Best Restaurant for Romance - 2009
King and I Thai - CLOSED
In some ways, our ideas about romantic dining are a little baffling. Sitting at a table with a starched white tablecloth, fearing the moment you might drop a fork, just isn't very libidinous. Feeling comfortable is romantic, and so is putting a flower from your drink in your hair. And what could be more sensual than the scent of lemongrass, Thai basil, and red coconut milk rising up from your food? How about shamelessly feeding your honey a steamy bite of pad Thai or an icy passion-fruit sorbet? At the King and I Thai you can savor the beautiful mix of sweet and spicy that is Thai cooking. You can also share a flaming Tikki Love Potion for two. Most important, you can partake in these erotic delights in a very private booth with your shoes off, dress slipping off shoulder, hair messy, and hands a-wandering—no one around you will be any the wiser.
