The main reason foodies flock to Woodside is to go to SriPraPhai, pronounced See-PRA-pie. It's widely considered the best Thai restaurant in New York. Don't be overwhelmed by the huge menu—it's hard to go wrong. Crispy watercress salad, larb (ground pork salad with mint and lime juice), sauteed chicken with cashews and pineapple, kao-soy (curried egg noodles), and roasted duck green curry are a few standouts. If you go with a few people, order the delicately
flavored whole steamed fish. There's a large separate menu for vegetarians. But prepare your palate: your mouth might feel like a five-alarm fire by the time you're finished.
