The chosen restaurant of Siasconset's upper crust, The Chanticleer was given a new lease on life in 2006. That's when Jeff Worster and Susan Handy, the duo behind Black-Eyed Susan's, took over and revitalized both the restaurant's physical space and its French menu. The three dining rooms, though still genteel enough to dress up for, now have a lighter-hearted, less formal ambience (families with children and men sans dinner jackets will no longer feel uncomfortable here). The cuisine, too, has expanded beyond its classically French approach, infusing worldly flavors into traditional dishes: sirloin steak is served with yuccas (rather than potatoes) and the lobster, snap pea, and mango salad is flavored with Indian spices. A scaled-down menu is offered at lunch—it's best enjoyed in the garden filled with climbing roses.
