re-imagining classics such as sweet and sour pork, agedashi tofu and Thai chicken coconut soup in a progressive yet affordable setting.
The cocktail menu and beverage program were equally considered. Bar manager and mixologist, Jason Mezydlo, designed bespoke cocktails using fresh, organic ingredients that complement the depth and flavor profiles of the cuisine. The bar menu is rounded out with a unique selection of organic and bio-dynamic wines, as well as sake and Japanese whiskies.
