A Brighton restaurant that crashed onto the scene early last year has now closed down, becoming the latest in a string of closures for Cleveland Circle. Jade Monkey has closed for good, according to Boston Restaurant Talk, leaving a note on its Facebook page to share the news with fans.
“It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that Jade Monkey will be closing for business,” the message read. “From the entire Jade Monkey Team, we thank you for your support. It was truly a pleasure to serve all of you!”
Jade Monkey specialized in Asian fusion dishes and opened last February in place of Sa Pa, under the same ownership. With a funky vibe complete with neon lights, Jade Monkey served dishes like ginger scallion noodles, crab rangoon, tuna poke, and ramen, among other items. The departure of Jade Monkey comes after a handful of closures in the neighborhood, including The Real Deal and Boloco, as previously reported.
