In the wake of the Iowa flood of 2008, the building at 303 2nd Street, formerly the space of Sluggers, was gutted and vacant for 17 months until the team at Monica's rented it in November 2009 and slowly began the rebuilding process. They also renovated the space into two dining rooms and added an expanded patio. Classic '50s tunes suffuse all of Monica's dining spaces, including its main room.
Both renovated rooms entice diners with the aromas of Italian cuisine and American comfort fare crafted by head chef Rod Bowman and his team. Bowman, who has held court at several eateries throughout the Midwest, serves up such Italian favorites as lasagna, lobster fettuccine, and angel hair pasta with seafood or chicken. Meanwhile, hearty American fare such as beef stroganoff, chicken pot pie, and scalloped potatoes and ham delights patriotic palates even more than the kiss each citizen receives from Benjamin Franklin's ghost on the Fourth of July. A selection of premium salads, such as the champagne fruit salad, as well as a full menu page of sandwiches, served on fresh bread or as paninis, rounds out the offerings, which also include open-flame oven-baked pizzas named for local basketball legends and mac n' cheese.
