Nestled on a quiet corner of Grove Street is Betel, a Southeast Asian respite offering a sleek atmosphere and outrageously good food. As a veteran of Thai kitchens from various Sydney, Australia restaurants, chef Adam Woodfield considers himself a resident expert on the cuisine (and he is). At Betel, he blends modern Thai cooking techniques with inspiration from the hawker stalls of Thailand. The result of this is incredibly flavorful food; sweet, salty, spicy, fresh, and unique, making Betel one of our New York City favorites.
