Bangkok Pavilion Restaurant
After a fire gutted Bangkok Pavilion Restaurant in 2005, the eatery rose like a phoenix as the owners rebuilt it from the ground up. Bright-blue seating now adds color to the new dining room, but the food hasn’t changed in the kitchen, where chefs infuse spicy, sour, sweet, salty, and savory flavors into their Thai dishes. They drape chicken in a blanket of thai peanut sauce, submerge bits of beef in sweet coconut-milk curry, and sauté jumbo shrimp in a spicy red sauce. During lunch hours, guests can sample tom yum soup, crispy spring rolls, and red-curry chicken–a buffet lineup that earned the eatery a “Best Lunch Buffet” callout from The Pitch in 2007.
