Everybody knows that in New York City, you can find anything in any shape or form at any time of the day. So when my friends suggested we go to a Thai restaurant for a late lunch, I was expecting a hole in a wall with an aging Thai man stirring up buckets of pad thai and pots of green curry. This was not the case when we walked into Room Service in Hell’s Kitchen. The place had an extremely stylish and upscale decor, complete with Victorian-esque moldings, black and white tiles, and giant crystal chandeliers. And since we’re in New York, the waiters of course were very handsome Thai-speaking men who probably work to support their struggling model careers. This was in stark contrast to their food, which was surprisingly authentic with their Thai flavors, and took some risks with this fusion dish, Thai¬†Bouillabaisse. Though very different in flavor from a traditional bouillabaisse, it was definitely very flavorful, spicy but not overwhelming, and a perfect complement to my lychee Thai iced tea. Though I loved the food, I never thought I’d be eating it in such a European inspired setting… but in NYC, expect the unexpected, right?
