Bringing an intensity and flair to traditional Thai dishes as well as to innovative ones

Blackened cod at Another Monkey

Another Monkey maintains an extensive wine list, which on the one hand is a reassuring line of continuity from Conduit and on the other is paradoxical. Thailand is not wine country, and Thai cuisine (like Indian and Mexican cuisine, to name two other large examples) didn't evolve with wine. But wine geeks must love a challenge, because the carefully bound list is presented with almost biblical reverence. Beer is still preferable, in my view, but not the almost undrinkably bitter Duvel, the only Belgian beer I've ever had that I didn't like. That's not the beer proclaimed by the window sign, by the way.
