Profile

While this trendy corner spot may prepare Southeast Asian cuisine to go, locals know the best place to sample a dish is seated inside the lamp-lit, open-air dining room or at one of the surrounding sidewalk tables. With a prime view of Sixth Avenue, you can perfect the art of people-watching over vermicelli-packed summer rolls or a chili-and-lime-splashed shrimp and papaya salad. Fresh flavor combinations abound: A spicy squid entrée successfully pairs pineapple chunks with tomato slices in a tangy Thai basil sauce; tiger prawns gently curl out of their shells into a peppery broth of scallions and caramelized onion strands. Crave more sugar than spice? The Vietnamese iced coffee sweetened with condensed milk is an ideal summer-evening cooldown.
