Description: Kin Shop is a contemporary Thai restaurant opened by Chef Harold Dieterle and Alicia Nosenzo. The duo chose the name, Kin Shop, because “kin,” is the Thai word for “to eat” and the restaurant is the “kin” to their acclaimed restaurant Perilla, a mere seven-minute walk away. Kin Shop’s menu features both contemporary reinterpretations of traditional Thai dishes and wholly new items inspired by Thai ingredients. Complementing Kin Shop’s menu (which is meant to be shared), are Thai-influenced specialty cocktails, a 75-label, spice-friendly international wine list with many bottles priced under $50, and a diverse globe-spanning selection of beers, many from small, craft producers. The casual, but polished setting features comfortable banquettes, a long granite bar, and a chef’s counter for walk-in dining with a front-row view.

It was exactly what I was looking for, an understated restaurant with really good food. The star of the night was surprisingly the oyster bun special. A crispy, deep fried oyster with Thai vegetables on a cloud like bun, that just melted in your mouth, awesome. Roasted duck for dinner didn't disappoint. It came with the best and most flavorful...

We've been wanting to try Kin Shop for some time as we really like Perilla, which is Harold Dieterle (Top Chef) and Alicia Nosenzo's lovely first restaurant. So we finally grabbed a friend and arrived for dinner on a recent Sunday night. The restaurant is located on a section of Sixth Ave. that reminds me of how NYC mostly looked... More

The food here is very flavorful but not in the typically hot Thai spice range. The sauce for the grilled prawns, a house specialty, is a genuinely original take on a satay sauce and luscious (We ate the unused sauce with our spoons.). Everything was well-prepared and tasty, but portions seemed small (although we did not leave hungry). Service was... More

Our very first meal in NYC on a hot mid afternoon. Lovely service and pleasant environment. Partners goat mussaman was outstanding- my vege noodle fish a bit dull. Kale salad was interesting. The beer was great and perhaps the evening meals would be nicer. We had better Asian inspired food elsewhere.

So when u really feel like thai food especially if you have been to Thailand you expect a certain level of taste and menu! I encourage creativity and reinvention but when the red curry duck comes with soggy oily bread and some mint I felt like am having lebanese pastries also known as sufiha in Indian paratha bread so this...

Restaurant Week in NYC ends soon, but we enjoyed the prix fixe $38/pp very much. I did not even look at the regular menu, but hopefully this will still give a sense of this restaurant's food. Three courses: starters, main, and dessert. We both liked the raw kale salad with hot pecan dressing. (I really want people serving kale to... More

We made a res at Kin Shop before jazz one Sunday nite in the village. The restaurant was very welcoming and pleasant, and the service (by a waitress) was excellent and informative. We had many questions for her and she was able to answer all of them. Our meal was excellent, and I would recommend the four condiments with a... More

I liked that the servers were excellent! The food was amazing and they had several gluten free options. My friends enjoyed a tasting menu paired with wine and had a wonderful evening. So much they invited me to go with for another meal before our trip was complete.

We ate at this restaurant about 2 years ago and loved it so we wanted to return during a recent trip to the city. Although we had a nice table near the front window, the noise level got really high during our meal. The menu is very limited, so I wound up ordering the same entree I had 2 years... More
