Step into the West Village’scharming Pinto Garden and immediately feel as though you’ve been transported outside the city’s hustle and bustle. The front room feels like a cozy home den, with exposed brick, stacks of books, dark wood, and floral vases adorning the walls, while the backyard garden is a romantic, plant strewn space just perfect for summer dining. The menu here changes seasonally, showcasing both locally sourced ingredients and impressive Thai cuisine from every region of the country. While every dish we tried here was complete perfection, we look forward to coming back in the fall (and winter) to see how the menu evolves with the changing landscape. From the ambiance to the unrivaled food, this is definitely one of our favorite newly discovered restaurants in town.
