A Bangkok native responsible for the high-design Manhattan chain Spice brought this modern Thai spot to Roosevelt Avenue. Rice Avenue’s slick decor (kitty-grass centerpieces, glowing lightboxes) draws a stylish, young clientele attracted by cheap-eats prices and a selection of blazingly hot food, such as green-curry fried rice. Mix and match sauces and noodles —choose from combos like ginger-scallion-mushroom or spicy eggplant-basil. Creamy, sweet Thai iced tea makes for perfect preparty fuel.
