More About

The Asian Art Museum's pale wood Cafe Asia has an especially nice terrace and an interesting Pan-Asian menu; my father and I chose Tibetan lamb and lentil stew, nicely served on basmati rice with freshly cooked green beans and a triangle of naan, and salt-and-pepper-fried chicken with egg noodles, baby bok choy, and tempura-fried squash and eggplant. We agreed that our main courses were both timidly spiced, but the stew was satisfying, and all our vegetables were crisp and carefully prepared. Strawberry tapioca and a steamed Japanese cheesecake made charming light desserts. I'd had yet another artful meal in arty surroundings.
