3 Monkeys Cantina closes on South Broadway

Four years ago,

Alex Waters opened Bistro One

with a lot of promises and Olav Peterson in the kitchen. But

Peterson left two years

ago to open his own restaurant,


, and this spring Waters finally

closed Bistro One

. Then he quickly

resurrected the space

in May as

3 Monkeys Cantina

-- a casual joint with neon beer signs, a pool table, a jukebox, video games and a compact menu featuring Tex-Mex staples.

But after four months, it seems that Waters has given up on that concept as well.

The phone number for 3 Monkeys has been disconnected, and the space has been dark for a week.

Although there's no note on the building indicating its status, there's no monkey business in sight.
