THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Knave of Hearts Restaurant Review: The Knave not only survived the ’70s, but seems rooted in it. It has the same mix-and-match decor---tablecloths, china and glassware are all different---that looks like a flea market, but it works. The mood is friendly and romantic, and they have some reasonable wines to augment it. The food, as of yore, has a quirky charm. You can start with a creamy crab bisque, or a sensible vegetarian lentil soup, move on to any of a half dozen salads, or the reliable chicken liver pâté with fruit chutney. Entrées include chicken coco loco---a curried peanut and coconut cream sauce over couscous, blackened catfish or salmon, and Ty’s (the owner) stir-fried vegetables with tofu on couscous. There’s roast duck, pork tenderloin with a pear-currant compote---does it take you back?---plus old-fashioned desserts to match.
