Kru seems destined to join the ranks of hyped up high-end Thai restaurants in NYC, and we support that. The food here is vibrant and vegetable-heavy, making liberal use of excellent produce sourced from Hudson Valley farmers. We love the Thai relish plates: The pork jowl version is mellow and creamy, while the nam prik almond variety is layered, floral, and packs some heat. You also can’t go wrong with any of the curries. Your server will probably warn you several times that the one with beef tongue is very, very spicy. It is, but it’s worth it.
