When Chantanee swapped humble digs for a sleek lounge more befitting its 425 pedigree, some of its mom-and-pop charm got lost in the shuffle. Despite the creamy surroundings Thai-hards should note the number of dishes one just won’t find elsewhere, along with real-deal touches like crunchy shrimpies and crab paste in the papaya som tam; or chili sauces and serrano soys so authentic to Thailand they’ll take you there. The adjoining bar, Naga, is the Eastside destination for smart cocktails: Ask the barkeep to make you anything with rum or cachaca.
