Aloy Modern Thai

Mark Antonation
Think all Thai restaurants have to offer is pad Thai and crab-cheese wontons? Think again. Aloy Modern Thai, which opened in February 2016 in the Ballpark neighborhood, does serve the ubiquitous noodle and fried-cheese dishes, but its menu is packed with subtle and sophisticated dishes, as well: kobe tenderloin in a tangy tamarind sauce; mild alligator meat punched up by a hit of Thai herbs and spicy, earthy black pepper; rack of lamb alongside beets, sweet potatoes and a rich massaman curry. Go early for the fantastic happy-hour cocktails, and stay to enjoy dinner in an inviting, fire-orange dining room with equally warm service.
