Sea Thai Bistro Restaurant Review

: Walking into Sea Thai Bistro, all eyes are drawn to the striking glass sea urchins hanging from above. The restaurant has a lounge-like feel with sea-themed sculptures glowing throughout the darkly lit room and most action centered around the U-shaped bar, a lively place for drinks and dining. The menu highlights organic, sustainable, local ingredients and, ever-conscious of the sea, sanctioned choices from Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch. "Old standby" dishes get artful treatment by the kitchen. Begin with four fat skewers of chicken or firecracker prawns, fried and rolled in coconut and served with a fiery chili sauce. Red pumpkin coconut milk curry in a deep-as-the-ocean square bowl features garden crookneck squash and peas. Farmers market produce finds its way into most dishes. Seafood includes grilled filets and curries in green (Dover sole), yellow (prawns) and red (panko-crusted monkfish tail with butter beans). On warm eves, sit by the large open windows that give an indoor-outdoor patio feel.
