Contrary to what the name implies, the menu at this BYOB eatery from Diane Wongprasert (Pad Thai) offers curries, barbecue, soups and salads—with rice mostly as a side dish. Though the mismatched decor falters (red leather booths sit under an exposed-brick ceiling, while the mod bar area is pure early-’90s minimalist), the food succeeds. Firecrackers—shredded chicken, curry paste and basil wrapped in tofu skin—stand out as a starter, while vegetarian options like a grilled satay of portobello mushroom and tofu are refreshingly diverse.
