I always love dining at Monument Lane. The food is amazing, the service is incredibly friendly, and the atmosphere is so comfortable — it feels like an extension of my own home. During this visit I’m happy to introduce two of my favorite foodies, SaraDISH and Blynner, to Chef Steve Dustin’s fresh, seasonal menu. Dishes that I could eat over and over again: salt hake pierogies (these were insanely good — I want more right now), grilled elk striploin (I don’t usually eat lean meat, but this elk was amazing), duck confit (so tender that it fell off the bone), braised grass-fed beef brisket (I’m a sucker for good brisket), and the spaetzle (I housed this side order almost entirely by myself). So great to see Chef Steve and Josh (general manager) — these guys are the best. Many thanks for another fantastic meal!
