Now open: Muntin

It's a pan-Asian replacing Misso at 1326 Spruce St.

Now open: Muntin


Just goes to show you that when one pan-Asian restaurant closes (e.g. Chew Man Chu), there's another on the way.

Doors opened Monday on Muntin, on the ground floor of Center City One (1326 Spruce St., 215-546-0180). Owners Jian Liu and Frankie Lin have ties to Aikou in Flemington, N.J.

Pretty much the same dark-wood-sedate atmosphere as it was under Misso, which closed in January. (It's certainly not the bright clatter that was Chew Man Chu.)

Menu is here and includes the usual sushi-bar items, tempura/teriyaki, and Thai basil shrimp/beef/chicken, all priced right for pre-theater.

It's open from lunch through late night daily.
