SRI closed for vacation and I need an alternative pls

comiendosiempre | Jul 14, 2009 05:25 AM

I have a bunch of chowhounds traveling to NYC this weekend for some meals and a principal reason for the trip was a large dinner at SRI. We will be about 8 people, maybe 10.

Anyway, of all things ---- SRI closed this week through early next week for vacation. Of course, I didn't have the foresight to check their vacation schedule a month or two back. The folks coming know Thai food well, and travel to Thailand often. So, my options are . . . ?

Chao Thai? I was there once and thought the food was great, at least most of it. Soup was better than at SRI, and red duck curry as good, or better. A couple of dishes though, we thought, were not as good. And, Chao Thai is tiny tiny. Likely though they could take us with a reservation. Still it just isn't such a comfortable spot for a large group.

Maybe Southern Spice for Indian?

Any other great Thai spot you might recommend? Thanks.
