Asian-cuisine purists might raise their eyebrows at dishes such as Peking duck flautas or Asian ratatouille strudel, but Chant's Asian-inspired global cuisine has plenty of fans. Those who crave familiar Thai takeout can order the pleasantly chewy wide-egg noodle pad se-eu while non-meat eaters appreciate the broad selection available (several dishes, even the pad Thai, can be prepared vegan). There's even a kids' menu. A full bar, with cocktails, wine, and several
bottled Asian beers, distinguishes this pan-Asian eatery from restaurants with similar menus, making it a hangout on weekend nights and at Sunday brunch when live music draws a crowd ready to groove.
