Finally, Thai food in a fine dining context! Kin Khao (colloquial Thai slang for “let’s eat!”) is an unlikely gem of individuality inside a corporate hotel (the Parc 55 Wyndham) in Union Square. Owner and Thailand native Pim Techamuanvivit is an author, artisanal jam maker and culinary personality who created a menu of foods she likes to eat. She proudly notes that the seafood is neither frozen nor pumped with antibiotics, and all sauces and curry pastes are made from scratch, often through painstaking processes involving many ingredients. Chef de cuisine Michael Gaines, who helped realize Techamuanvivit’s dream, previously worked at Central Kitchen and Manresa, the Michelin-starred restaurant owned by her significant other David Kinch.
