We went to Kin Shop a couple weeks ago and were blown away by Chef Harold Dieterle's unique take on Northern Thai cuisine. I actually went back a few nights ago to try the rest of the menu, and yes, it's all good (weakest link = jungle curry, which had great flavor, but more broth and less "stuff" than I'd like in a main course).
For those of you who work, live, or play in the West Village, here's a bit of good news: As of today, Kin Shop is now open for lunch. No word yet on whether Dieterle will be serving lunch-only specials or deals, but how does a hot bowl of Steamed Pork Meatball Soup with Crispy Garlic, Bok Choy Shoots, and Black Soy Sauce sound to carry you through the cold winter?
