Venice isn’t exactly a hotbed of quality Thai restaurants, so it’s a big deal that one of LA’s coolest Thai spots, Night + Market, opened their third location down near the beach. If you’ve been to one of their other restaurants, then you know the deal at Night + Market Sahm - great Thai food, occasionally with a modern twist (like drunken noodles with pastami, and a personal-sized peking duck pizza). The bright space on Lincoln is already slammed, with hour plus waits on weekends, but once you do get seated, food comes out quickly (if occasionally in a random order), service is efficient but friendly, and there’s plenty of natural wine to drink. If you live in the area, this is about to be your regular spot.
