Sticky Rice Thai Barbecue

Lower East Side
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.
