A small storefront Asian-bohemian kind of place with poetry scribbled on the wall (in a language you don’t know), Drunken Poet Café might seem a bit flaky and too offbeat for topnotch Asian food. Be reassured; Thai and other Asian delectables are expertly prepared in the small kitchen by the female owner/chef. This is also a good place for vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes. Everything is made to order. The highly sophisticated dishes include Thai crispy duck, lamb shank in tamarind-scented curry, preserved duck eggs, stir-fry creations and tempura dinners. Wonderful sushi. Beer and both hot and cold sake to drink as well as teas.
