Not your usual smothered-in-coconut-milk neighborhood Thai place, Mai Thaiku makes fresher, more interesting, and way more delicious Thai food than you might be used to. To heighten the buzz you’ll get from the spicier dishes, the teeny bar, Fu Kun Wu, specializes in tincture-y cocktails that make various promises of vitality (with some aphrodisiac varieties limited to one per person, lest you get too freaky). Chef Anne Sawvalak, from Bangkok, heads up a mostly women-run kitchen cooking family recipes.
