Manhattan, NY 10009
Chef Taweewat Hurapan (Rain and Rain East) is cooking up mouthwatering dishes from his native Thailand. In the tiny, meandering two-story space, diners shimmy into little nooks to savor subtly sweet mounds of coconut sticky rice, ungreasy platefuls of sautéed Japanese eggplant, and--best of all--crisp, whole deep-fried fish that collapses into a pool of rich, garlicky sauce. It"s a whole lot of flavor for your buck, with a reasonably priced wine list to match.
