There is always, always a long line at this bold Thai spot opened by two Per Se alums, but the host will gladly text you when your table's almost ready. The sunken dining room could be mistaken for a Chiang Mai dive bar—dim rattan lamps, boisterous noise levels, and exposed-brick walls covered with kitschy ephemera like vintage monster-movie posters—but the food is no joke. The menu is authentic-ish, and an incredible showcase of Thai flavors: zesty grilled baby octopus just might become your new favorite snack, and the sweetbreads with dried shrimp and tamarind sauce are addictive.
