Thai

Talde

IMG_6894.jpg

Overview:

Talde was opened in 2012 by 3 partners including Top Chef alumni Dale Talde. The decor is tavern-like and casual. There is a small bar in the front and a long narrow dining room with an open kitchen & chefs counter. The menu is modernized Asian food; taking influences from places like Korea, Thailand & Talde's native Philippines. There are time tested staples like their pretzel pork & chive dumplings, kung pao wings with peanuts and Korean fried chicken. You will see dishes you recognize like pad thai and tom kha soup but they are entirely re-imagined and presented beautifully. I've traveled all around the world and this is still one of my all time favorite places.

Fish Cheeks

IMG_6587.jpg

Overview

Fish Cheeks is a great Bond St eatery from two chef-brothers out of Thailand. The space is modern and casual with beautifully vibrant colors all around and tons of natural light coming in from the floor to ceiling window out front. The menu is Thai comfort food served mainly family style and meant for sharing. Dishes are contemporary versions of this fiery cuisine with bright presentations. Small plates here are excellent; try the calamari with tamarind & fish sauce glaze, raw shrimp with bird’s eye chili & mint or the super juicy dark meat fried chicken. There are 12 family style entrees so there is a lot to choose from in the way of whole fish and other seafood swimming in complex sauces. I found myself walking away truly excited for having had this meal and anxious to return.
