Friend House 2 (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This second location of Friend House is sleeker than the first, with waterfalls in the front windows and a mod color scheme of clementine orange and lime green. And while the restaurant on Third Avenue turns out a more varied Pan-Asian menu, this one narrows in on Thai cooking. The menu is typical of most Thai restaurants, but the dishes themselves are not: There’s less oil, more tasty garnishes and artful presentations all around. Start with the ginger-packed dim sum or the crisp spring rolls with plum sauce and pickled vegetables. The eggplant with basil—a house favorite—is flavored with garlic and chili and served on a lotus leaf, and lemongrass red snapper is complemented by bell peppers. Polish off dinner with creamy mango ice cream.
