If you've got Thai food on the mind, a recent opening is need-to-know. The newcomer to the East Village, called Soothr, is located at 204 E. 13th St.
Soothr, which gets its name from the Thai word for "recipe," specializes in dishes crafted following "the generational family recipes that have shaped the owners' childhood and time growing up in Thailand," according to the business's website.
The new spot offers starters like fried pork ribs and lotus root chips; soups like hearty seafood tom yum and stewed beef noodle; noodle and rice dishes like crispy wonton pad thai and imperial chicken over rice; and meat and seafood entrees like pad ped (stir-fried duck) and pad hoi lai (sauteed clams). Soothr also offers nine signature cocktails, each named for a different gemstone.
Soothr has already attracted fans thus far, with a five-star rating out of seven reviews on Yelp.
Tim C., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on May 16, wrote, "I'd definitely recommend this spot for anyone looking for great Thai."
Yelper Jesse K. added, "I just tried the tom yum soup as my first dish from this place, and it is magical."
Interested? Soothr is open for lunch and dinner daily and offers delivery and takeout.
