Opened in 2010 by U.S. Marine Captain Ben Lubin, a certified sommelier and graduate of the French Culinary Institute, The Blind Monk offers a streamlined dinner menu, charcuterie boards, wine by the bottle or by the glass, and craft beer. The dinner menu features choices like Chicken Liver Pate with fig jam and toast points, Yucca Gnocchi with serrano chile brown butter, and Turkey Ricotta Meatballs with red sauce and Parmigiano Reggiano.

For dessert: Torta Caprese with toasted almonds, extra virgin olive oil, and sea salt, or Semifreddo with caramelized nuts and dark chocolate.

All this comes, of course, in addition to The Blind Monk’s large selection of wines and craft beers.

What Now reached out to General Manager Lauren Samson on Wednesday. Samson was not available for comment. It is unknown what changes the Blind Monk’s food and drink offerings might undergo with the transition to the soon-to-open AKA West Palm Beach.
