Monon Food Company

Atmosphere: Intimate dining area indoors with local art on display, but on a beautiful evening it’s all about the deck.

Service: We had such a lovely and adorable and sweet server! The food arrived very quickly, and good thing because I was starving!

Booze: Wine and quite a few micro brews are offered. Menu includes suggested beer pairings, and I ordered the Kentucky Bourbon Ale to match my ribs even though I had no intention of having a drink. Well done, I couldn’t resist once I knew they carried it.

Food:

Crab Cakes | roasted corn salsa & spicy remoulade sauce $ 9.95

Slow Cooked Pork Ribs | seasoned & cooked until the meat falls off the bone, topped with monon BBQ sauce with MoFoCo mashers & choice of side $ 14.49 

Ultimate Mac & Cheese | made from scratch with portabella mushroom, caramelized onion & corn $ 1 up-charge to substitute for mashed potatoes

Mediterranean Salmon | served over rice with kalamata olives, artichoke, basil pesto, red onion & fresh tomato $ 16.95

The food was amazing, seriously. Spicy remoulade with a sweeter corn salsa and an unidentifiable spice in the crispy crab cakes blew me away. The ribs meat literally fell clean off the bone when I picked it up and the sauce was so complementing. I took a huge risk ordering these because you never know what to expect with ribs and it absolutely paid off. The green beans were disappointingly undercooked; I’ve ordered them in the past and they were fantastic so needless to say I was let down. However, the macaroni and cheese was some of the best I’ve ever had. It typically isn’t served as a side in the entree style (with corn, mushrooms and caramelized onions) but our server hooked me up. Wonderful crispy bits of cheese and huge pieces of mushrooms provided an unforgettable mac and cheese experience. Mama ordered the perfectly cooked and seasoned salmon, packed full of Mediterranean flavor that didn’t overpower the fish. I couldn’t decide which dish I liked more.

Kudos: They slow cook their meats in a rotisserie oven, providing tenderness, and cook using olive oil, providing healthiness. A great spot for vegetarians, too! Furry friends are welcome on the large and lovely heated deck. Delivery and catering available.

Overall: At first it seemed pricy, but the quality portions are ample. I desperately need to make a habit of dining here.
