It’s all about “location, location, location” for the popular Thai Basil at 26th and J streets, an ideal spot for Midtown scenesters seeking coconut milk cocktails and spicy curry dishes. The fashionable Thai restaurant has an outdoor patio and medium-size dining room where acid jazz from Thailand plays as its background music. The menu, standard with appetizers such as grilled chicken satay and fried spring rolls with chicken, pork and vegetables, also Thai spicy salad with lemon grass and fiery green papaya salad. Thai Basil also offers grilled dishes, daily seafood specials, noodle and fried rice entrees such as pad Thai, drunken noodles and rice plates served with curries in red, green and yellow sauces. Up for dessert? Try a mango treat served with sweet rice and coconut ice cream. Cindy Arora
