AZN is an Asian-themed restaurant in the mixed residential-commercial space, Mercato, in Naples, FL. They also have a sister restaurant in Charlotte, NC.
They have a very nice indoor
and outdoor dining area.
My dining companion (DC) and I were there for happy hour which runs daily from 3-6 P.M. They have a number of items on their happy hour menu named "R-AZN" the bar. These are mirrors of what you will find on their Dinner menu.
My dining companion and I selected a number of items to share and sample.
We ordered crispy Asian fish bites which were Panko covered Basa, which is a type of Catfish, served on a bed of greens and a Fish Sauce flavored chili-lime dipping sauce.
We also tried the Vietnamese Spring Rolls. These were filled with chicken and vegetables and were served with a chili-lime and another fish sauce-flavored dipping sauce.
Stir-fried beef and vegetable Lo Mein was brought to the table,
in addition to "Hong Kong" style lettuce wraps. This was a mixture of minced chicken, Water Chestnuts, mushrooms, crispy noodles lettuce and Hoisin Sauce on the side.
My dining companion and I found the dining area very pleasant and a good place to people watch. Additionally, our server was attentive and knowledgeable. Management also made an effort to ask how our meal was. The food, however, was unremarkable and only made good by the happy hour prices. Yes, I would probably come back for happy hour or a beverage but not in a hurry.
That's that for another review on Forks.
