Fodor's Expert Review Sukho Thai
Certainly the most extensive Thai restaurant in the area, Sukho Thai fits snugly into its arty neighborhood with servers wearing all black and a hip, art-gallery approach to decorating. You can't go wrong with any of the curries, but the fried whole fish with three spicy chili sauces is a showstopper. Creative homemade desserts take the form of "dragon puffs" (think Thai-style beignets) and black-rice pudding. The most imaginative and extensive tea menu in the area compensates for the lack of a liquor license, although you can bring your own wine for a corkage fee. An Uptown location (4519 Magazine St.) has a larger menu, as well as Asian beer, cocktails, and sake.
