The Red Monkey Downtown Lounge is building up its menu.
The Alder Street lounge opened last October with a menu owner Juston Watson described as "basic comfort food with flair."
Now that the dust has settled, Watson said, the staff has expanded the menu of build-your-own-burgers, paninis, salads and appetizers.
New lunch items include rice bowls, wraps and another 12 burgers and paninis. Steak, pasta and seafood have been added to the dinner menu with a staff favorite of margarita chicken fettuccine with garlic bread. Additional appetizers are baked cheese, chicken satay and shrimp-shrimp.
The Red Monkey's lounge hours are 11 a.m.-2 a.m. daily. The kitchen's open 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
