Decorated with hippy, 1960s-style flower prints on the walls, plus funky black-and-red swirled plastic tables, this tiny, subterranean Thai spot is a good match for its Lower East Side customers. Though the menu displays the full range of soups, pad see ew, panang curry, and the like, these are for the unadventurous. The real innovation is Thai tapas. Dishes that simply rely on fresh ingredients cooked minimally are best, like grilled shrimp with mango salad, a refreshing summer salad featuring juicy shrimp and mango chunks, topped with bracing lime and cilantro. The ingredients that usually give Thai cuisine its kick—Thai basil, lemon grass, nam pla fish sauce—are largely absent. Too bad the chefs are afraid to turn up the heat despite their penchant for frying.Extra
Jeeb's tables seat fewer than 15, though the bar seats a few more and you can watch the chefs work. The enclosed brick backyard seating area more than doubles capacity, but fills up quickly in summer months.
There is a $12 corkage fee.
Chicken popcorn, $5; shrimp roll, $6; grilled shrimp on mango salad, $10
