Wan Wan is One More Thai Spot You Shouldn’t Miss in Nolita

Wan Wan is a throwback to Old Phuket-style restaurants where local Thai and immigrant Chinese cooking converge. The outcome is something familiar yet unique in style, showcasing lesser-seen plates to share and a repertoire of brothy noodles. Try their Yum Hoi made with scallops, frisee, sea beans, red onion, and chilies. Wan Wan sports a noodles specialty menu that features their signature Sen Pla, veggie broth, seared branzino, shiitake mushrooms, and fish noodles. The atmosphere and decor are perfect for dates. The stylish and homey interior features exposed brick walls, sepia-toned checkerboard floors, tons of natural light, and colorful textiles covering banquettes and fluffy pillows. Wan Wan is situated at 209 Mulberry St. between Spring St. and Kenmare if you're in Nolita.

From Miami to New York, Kyu Offers a New Twist on Asian-Fusion Barbecue

Kyu is a wood-fired Asian-inspired restaurant. Owned by restaurateur Alan Omsky and business partner Jordan Sayfie, Kyu has a varied menu that offers multiple flavors inspired by the many adventures and global travels of the executive chef and the Japanese barbecue grilling practice, Yakiniku. Try their popular stone pot Thai fried rice served with king crab and a side of Japanese sweet potato smothered in black sugar. We hear their baby back ribs with yakiniku and cilantro are simply divine. The dining scene at Kyu is a lively one and shares the same clubby, live DJ atmosphere as its Miami counterpart. Be sure to bring a couple of friends and a big appetite. Make your way to Kyu at 324 Lafayette St between Houston and Bleeker St. in NoHo.
