In Thai, pinto means “lunch box.” The name is slightly misleading here, since dishes take plenty of (successful) liberties with homey Thai food. Shrimp dumplings come nestled in truffle-infused soy sauce, and charred jalapeños accent crispy roasted pork butt. The crab-fried rice, served in a young coconut and replete with chunks of sweet shellfish, is particularly delicious, and Massaman curry comes with perfectly cooked chunks of lamb. There are minuscule misses, however: Tom yam goong soup gets a dose of whole milk here and could be hotter; there’s little sign of spice in a jalapeño-infused tartar sauce paired with deep-fried fungi called Mushroom Crunch. Owing to limited space, Pinto owes most of its business to local deliveries, but the sleek décor—with muted gray walls and bamboolike paneling—works as a bargain-date atmosphere, even if exotic cocktails are slightly watery.
