Nick’s No More; Mills 50 Restaurant’s Name a Little Less Funky

Written By Scott Joseph On April 24, 2015

FMI logoThe Funky Monkey Wine Company is no longer trying to be an Italian restaurant and back to serving its original menu of steaks, seafood and sushi. For a while it had incorporated the name of an Italian restaurant that the parent company, FMI Restaurant Group, had operated in the Sanctuary condominium building in downtown Orlando. So it had the rather cumbersome name Funky Monkey Wine Company’s Nick’s Italian Kitchen.

According to co-owner Eddie Nickell, the Nick’s name is no more and the Italian menu has been scrapped. The company also operates a Funky Monkey at Pointe Orlando on International Drive. It’s at that location that it now presents its occasional drag shows. FMI had rebranded another Mills 50 location for that purpose, renaming the Bananas Diner location Divas Dinner Theater. It had also been known for a very short time as Mills Brewpub. Divas lasted an even shorter time period and is now closed.

In fact, according to Nickell, “we are in negotiations to sell the location,” so look for something new there, as well.
