had a wonderful meal at Monk on 5th just east of 2nd Ave. it's Armenian with French influences. our party ate luscious lamb chops, smokey salmon, mussells and homemade steak fries, and lamb koftes. the host was more than gracious--he accommodated us even though he was hosting a private party later that evening. it's a small and dark place with atmosphere to spare.
