Upper East Side Thrives with THEP

Upper East Side Thrives with THEP

The Upper East Side has been lacking a proper Thai style restaurant for a few years. But, now THEP is making a thriving and fruitful statement.

The traditional northern dishes of THEP are incredible and match some of the best service you will find east of Central Park. Located just steps away from the new Q subway stop at 72nd Street you will find this amazing establishment.

When you walk in there is a sense of fun. You want to be there and it will make you happy. Bright colors on plating and spectacular seating arrangements just add to the sparkle.

Everything on the menu is perfection. The summer season is just rounding up and they are still highlighting some fantastic selections including Watermelon Furikake (diced watermelon with brown sugar, sesame and bonito flakes), THEP Crab Fried Rice served in a hollowed out coconut (jasmine rice, onion, scallion, egg, jumbo lump crab meat, soft shell crab tempura) and a Gigantic Pad Thai with Lobster Tail that is presented in a large golden bowl and weighs in near 8lbs.

The crab rice is unique in composition and sweetly fills your taste buds with delight. All of the summer dishes are enormous servings that are perfect to share with your dinner guests as they sip beautiful seasonal cocktails including the Loco Coco (with Malibu coconut rum, pineapple juice, coconut water, lime juice, lemongrass ginger syrup), the Melon Madness (with Captain Morgan spiced rum, fresh watermelon juice, fresh orange juice and lime juice and the THEP-75 with Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish gin, Butterfly pea flower infused syrup, lime juice and prosecco).

Even beyond the summer there is something just so special about THEP being in the neighborhood. I can see this establishment being around for years with their sense of warmness and bringing joy through fantastic tastes. When saying all on the menu is worth a taste it is true. Treats are even to be found in their staples such as signature dishes as the Khao Soi (northern Thai egg noodles and chicken in a creamy coconut curry broth, pickled mustard greens, red onions, fried shallots and crispy egg noodles) and Pineapple Fried Rice (jasmine rice stir-fried with pineapple, onions, scallions, tomatoes, carrots, curry powder and eggs) served in a hollowed half pineapple.

If you are looking for a perfect place to make your week on the Upper East Side be sure to visit THEP today.

THEP is open for lunch and dinner every day of the week. They have a great lunch special and a happy hour as well.
