When Basil Restaurant opened in 2009, the Columbus Dispatch reported on owner Rhome Ruanphae's inspiration: his mother?s string of successful Thai restaurants?beginning with Thai Village in Chicago?s Wicker Park neighborhood?that she ran with her husband while he was growing up. Rhome borrowed his mother?s culinary mastery for Basil, which teleports taste buds to Thailand with a menu of authentic Southeast Asian cuisine. Chefs gather rice or egg noodles to lay the foundation for many entrees, such as specialty kee mow, a soft or crispy maelstrom of rice noodles with thai basil, tomatoes, and bell peppers. The menu also features a rainbow of curries, soups, salads, and appetizers to keep ravenous diners from eating their napkins.
The seasoned confines of a former antique shop welcome diners to Basil Restaurant, decked out with bare brick and a retro advertisement for ice painted on the back wall. As a glittering chandelier casts light on colorful curries, wine-dark panels of varnished wood gaze at diners from the wall, and exposed lengths of ductwork add a neoindustrial aesthetic without the overkill of steam-powered dessert trays or austere Orwellian maitre d's.

With its intermingling aromas of garlic, ginger, coriander, turmeric, and cumin, New Taj Mahal is unmistakably dedicated to the bold, traditional flavors of regional Indian cuisine. You'll find further evidence on the menu, which features homemade paneer cooked with spinach and creamy curry sauce, crispy samosas, and yogurt-marinated lamb served straight from the clay tandoor oven. To ensure that their cooking is suitable for virtually every palate, the chefs tailor the amount of spice added to each dish. This means that orders can be prepared mild or with enough incendiary heat to require a chaser of glacier fragments.
From the very first line of Madrid’s menu, guests are likely to be intrigued. The creatively named first header, “Wontonanadas,” introduces an appetizer that fuses wontons and empanadas. The result: deliciously crispy fried shells stuffed with blends of pulled pork, serrano ham, and sriracha pickles. Aside from the appetizers are small plates of Madrid clams in a spicy white-wine sauce and full entrees of linguine tangled with seasoned chicken and chorizo crumbles.
