Description: In the hinterlands of Leschi, the lounge and restaurant Sabai Thai rests amid a landscape of impossible wealth. Just outside, a moorage is crammed with fat white boats, and exquisite houses cover the hills. Picking your favorite will make you happy and sad at the same time.

What's inside: The decor is simple but fancy, and the dining area distantly resembles a yoga studio—it's spacious and calming, with clean wood and wholesome bright lights. The crowd stays quiet, which is pleasant enough, but should you prefer a feistier companion, you'll have to provide your own. (Hint: If you take that guy Dave, ask him about that time in high school when he ate a few handfuls of nutmeg because he was bored and wanted to get high. Nothing ended up happening, but it's still a funny story.)

Worth noting: Monsoon's former sous chef Robert Ong mans the kitchen.

Happy hours: Daily 4–7 pm.
