Fasten your diaper straps and prepare for a wild review: Brass Monkey, the paunchy, older-brotherly bar that we all went to once when we had just moved to New York and accidentally thought it was called the Meatpacking Industry, has expanded with a couple new parts. Turns out the new parts are just like the old parts, though, and the main draw — a “rooftop bar” — is more like an industrial fire escape. A 10-foot-by-10-foot-ish square of pale wood, a few tables, stools and barrels. Brass Monkey now has a second floor, which is just like the first, plus a tombstone-sized outdoor area that’s been mistakenly hyped as a reason to go there.-Edith Zimmerman
