Just tried out the new Thai-French fusion place on 9th ave at 46th street in HK. Very impressed for the neighborhood- as it offers good food with a cool atmosphere that is atypical for 9th ave. We had 2 apps- Crab and Ripe Mango Summer Roll and Thai Glass Noodle Sausages- 2 Mains- Duck Breast with Butternut Squash Dumplings and King Tiger Prawns w/ folded pasta sheets and zucchini noodles- and two drinks for $68.00. Great value and portions were quite generous!
The summer roll was good, but lacked a signifigant amount of mango or crab. The Sausages were tasty and were plated with peanutes, sauce, peppers, limes, noodles and lettuce so you could make your own "taco-style" apps, kinda like the traditional larb dish. (Husband said it was his fav in a long time) The duck and raviolis were awesome, with a very nice broth. My shrimp was healthy and light, and the accompanying peanut sauce had a nice spice to it- although I would have preferred it even spicier.
The wine list was crap, Mondavi and the likes, but the bartender was very nice and had lots of great ideas for innovative cocktails ($10). There were several beers on draft too. The place is very hip and young, with a live DJ on most nights. The DJ is loud though, but not too loud for a Fri./Sat. night.
