Champagne or Singha?

Thai New Year festival, happens April 13 through 15. Where to ring in the new?


1. Pukk
This newest member of the Peep-Highline family’s menu is entirely vegetarian and features faux chicken, faux duck, and faux salmon.
71 First Avenue, nr. 5th St.; 212-253-2741

2. Sripraphai
The undisputed best Thai restaurant in town recently got a long-overdue makeover.

71-28 Roosevelt Avenue, nr. 72nd St., Jackson Heights; 718-651-4354

4. Kin Khao
Nothing about this venerably cool Soho hangout and its young, politely raucous clientele suggests the spicy, untricky Thai food it serves without fuss.

5. Ma*ya Hurapan Kitchen
Taweewat Hurapan of Rain fame has annexed the Thai restaurant formerly known as Ma*ya and added his signature Pan-Asian spin to a menu that now extends beyond Bangkok.
234 E. 4th St., nr. Ave. B; 646-313-1987

6. Klong
As industrial chic as the current Thai crop and twice as loud, but to its credit, the creative kitchen doesn’t stint on spice (ubiquitous pink peppercorns included).
