When you dine at Talay, don’t give the cabbie the exact address, unless you want to spark a heated debate about its geographic existence. Instead, direct him to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, then disembark a couple blocks north, where a 1926 West Harlem freight house has been converted into a dining destination that has yet to land on New York’s collective taxi-driving radar. Give it time: Talay, a Thai-Latin duplex with a morphing colored-light scheme and a bottle-service lounge upstairs, is the latest arrival on a slowly emerging restaurant row that Realtors have dubbed Viaduct Valley, or ViVa—home to Dinosaur, Hudson River Cafe, Covo, and the pioneering Fairway. Talay’s kitchen turns out such savory fare as lemongrass-garlic baby back ribs and Szechuan-pepper-crusted New York strip.
