This traditional Thai spot aims to bring the bustle and sophistication of Bangkok's financial district (Silom 12 is a street address there) to the former Cafe Matou space in Bucktown. The menu takes diners through a tour of contemporary Asian cuisine, with noodles, stir-fry, curries and rice dishes, along with rotating daily specials such as crispy soft-shell crab with white and green onions in a creamy cumin sauce or pineapple sauce-laced pork shank. The hip, tranquil atmosphere is marked by mellow tunes, low lighting and flickering candles on the communal table and high-top tables. It's BYOB for now, but the cozy bar area, adorned with photographs of the Thai financial district, is sure to be hopping once a liquor license is granted.
