Sitting humbly across from Aria’s baccarat tables, Lemongrass is a lot more low-key than many of its celebrity-chef-helmed neighbors. The space, designed by James Beard Award-winner AvroKo, is lovely and serene, meant to look like a traditional Thai silk factory and adorned with lush fabrics, dark wooden tables and a wall of creamy green stone.
Chef Krairit Krairavee has designed an authentic yet sophisticated menu, with spices straight from Thailand and pitch-perfect renditions of traditional favorites alongside the best of contemporary Bangkok. Sample classics such as spicy and smooth green curry or fabulous tom kha gai (coconut chicken soup) — or get more adventurous with yam nuea yang, grilled beef salad with grape and mint.
