THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Born Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Born is a Thai restaurant with a twist: it pledges to reinvent Thai food. With this declaration, the kitchen sets about restructuring Thai classics to arrive at dishes that are not one thing or another, but simply a mix of pan-Asian tastes and textures at their most quizzical. Fresh Vietnamese-style summer rolls have the texture of mashed potatoes, and the peasant-like dish kao soi, or Burmese noodles, is a strange concoction that has more Indian than Thai features. Other options include the grilled beef entrée---a take-off on the fiery Crying Tiger---that features beer-marinated beef, a napoleon of fried tofu with green curry, and duck with olives and basil. Lemon grass crème brûlée and a cashew-ginger brownie provide comforting finales.
