Authentic Thai Cuisine

    The Commons // Ithaca, NY  


The original and only one in Ithaca since 2001, Taste of Thai is an independently owned and operated local restaurant that offers superior quality and truly authentic Thai cuisine prepared by skilled, experienced chefs and presented by friendly, professional staff. With an ambiance boasting unique but unobtrusive Thai artifacts (sculptures, carvings, paintings, tapestries, statutes, and floral arrangements) Taste of Thai is well-suited to both casual and fine dining. Linen napkins and elegant Thai-design china add to the dining pleasure.

Pacific Tavern opened in May 2010 and is located inside the Smith Hotel Brooklyn. Since then, Golden Spork winner Chef Lang has been serving both quality interpretations of classic dishes and daring new ventures into the uncharted territories of food.

Pacific Tavern's interior, designed by the award-winning Hayden Collective, reflects the hip sensibilities of the surrounding area while also paying tribute to Brooklyn's storied past. The multi-level restaurant offers the choice to observe passers-by in the glass-encased Cascade Bar on the 2nd floor, or watch the art of cooking as it occurs in the open-kitchen dining room.
