Mona Lisa Restaurant and LoungeElmwood Park
Half nightclub, half restaurant, the Mona Lisa is an eclectic establishment that appeals to families as well as funseekers. The large restaurant seats 70 or more, and serves up homestyle Italian favorites. New to the menu are some Bulgarian selections as well, which have been added to satisfy the growing Bulgarian community in the area. The lounge, which is large enough for another 70 to 100 people, has a colorfully lit dance floor, pool table, darts and a long bar with plenty of seating. Cocktail tables also surround the dance floor. On Saturday, the Mona Lisa features circle dancing and belly dancing in the lounge, making it easy to work off a hearty meal.
