Pok Pok NY

718-923-9322  •  $$
ADDRESS: 117 Columbia St, (bet Kane and Irving sts), Brooklyn, NY 11231

CUISINE: Thai, Asian

FEATURES: Full Bar, Handicap Access, Patio Seating, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly

DETAILS
Chef Andy Ricker's celebrated Portland, Ore., Thai spot Pok Pok has been drawing huge crowds to its no-reservations Red Hook outpost. The patient hungry wait for the likes of house specialty Kai Yaang: charcoal rotisserie-roasted chicken stuffed with lemongrass, garlic, pepper and cilantro. Full bar. Serving lunch Sat-Sun, dinner nightly. "The first way Pok Pok NY shifts your perspective is by offering the food of northern Thailand, which has been largely missing from New York. With a wealth of ingredients and an abundance of pork and firewood, the region developed a cuisine that is less incendiary than other Thai cooking, contains almost no coconut milk and makes great use of the grill."
— Pete Wells, The New York Times, June 26, 2012

"Ricker ... has a convert’s zeal for re-creating the more or less exact mood and feel of the kind of place you’ll find recommended in the tattered pages of an old Thailand Rough Guide."
— Adam Platt, New York magazine, July 22, 2012

Michelin Guide 2015: * (very good)
The New York Times
: ** (very good); Critics' pick
New York magazine: *** (generally excellent)
Zagat 2014: 24 food rating (very good to excellent)
Time Out New York: ****
