For 10 years, the former Robert Howden & Sons tile factory has been home to Spice Monkey. In 2016, owner Kanitha Matoury launched Howden Market next door, and in summer 2017, she transformed Spice Monkey into Howden Restaurant & Bar, with chef Jesse Branstetter on board. Branstetter, best known as the founding chef at Chop Bar, changed the menu dramatically. It’s even more eclectic, with global influences and the meaty, comforting sandwiches Branstetter has been known for. For now, Branstetter and Matoury don’t seem to be on the same page. Unfortunately for customers, that miscommunication is felt in the dining room. Lunch only on Monday, lunch and dinner Tue.-Fri., dinner only Sat.
