Sad goodbye to Nan

We are so sorry that Nan, the wonderful French/Thai byob at 40th and Chestnut, is now closed.

We knew that the talented owner/chef, Kamol Phutlek, had a stroke last spring. Everyone hoped that he would recover sufficiently to be back at the restaurant, but it didn't happen.
We wish him well.

We had been patrons of Nan for years.
Some of our favorites:
the best cold cucumber soup in the world (we have the recipe, but haven't yet tried it)
my favorite Pad Thai
the wonderful preparation of duck breast
anything with puff pastry, including the fabulous apple dessert

We never had a meal there that was less than excellent - never a complaint of any kind.

Good luck, Kamol and Flo and their family and friends.
You will be missed!

    This is sad. I was only there once but I remember the duck breast as the best ever. I wish Chef well in his recovery.

      I loved Nan's version of Thai cabbage salad.

        Had many dates there when I lived in center city. Recall a puff pastry escargot which I liked a lot.

          Is it possible you to post the cucumber soup recipe?
          Thank you, amitwo
