Arun Sampanthavivat’s elegant temple of upscale Thai cuisine continues to cast a mesmerizing spell, offering diners poetically conceived 12-course tasting menus that honor tradition while embracing ingenuity. The set menu can change on a whim. Diners choose from one of three spice levels—mild, traditional, or fiery—and then go wherever Sampanthavivat takes them. Beet-soaked vermicelli noodles in a coconut broth with prawns, a bowl of classic tom kha soup, or turmeric-spiced chicken curry with won tons and egg noodles makes for a colorful, texturally rich culinary journey. Seven-course meal available to early-bird diners on select weekday evenings.
