Maybe you’ve been bar hopping, or maybe wherever you went for dinner was disappointing. Either way, some nights require a fourth meal, and when that happens, head to Boda near the West End for some Thai food and cocktails. This place stays open until 1am serving a wide variety of small plates, salads, and grilled skewers. However, if you’re craving pad thai or panang curry, they have that too. They don’t take reservations, but if there’s a wait, you can look through the menu over a drink at LFK across the street in the meantime. It’s hard to go wrong, but make sure you don’t forget the spicy wings and grilled quail eggs.
