Spice Monkey is a yummy little restaurant on Webster (read a brief review here.) Besides the food, of note is the building it's in, the tile-clad Howden building. The space Spice Monkey is in is labeled Robert Howden & Sons.
It's a funky little space, with tile-covered stairs and a fireplace. It looks like it could have been a hotel, but sounds more like a hardware store. Anybody know what it was?
