MonkeyNuts steakhouse to open second site

Steakhouse and wine bar brand MonkeyNuts is to open a new site in Whetstone, north London, in spring 2015.

The 4,000 sq ft, 100-cover basement and ground floor venue will be the second MonkeyNuts site from Gideon Joffe, son of Giraffe founders Juliette and Russel Joffe. The first location opened in London's Crouch End in 2004.

Its menu will be the same as the Crouch End location, serving a selection of steaks and sauces, hot dogs, burgers, salads, main plates such as chicken Kiev with garlic mash, fajitas, and classic sides such as sweet potato fries and coleslaw.

Desserts will include chocolate brownie and sticky toffee pudding, while the drinks list has options such as root beer, banana milkshake, fruit smoothies, and martinis, plus wine grouped by the categories "cheap", "decent", "good", and "excellent".

Joffe also runs the Chez Bob's restaurants in Belsize Park, and Chooks in Muswell Hill.

The new site acquisition was secured by leisure property agency Shelley Sandzer.

Commenting on the deal, Casey Philips, acquisitions agent at Shelley Sandzer, said: "[Joffe] has a proven track record of performing well in affluent London suburbs. [Whetstone] is already well-populated by a number of highly regarded restaurants and bars. MonkeyNuts steakhouse adds something new to the mix."
