The owners of Brooklyn's Rice Thai Kitchen and EM Thai Kitchen are hoping their first Manhattan restaurant will be as successful as their first two ventures. Perhaps they were hoping for a little divine intervention; the restaurant's name and vibe point to a serious Buddhist influence. Elaborate bronze carvings, flickering tea lights and a Buddha statue create a reverent atmosphere for dinner, where a mix of traditional and more exotic Thai fare is served. Crunchy duck with a pumpkin peanut sauce, whitefish covered with mango salsa salad and baked ribs coated in Thai honey are just a few of the entrees you probably won't find at your corner Thai joint. All of the usual noodle, rice and curry dishes are there as well, as is a lunch special which features an appetizer and a main dish for $7. Sadly, booze isn¹t on the menu, so you¹ll have to opt for one of the many teas instead.—Keith Wagstaff
