At a restaurant where the signature dish is called metmamuanghimmaphan, first-time diners are sure to have a few questions. The spirited servers at May Kitchen + Bar are perpetually untangling foreign phrases, matching pandan leaf and Siamese watercress razzle-dazzle spied on neighboring tables to their menu descriptions. May serves outstanding versions of central Thai classics. Eaters who've soured on moo satay will appreciate May's cliché-wrecking version of grilled pork skewers, supple and rich from a swim in a curry propped up by coconut milk. Nearly half of the appetizers are fried, with the yum phak boong drawing the most appreciative ogles.
