We love you guys. Keep doing what you’re doing. Keep those bubble teas bubbling.
Alternatively, just rethink everything...
Meet Herb, a surprisingly elegant and unsurprisingly BYOB Thai spot standing at the ready to take you on a multicourse journey through... oh, you’ll see soon enough. It’s open now in Edgewater.
It looks a bit like the soft, cream-colored restaurants you find at island resorts. Which means, among other things, that it’s highly date-appropriate. Particularly if you have a bottle of rosé you’d like to squire around town.
There isn’t, however, much in the way of your standbys like pad thai and pad see ew. The chef has a thing for exotic and seasonal. So just turn yourself over to the three- or five-course tasting menu and relax.
Start with a betel leaf amuse-bouche, followed by meticulously arranged plates of blue shrimp (yes, blue—says it right there in the name), holy basil and fiery bird’s eye chili peppers.
And good thing you brought in a bottle of port, because... dessert. It’s at the chef’s whim. Whatever she’s in the mood to make.
We bet she’s in a Thai mood.
