Some restaurant locations seem cursed, but Spicy Basil seems to have broken the jinx at 1 Broadway. This fast Thai/Chinese spot has settled into a steady, confident track. The kitchen produces all the standards of urban Amerasian cuisine and occasionally reaches excellence with such marvels as the Panang curry and the shu mai dumplings -- shrimp and pork-stuffed dumplings wrapped in the house's own dough.
