Best Newfangled Thai (2011)

Kin Shop

You'll encounter many spicy mouthfuls at Harold Dieterle's modern Thai restaurant Kin Shop. One of our favorites, though, is the duck laab, which the Top Chef winner makes by cooking ground duck leg and breast meat with chiles, lemongrass, and fish sauce, before tossing the whole shebang with chopped long beans and fresh basil, mint and cilantro, sprinkling the bounty with toasted rice powder and pickled red onions. Keep the flames burning with other winning dishes, like snapper in green curry sauce, or, if you can't handle the fire, the sumptuous squid ink soup. 469 Sixth Avenue, 212-675-4295,
