Kittichai

60 Thompson St.
New York , NY , United States http://www.kittichairestaurant.com/
(212) 219-2000

Sitting down in the ultra-swank Kittichai on the ground floor of 60 Thompson Hotel in SoHo, you might get the impression that the restaurant itself is flirting with you. With the low, colored lighting, dark wood, jewel-toned Thai silks, exotic goldfish, and orchid-filled reflecting pool, the dining area seduces, making Kittichai ideal for a romantic outing. If that doesn’t work, just sink your teeth into such Thai-inspired dishes as crispy rock shrimp in palm sugar-tamarind sauce, green papaya and mango salad with chili cashew dressing, or coconut-braised short ribs. 

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Chefs Mathieu Cloutier of <strong>Hatley Inn</strong> and Jean Phillipe St. Denis of <strong>Leméac</strong> have transformed a tiny former kebab shop into a showcase for comfort-food dishes that highlight outstanding ingredients. (Terrific produce is right next door at Jean-Talon Market.)

We loved: Cocotte (casserole) of roasted root vegetables with lardons.
