Restaurant Details

Hyde Park's food scene is notable for two things—its overwhelming mediocrity and its glut of Thai food. So Chant, another slightly above-average Thai joint, will probably seem more disappointing to locals than to visitors. Avocado rolls, a vegetarian substitute for sushi, were bland and small even for an appetizer. Otherwise vegetables seem to be a strength here, with entree options including spinach tofu, Asian ratatouille strudel, sesame polenta with mushroom-asparagus ragout, and the Drunken Angel, stir-fried vegetables served with angel-hair pasta and Thai basil-jalapeño oil. Right now Chant is best appreciated for the elements that distinguish it from Hyde Park's other Thai restaurants: its bright, contemporary atmosphere, a relief from the typical shopworn Hyde Park establishment; its late hours; and its bar.
