The food at Busaba, a new vegetarian Thai restaurant, doesn’t suffer from a lack of meat, says abeccarey, who found it fresh and tasty. Green curry with roti and pad see ew are nicely seasoned (there are three levels of spiciness). The menu designates vegan dishes, as well as ones that can be “vegan-ized.” It’s a surprisingly elegant place, and the service is very hospitable.
