We can’t recall eating anything memorable while sitting on turf. That changed after trying crunchy papaya salad, Jasmine tea-smoked ribs that any pitmaster would fall for, and a sour sausage and crunchy rice salad at The Nuaa Table’s outdoor patio. The Thai spot has a thin strip of bright green artificial turf on Vanderbilt Avenue in Prospect Heights with about five or so tables where we foresee ourselves having several sweaty summer dinners in the future. Bring a date or a small group of friends to debate who gets the last BBQ Sriracha-sauced rib, and why “Work” by Britney Spears is the perfect song to squat to.
