With a name like Monsoon, a restaurant better make an impression. So when the owners behind some of Long Island’s top restaurants, including Prime, Tellers Restaurant, and Verace, decided to open their first Asian-fusion eatery, they pulled out all the stops to ensure their bold name choice was warranted. Since opening in 2012, Monsoon has made some lasting impressions. The New York Times called it “an exciting new entry in Babylon,” and Newsday gave it a four-star review and named it No. 1 in fine dining for 2012.
The restaurant is housed in a stunning 1920s bank building whose gray stone is floodlit with dramatic lighting outside to match the equally dramatic decor inside. When customers enter, they find an elegant mix of reds and purples, sleek black wall art, and modern, dark wood furniture. The artistry of this contemporary decor is reflected in the menu, which features a blend of Vietnamese, Chinese, and Thai dishes artfully plated and made with bold, colorful ingredients. Executive Chef Michael Wilson, formerly of Verace and Prime, creates dishes ranging from lobster rangoon to miso-glazed black cod to grilled rib eye with shishito peppers. The signature-drink list also flaunts creativity with cocktails such as the green-tea mojito and the Babylon Express, which features Crop cucumber vodka, St-Germain liqueur, pineapple juice, and fresh lime.
