The lowdown

When the couple Ann Redding and Matt Danzer opened Uncle Boons in 2013, they gave New York one of its most celebrated Thai restaurants. In 2017, they expanded on the idea with this nearby takeout counter. If you’re familiar with the couple’s particular approach to pan-Thai cooking, you know what to expect here, albeit in a more durable, more utilitarian fashion. The papaya salad is prepackaged, the fried-chicken larb (and a veggie version made with fried mushrooms) loses a bit of crunch in transit, and pad Thai is on offer (updated and upgraded over the version you find at most neighborhood takeout joints). Even if Uncle Boons Sister is not exactly the Thai restaurant of your dreams, it’s nevertheless worth keeping in your delivery-option roster, provided you work or live nearby.
