Decisions are the enemy when you’re stoned, so put Little Serow in the driver’s seat. The Thai restaurant from Chef Johnny Monis serves a no-substitutions, seven-course tasting menu for $49. The food itself is a flavor and textural playground, and each bite tastes like the moment the Wizard of Oz cha-chings into color. The subterranean restaurant is dark enough that no one will judge you for behavior like licking plates, drinking milk to tame spice you rightfully think will kill you, or asking for a third basket of sticky rice. And when you leave, you’ll definitely think your server is your BFF. She’s not.
