Little Serow, Washington, DC

Johnny Monis is Greek, and so is his flagship restaurant, Komi, where he was named an F&W Best New Chef 2007. His 10-month-old, 28-seat Little Serow is decidedly un-Greek: It’s Thai, serving the spicy food of the Isan region (where he and his wife got married). For $45, Monis sends out seven or so family-style dishes, ranging from just-fried pork rinds with the green chile sauce nam prik num to larb, the sour, chile-spiked chopped-meat salad with vegetables and sticky rice. littleserow.com.
