Because this restaurant made practically every Best New Restaurant list in 2019, and now is the time to go if you haven’t been. Nari is the modern Thai follow-up to Pim Techamuanvivit’s Michelin-starred Kin Khao. Though newer, Nari feels like the older sibling — a bit more grown up and confident. Order a few things from each section of the menu, and you’ll taste layers of flavors in ways you never knew possible. The crispy eggplant curry is not to be missed, nor are desserts from talented pastry chef Sean Ehland.
