Monk - DOA?

Bill Bock | Feb 19, 2002 08:26 AM

Anyone know what happened to Monk? It's an Algerian restaurant on East Fifth Street between First and Second Avenues (but closer to Second), on the north side of the street. It opened a few years ago as Monk, dished out primo Algerian cuisine up until about six months ago, then for some mysterious reason changed into a raw bar named Rocher. Then, a few months ago, it changed back to Monk and resumed the Algerian thing. Now, it seems closed, and I fear the worst. Anyone know what happened, or got any details? And, if it is closed, what happened to the people running the show, and what'll be there next? Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself.
