I write this on behalf of my husband, who loves Thai food (I am deathly allergic to nuts, so no Thai restaurants for me, alas). Our neighborhood has two Thai restaurants, and the one my husband prefers is Samui Thai. Samui has a big front deck, recently painted a cheerful turquoise — it’s a nice, sunny location in Capitol Hill’s quiet 15th Ave. business district. When my husband arrived there with Chloe this afternoon they were made welcome (the hostess brought Chloe a bowl of water), though it won’t be too long before the deck is closed again for the winter.
I’m not giving Samui a rating, because I haven’t eaten there myself. I can report, though, that my husband approves of the food, as does my mother-in-law, who lived in Thailand for several years, is a sensational cook herself, and is bracingly honest in her reviews of restaurants.
