Kuma Inn

Since it’s getting harder to make reservations for this Lower East Side eatery anyway, we see no point in keeping it a secret any longer… just be sure to only share Kuma Inn with your best friends! This tiny Filipino/Thai restaurant is located above a Bulgarian bar and everything about it – from its location to the art that covers the walls – is a little strange. Once you have located the spray-painted name, you climb two flights of crackling stairs that make you wonder if you’re in the right place. Boy, are you in for a surprise! Kuma Inn is an intimate, no-fuss, cash-only, BYOB restaurant. The food is comparable with (or better than) the uber-trendy “Asian Fusion” places in New York, minus the arrogant staff and sleek decor. Better yet, at Kuma Inn you pay about one-fifth of the price! It’s the perfect place for a quick bite, low-key romantic dinner or birthday party: nothing fancy, just great food in a fun atmosphere. Be sure to reserve well in advance and don’t forget your favorite wine and/or a couple of beers.

Sirocco

OK, we’ve got to be honest with you: the food is not the reason you go to Sirocco. You go there to dine alfresco at the 63rd floor and indulge in the breathtaking views of Bangkok city. This restaurant literally offers dining on top of the world, far away from the hot and smelly streets of Thailand’s capital. Sirocco is located in the State Tower, home to other great restaurants such as Mezzaluna, Cafe Mozu and Breeze. You enter Sirocco through a golden Dome and walk down illuminated steps – a true stairway to heaven. When you’re done admiring the view, get ready to enjoy some great live jazz performances. After dinner drinks are served at the Skybar, which you might recognize from the hit movie Hangover 2. Be prepared to pay extra, especially compared to common Thai price ranges. But it’s worth it!
