2. Kuma Inn

Kuma Inn

An unsuspecting doorway on Ludlow Street—with no sign but vertical lettering on one side—leads to a stairway to this Thai restaurant. Run by King Phojanakong, who previously worked at such respected restaurants as Daniel, Kuma Inn offers an “Asian tapas” style experience, with several smaller dishes. They have several signature dishes on the menu, from a yellowfin tuna tartare to grilled salmon.
