When the owners of V. Thai remodeled the restaurant’s interior, complete with a show-stopping chandelier, they also tackled the menu. Classic Thai curries and noodle dishes join new Vietnamese options, such as traditional Vietnamese pho noodle soups flavored with tripe, brisket, and ox tail. The chefs whip up both Vietnamese and Thai specialty dishes, including caramel-sautéed fish and the Sizzling Ocean Plate, which serves up the oceans bounty—everything from scallops to squid to sunken treasure—on a sizzling hot plate.

Chef Laura Pensiero has trained at the French Culinary Institute, possesses a background in nutrition, and radiates with genuine enthusiasm for healthy, local and sustainable foods. So, it’s not entirely surprising she’s racked up some local and national fame, including features in O Magazine and the title as one of Hudson Valley Magazine’s Four Best Veteran Chefs in 2012. Best of all, patrons don’t even have to visit one of Pensiero’s award-winning restaurants, Gigi Trattoria or Gigi Market, to get a taste of her food; they can stop into Just Salad, where she is the master-mind behind all the recipes.
Dedicated to providing healthy and fast meals, Just Salad assembles more than 14 varieties of wraps and salads, or puts customers in charge, allowing them to concoct their own lunch from a wide range of fresh vegetables, cheeses, proteins, and Chef Pensiero’s homemade dressings. Salads are tossed inside reusable bowls, which the shop encourages customers to bring back on their second, third, and so-on visits. In return, they’ll receive two free “essential toppings”—such as lentils, mandarin oranges, and artichoke hearts—and one free cheese tossed onto a salad, tucked inside a wrap, or pelted at their mortal enemy.
Befitting its name, Mexican Festival Restaurant strives to celebrate the flavors of traditional Latin cuisine while immersing diners in a vivacious setting that embraces a similarly vibrant spirit.
Time-Honored Cooking Techniques
Servers make every order of guacamole at guests' tables, adroitly mixing onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and jalapeños into the creamy avocado. When it comes to entrees, the chefs demonstrate a similar dedication to time-honored techniques. Beef-filled enchiladas suizas arrive topped with creamy tomatillo sauce and melted chihuahua and oaxaca cheeses, mole sauce lends a decadent richness to orders of roasted chicken, and grilled salmon fillets feature a sweet-and-spicy sauce made from mangoes and ancho chilies. Homemade flan with grilled pineapple ensures meals conclude on a refreshingly sweet note.
An Eponymous Mural
Adobe-hued and textured walls reinforce the restaurant's deep regional ties. The dining room's most prominent piece, however, is a massive mural entitled Mexican Festival, which was painted by Mexican artist, Juan Lopez. The sprawling mural features an assortment of vignettes—including images of bull riders and villagers in traditional Mexican clothing—which complement the vibrant colors of the blue-green wooden rafters and the cerulean alcoves filled with votive candles and blooming flowers.
