At Thai Cafe, a brother-and-sister duo of chefs choreographs salty, sweet, sour, and bitter flavors in authentic recipes from their home village of Bangpoo. After perusing the menu, dining groups hush stomach grumbles with a helping of the succulent rib eye gracing the nam tok beef starter ($7.95). Stir-fried plates flourish with fresh vegetables and meats ($11.95) or tofu ($10.95), and curry dishes are arrayed in colors ranging from mild yellows to tongue-melting greens that, like forecasts with a picture of a sun wearing sunglasses, indicate impending heat ($11.95–$13.95). The end of the meal brings a parade of house-made desserts, including creamy coconut cake ($4.95) and crème brûlée infused with real vanilla beans ($4.50). Throughout their feast, customers relax in the cafe, with its welcoming yellow-hued walls and teardrop light fixtures, or slide up to the comfortable wooden bar to marvel at a range of libations while practicing scary faces in the expansive wall mirror.
