This great little neighborhood restaurant just moved up a notch on my go to list. The No Smoking ban has made me say "Yes!" to Mona's when girlfriends call instead of "Can't we find some place with no smoking." This is because I love the intimate environment, their wonderful menu and their consistently good cosmopolitans. They have great appetizers that make a perfect meal. I particularly enjoy their unique antipasto, which is more NW than Italian, their tasty spicy chicken empanadas and, my very favorite, mussels cooked in a wonderful broth with crusty bread for dipping. If you haven't been to Mona's in awhile due to the smoke then give it another try.
