Soi is a Thai spot that works equally well for a casual weeknight dinner or a Friday night pre-going-out group hang. The food is from the Isan region of Thailand, and the menu is pretty massive. We recommend the chicken panang curry stuffed with ground chicken and lemongrass or the pork belly stir fry topped with a sunny-side-up egg, but you have many, many other options, and you’ll find an array of interesting cocktails here, too. It’s easy to score a table on the weekends, so it’s a perfect group dinner option if you’ve left planning to the last minute.
