The Sizzling Monkey is more fun than a barrel of…well, monkeys

Behind the name: Ashley Mouton had a love for monkeys growing up as a kid. She decided that if she would ever open a restaurant/lounge the name would include monkey.

Concept: The steakhouse and event venue revels in the world of creativity. The savory food and exceptional drink menus are filled with fun and unique offerings that instantly make your mouth water. Don’t miss the hot stone show where your steak is cooked at your table.

Restaurant Slogan: Does Your Monkey Sizzle?

Menu Favorite: Mr. Winston, a brunch specialty so good that it will linger in your thoughts for days afterward.

337 Inside Scoop: So much is in the works for this hot, new establishment! One secret they let us reveal is that there are plans for Cuban-inspired dishes to grace the menu.

Romantic Table: Downtown Lafayette (116 E. Vermilion Street) is a great place for a date. Call to reserve the back corner of the restaurant. It’s a bit quieter with great ambiance and a view of the shenanigans.

Brunch: Get ready for Cajun Creole dishes and live music. Both will make your heart sing!

When delectable boudin patties and perfectly poached eggs are set atop French bread and then dressed in housemade hollandaise sauce, bacon and scallions, you give it a name. Meet Mr. Winston.
