Uncle Boons, New York

The only Thai to go to when in New York

The only Thai to go to when in New York

Nick Garston

When in New York with a vast selection of restaurants on your doorstep you could spend forever deciding where to eat. It’s a cold windy evening and I fancy something which is going to warm me up, so we decide to head to Uncle Boons a Thai restaurant on Spring Street.
Now this is a restaurant which isn’t showy, or being constantly promoted but is considered by some as one of the great dining experiences of NYC. Owned by married chefs Ann Redding and Matt Danzer, the restaurant was built on the belief of cooking, consistently and well, only making the food they like to eat, from all parts of Thailand. The décor feels like a subterranean 1970’ cocktail den, with dark wood being the main material for the furniture, floor and ceiling, with vintage Thai movie posters as the main artwork.
The menu is affordable and extensive offering electrically charged Thai fare to clientele that ranges from adventurous hospitality types to resident regulars. It’s a place that’s as suited for a fun date night as it is for dinner with friends. This may not be somewhere you have heard of before but somewhere you need to go if in town!
