New restaurant in englewood in Sol & Sol location

Called Le Pant or might be Le Dant. They use that Old English type and I can't quite discern whether P, D or something else. Recently opened. Has been busy everytime I have passed by. It appears to be another mid east/med restaurant (just what Englewood needs). Has anyone been? If so, please report. I think I'm hesitant to try it, as Bennie's, Nisi and Rose's all serve this kind of food so well already. (as well as Hummus Elite which I have never had the pleasure)

    Its Vent as in Le Vent, yes horrible font. Its in the same middle eastern vein as Bennies, Rose's and Samdan - not really greekish. Ate their twice so far. Its better than Bennie's and Roses and will put a crimp in their businesses fur sure. Hair more expensive I think but better quality and nicer presentation and nicer room. Service really tries to please, met the owner who was lovely. Order the combo app plate and all were yum and very fresh, maybe portions a little small.
    Any other opinions?

      We haven't been yet, but did pick up a menu. They are including some Persian dishes in their lineup, which is where my focus will be when we get around to going. It did look promising, though pricey. Glad to see the quality is up there.

        Better than Bennie's ?? must check it out as Bennie's is great imho. havent gotten over to Rose's (englewood or fair lawn). weve been on a little middle-eastern kick lately so we will add this place on the list to go to. still want to get over to Toro's in new milford too.
