As the name suggests, this cozy neighborhood spot combines East Asian flavors with Parisian café style. Contemporary art for sale, twinkling votives and fresh-cut orchids lend the place a mellow air that balances the menu's intensely sweet and spicy twists on traditional Thai food. All dishes are elegantly and rather miraculously plated in a tiny, cutaway kitchen that both lights the small room and fills it with aromas of basil, chili, and coconut. The shrimp starter, creatively grilled on a rosemary skewer until its garlic marinade becomes caramelized, pops and crackles with sweet mesquite flavor, while the crispy duck salad contrasts the crumbly, candied-bacon texture of the deep fried duck against the cool crunch of salad veggies and glass noodles. Among entrées, a whole red snapper is served swimming in a sea of red coconut curry sauce so thick with basil, red pepper, and tomatoes, it begs to be licked off the square, neo-Asian plates. Jumbo shrimp sautéed with mushrooms and Asian long beans is a slightly more subtle option, and less likely to overpower a glass of wine from the extensive list.


Get beyond the eggs Benedict grind with Q's exotic brunch menu of mango pancakes, basil burgers and salmon salad, served weekends from noon to 3 p.m.
