Tiparos Thai Cuisine and Sushi Bar boasts an exquisite dining space with art-dotted exposed brick walls and elegant wood tables. Luxurious gold curtains divide the dining space and encourage impromptu productions of The Music Man, starring the kitchen staff.
Tiparos Thai Cuisine and Sushi Bar
Lauded by interior designer Nate Berkus on Check, Please!, Tiparos Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar is home to a menu of Thai noodle dishes, sushi, and pan-Asian favorites served in a cozy space. Sushi chefs prepare maki mono rolls, nigiri, and sashimi behind the long bar illuminated by a line of colorful and partially edible orb lamps. Chefs can convert many entrees into vegetarian dishes and adjust the spice level of each curry, meat, or noodle dish to please both prim and reckless tongues. Tapestries imported from Thailand brighten the eatery's exposed-brick walls, while patterned paintings grid white walls beside potted flora.
