Three Monkeys

3153 Morganford Rd. St. Louis, MO 63116 | St. Louis - Tower Grove | 314-772-9800

Location Description:

Though the cheeky name and odd menu items ("Rainforest Salad," anyone?) may lead you to conclude this is a chain restaurant, Three Monkeys is really an honest modern take on the old corner tavern. It's a single, small room with low lights, wood fixtures and, when busy, a haze of cigarette smoke. Wood-fired pizzas and pork ribs are decent bets for a solid meal, and the "sweet-and-spicy" wings, a sauce that brings mild heat without vinegar's pucker, are a fine appetizer or snack. The list of draft and bottle beer includes a few higher-end selections.
