Few restaurants have a chef who doubles as the sommelier, but that’s the case at Chada, where former Lotus of Siam somm Bank Atcharawan has created a menu of bright, authentic Thai food with a wine list to match. It’s impossible to go wrong at Chada. Foodies swear by the lo-ba, lightly fried pig’s ear, tongue and heart, but those squeamish about the squishy bits can dig into dishes like fried Cornish game hen, drunken noodles with lobster tail, and grilled whole tilapia stuffed with lemongrass and Thai basil. Whatever you order, let Atcharawan point the way to the perfect wine pairing.
