one door closes, another opens.

Too many restaurant closings lately! It's nice to announce good news for once: I heard a couple of weeks ago that Funky Monkey would be opening a second location at Pointe Orlando, and now I have pictures (no interior shots yet, but there will be a separate lounge in addition to all that ou

tdoor seating). Plans are to open in September, but they're not taking reservations yet.

New executive chef Bryce Balluff (as of May) will have his hands full with both locations â?? the new spot seats 150. Best wishes for success, Monkey!
