Dining as Performance Art, Monkeytown Los Angeles
by Rachel Mason

“That was unbelievable” my friend and I both uttered almost in unison upon leaving Monkeytown – a new dining venture in downtown Los Angeles. To call it a meal would not be fitting. It was an art experience.

Prior to entering the nondescript building on the corner of 21st and Main in downtown LA, a small crowd milled around before being gently ushered into what felt like a dream of a 1970’s living room.

After drinking a magnificent cocktail of made from a potent lime kaffir, we were led into a giant and pristine warehouse with a cube of four 20 foot screens at the center. Dining tables directly below. This dramatic setting was spectacular to behold and gave the experience the feel of having the actual meal of being its own performance.
