This former lumber store was transformed into an elegant bi-level Thai restaurant through the addition of accents like soaring ceilings and a giant Buddha hologram. The sleek dining room is wrapped in dark wood and back-lit frosted glass panels. The northern Thai cuisine here rises admirably above the neighborhood’s typical takeout grub. Chef Peter Pitakwong and crew (of Peep and Highline) deftly apply novel touches to traditional fare, particularly in the petite plates, like mussels with a tangle of white-pepper sprouts resting on pillows of rice batter. The main dishes manage to be both hefty and refined: Juicy hunks of hanger steak arrive on a banana leaf sprinkled with white curlicues of grilled leeks; salt-baked chicken is sweetened with strips of mango; and braised ribs and roasted shallots, studded with watermelon cubes, bubble in a copper bowl.
