Pulsating from the Park Slope area of Brooklyn, Beet offers a menu of Thai-influenced dishes. Rev up human food processors with an appetizer of the spicy plum-glazed wings, or let golden puffs packed with chicken, potato, and curry powder,volley flavor onto the tonguecourt. Beet’s chefs whip up piquant curries, including green and pineapple, as well as classic Thai stir-fries such as basil and garlic simmered in spicy chili sauce and cartoon fire, filling out dishes with protein sources such as chicken or beef. Inspired by Japanese and French food-fashion, Beet’s panko crusted chicken breast coats itself in garlic, ginger, and spicy black-bean sauce; the roasted halved drunken chicken stumbles through a bushel of mango salad on its way to the plate.
Formed of exposed brick and flowing fuchsia drapery, the modern, Zagat-rated Beet Thai has garnered a mélange of press for its distinct lunch and dinner dishes, which borrow select flavors from the culinary powerhouses of France and Japan. Steaming starters of crab and shrimp cool in savory chili-peanut & plum dipping sauces, and entrees utilize champagne, bamboo, and mango to ramp up pork chops and crispy duck.
