Lovely Day
Cash-strapped twentysomethings (and their admirers) pack this inexpensive Nolita eatery to gossip and dine on Thai-inspired curries and noodle dishes. Everything is laid-back here—the decor features simple red booths and floral wallpaper, and the service is amiably slow. If you’re looking for a little heat, try the ginger-fried chicken topped with spicy aioli. For some sweetness, consider the crispy banana rolls served with vanilla ice cream, honey and sesame.

Ginger fried chicken is so amazing from Lovely Day. Pad Thai with chicken is also really good. Even the green beans and broccoli. The green/house salad is amazeeeee! The setting is quaint and cute and feels very cozy / old school. The salmon is delicious and cooked exceptionally well. I really recommend every item on this menu. There is nothing that I've had and did not enjoy.  I've eaten at Lovely Day at least 35 times, many of them take out. And the food is still delicious, even as takeout and even after all of those times! Highly recommend for Thai food! They only accept cash or Amex so keep that in mind when you go or order!

This unassuming and cozy eatery packs a punch--just like its cocktails (get the Thai basil/vodka lemonade concoction)! It may seem sweet but it'll hit you hard if you're not careful. Fill up on comforting thai dishes like the amazing pad thai or the salmon over green curry. This budget-friendly spot's laid-back attitude and inviting red leather booths will keep you coming back. We hear brunch is also fab!
