1069 1st Ave. New York, NY 10022 | East 40s | 212-752-9277

Location Description:

Named after a freewheeling beach resort although situated in the shadow of the Queensboro Bridge, renovated Pattaya is a cut or two above the usual neighborhood budget Thai, with more piquant and complex spicing and a handful of unusual dishes. Foremost is Pattaya duck: roasted, deboned, flattened like chicken tabaka, and deep-fried to perfect crispness. On the side, rendered juices are deployed in a soup&-thick with vegetables and heaped with roasted cashews-that doubles as a dipping sauce. A $7 lunch special served until 4 p.m. includes rice, main dish, and soup.
