It’s easy to miss Naraya, a tranquil little Thai restaurant, but that would be a shame, says polishprincess, who gets buzzed on their full, clean flavors and great sauces. The appetizers are good bets, including golden pouches with rock shrimp, duck tacos, Asian tamales and soft-shell crab. Vietnamese shrimp handrolls are stylishly presented in shot glasses. For mains, try fried catfish or tamarind salmon (also fried). They’ve got real desserts, too, like warm flourless chocolate cake.
