Somtum Der is an East Village spot that specializes in Isan Thai food, and it's a great place for a fun dinner with a large group. The dining room is big and airy, with lots of long tables that will easily fit five to seven of your friends, and they have an especially good list of cocktails and Thai beer. Multiple types of papaya salad should be on your table: our go-tos are the tum thai kai kem, which gets an extra punch from salted duck egg, and the tum poo with tiny field crabs. Get the H’orderves Der so you can try all the sausages, and finish with grilled meats, larb, and some spicy prawn sashimi.
