“Kittichai”

gplants—Japanese, Thai apple and gooseberry—in a pea-green colored curry. If you’re a fan of cashew chicken (that was my favorite as a kid), the wok-fried chicken with roasted cashew sauce is for you ($18). We also devoured the roasted red curry with Thai vegetables ($14). This is a must have. If you have more than four people at your table, order a couple and one to go.

For sides, I would skip the pineapple fried rice with sweet sausage. It is served in a whole pineapple, which makes for a great presentation, but it is gummy from over-steaming inside the fruit and tastes like it was steeped in Del Monte. Instead, I would go for the Thai duck egg omelette with sriracha sauce ($7)—a perfectly cooked, loose crepe-like omelette with a tearjerker hot sauce that screams hangover cure. (Not that I have ever had a hangover and needed really hot food to cure it.)

Ah, but speaking of a hangover, the cocktail menu is in the capable hands of Albert Trummer, so I recommend that you arrive fashionably early for your reservation so that you can lounge, and linger out in the white-washed lounge, while being waited on by impossibly thin, absolutely magnificent women, and sipping his tart lemongrass martini (made from fresh pressed lemongrass and ginger), or the watermelon cooler, or really just about any one of his fresh-juiced concoctions. These make for a night of bliss, though the next morning may be just shy of hell. But really, who really think about the next morning the night before?

Kittichai is located at 60 Thompson Street, 212-219-2000.
