With its LED light fixtures, minimalist wooden tables, and grass wall accents, Noble Thai feels a little bit like a co-working space. But chances are a WeWork membership doesn’t come with great kao soi and shredded papaya salad. And though it opened in 2021, most of the recipes at this Noble Square spot have actually been around for decades. The chef was originally a part of Chicago staple, Opart Thai, and she’s brought over some of her signature dishes like tiger cry. With lots of long tables it’s great for large groups, but it's also possible to grab a seat at their greenhouse-esque bar with a skylight for a solo meal of pad thai, a cocktail, and some sunshine.
