Andy Aroonrasameruang left his longtime perch at TAC Quick Thai Kitchen to open this, Andy Thai Kitchen. It is, without a doubt, one of the best Thai restaurants in the city. Aroonrasameruang crafts his own funky pork-and-rice sausages, spoons his spicy, eggplant-studded green curry over omelettes, turns out a silky tom kha soup, pairs Chinese broccoli with crispy bites of fried pork belly and throws together a simultaneously fiery-and-cool blue crab salad. This is what Thai food should taste like.
