Profile

This venue is closed.

This chicken and jazz parlor boasts a cool lo-fi vibe, a cavernous, group-friendly space, and tasty lineup of Asian-inflected bar food. The centerpiece of the dark, spacious room is a collection of 30,000 vinyl records; you can browse the stacks and pull one for the D.J. to spin. Among the standout plates coming from the glassed-in kitchen is organic, double deep-fried chicken done up in Korean spicy sauce, or a soy-and-garlic number. Audibly crispy and nearly greaseless, the piles of legs and wings are more refined than those at even the uber-popular Bon Chon, but neither the consistency nor the flavor matches Momofuku’s rightfully esteemed version. The rest of the menu presents continent-hopping mix of small items for sharing: fried calamari, Mexican elote, and sushi. A deep-fried soft shell dish, “Holy Crab” is a highlight. While nibbling on a plate of freshly ground mung bean pancakes topped with spicy, tangy kimchi and taking in the sweet notes of “Watermelon Man” by Herbie Hancock, Mono + Mono’s mash-up concept starts to makes sense.
