A mix of industrial design and hipster chic decor, NaiYaRa blends casual cool and intimate sophistication under one roof. Helmed by Chef Piyarat Potha Arreeratn, known to most simply as Chef Bee, NaiYaRa presents Thai street food in an environment that is lively, laid back, and upscale (minus the fuss).
Something to sip
Blend Chef’s Bee’s own special Bee Sauce (Thai Chili, palm syrup, and lemongrass ginger) with BluePrint Lime Ginger Juice and Beefeater Gin, the Killer Bee refreshes, invigorates, and clears your sinuses. How’s that for a home remedy?
For something citrusy with kick, the Mekhong Mule features Absolut Elyx, lemongrass, ginger, and Mio sparkling sake. For something sweet and refreshing, the S(H)angria-(L)a blends Pinot Noir, Veev Acai, pear, honeydew, and cantaloupe.
Something to savor
Start with the Thai Street Dumplings, made with fried chicken and served with celery, oyster sauce and Thai chili, and the White Fish Truffle, made with lychee, yuzu, Hawaiian sea salt and wasabi caviar. Then, if you still have room, get outside the box and try something adventurous from the menu’s many offerings, including the Beef Jerky, Salmon Demon Slayer, and more.
Happy hour runs daily from 5-7 p.m. and features menu items starting at $7.
