BKNY Thai stuffs a whole fish with herbs, wraps it in banana leaf, and steams it beautifully, Pookipichu says. It’s the signature specialty at this under-explored restaurant in Bayside, Queens, where the crab fried rice is nearly as good. In fact, Pookipichu adds, BKNY’s best dishes are the equal of those at such local lights as SriPraPhai and Ayada. So why haven’t we heard more about this place? “It’s a Thai restaurant that’s not near a subway,” he says, “so it never gets discussed.”
