Please note: this business is now closed; nycgo.com keeps record of many old and closed venues. Kin Shop is a contemporary Thai restaurant opened by chef Harold Dieterle and Alicia Nosenzo. The duo chose the name because "kin" is the Thai word for "to eat," and the restaurant is the "kin" to their acclaimed nearby restaurant, Perilla. Kin Shop's menu features both contemporary reinterpretations of traditional Thai dishes and wholly new items inspired by Thai ingredients. Complementing the menu—which is meant to be shared—are Thai-influenced specialty cocktails, a 75-label, spice-friendly international wine list and a globe-spanning selection of beers. The casual but polished setting features comfortable banquettes, a long granite bar and a chef's counter for walk-in dining with a front-row view of the kitchen. Kin Shop is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
