“It’s kind of like a speakeasy kind of thing. It’s kinda cool. It’s like you’re in on some kind of secret, you know?”

Wise words from John Favreau’s character in “Swingers” and it still rings true today. Take Little Serow in Washington DC for example. Named one of Bon Appetit’s Hot 10, ranked by GQ as one the Most Outstanding Restaurants in the US and has been one of the Washingtonian’s 100 Very Best Restaurants in 2012 and 2013, but if it wasn’t eager line of customers outside the signless, basement-level restaurant you might never know it existed. They also don’t take reservations and the prix fixe, family-style menu changes weekly. The only recommendation we can give you is to get there before their 5:30 opening time or be prepared to wait a while. Once seated, order up a Singha and get ready for a one-of-a-kind Northern/Northeastern Thai food experience care of Chef-Owner/Thai food mastermind Johnny Monis.
