We're passionate about ethnic flavors & jazz, and so we had branded our unique take on sushi & Asian specialties: Thelonious Monkfish. Recently, though, we've changed our name to The Mad Monkfish out of respect for the Monk Estate. 

Nothing warms the palate like an explosion of flavor or the heart like a burst of the song! Chef Ginger loves to jam on Asian culinary themes! Her menu reflects both gustatory tradition and a sense of play and innovation.

Live jazz, sushi, and our personal interpretation of Japanese, Thai, Chinese + Vietnamese cuisines are the mediums through which we aim to disperse kindness + loving service.

Nestled in Central Square between MIT and Harvard University, we serve Cambridge + Boston's hungry students, professors, professionals, tourists + business people. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, Boston's top jazz performers create a cool vibe on our Jazz Baroness Room stage–one of the many ways we aim to enhance your dining experience! (02139)
