Like Highline and SEA, this Thai spot lures diners with slick modern decor, along with reasonably priced traditional dishes. Chef Sunny Sompong, formerly of Planet Thai, uses fresh herbs, minimal oil and no MSG, turning out healthful, innovative, artfully presented dishes. In addition to the usual favorites—spring rolls, basil chicken, red curries—you’ll find succulent duck marinated in Thai herbs and bathed in a piquant tamarind sauce.
