Vicky and Mark, Yuqi’s Thai Cuisine proprietors, who have named their new Thai bistro for their daughter, have a fantastic menu for Hell’s Kitchen actors, dancers, musicians, and artists, as well as the local arts aficionados. Located near Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, Lincoln Center Theaters, Carnegie Hall, City Center, the Ailey Center for Dance, and the Museum of Modern Art, Yuqi’s is your dining destination for relaxed, casual seating and warm, attentive service. You can dine in, take out, or order online for home delivery. Deliveries are available from 43rd St. to 64th Streets, and 6th Avenue to the Westside Highway! And, Yuqi’s is open from 11 AM to 11 PM, Sunday through Thursday, and 11 AM to 11:30 PM, Friday and Saturday. A special on Happy Hour beer is available all day, every day, 11 AM to 7 PM!

Yuqi’s expansive array of original Appetizers include: Basil Rolls, with fresh Thai basil, lettuce, steamed shrimp, and rice noodle, rolled in fresh spring roll, served with tamarind sauce and ground peanuts; Curry Puff, two puff pastries with ground chicken, sweet potato, curry powder and Thai spices, served with cucumber relish; Hoy Jor, a combination of chicken, pork, shrimp, and crabmeat, served with sweet plum sauce; and Golden Ring, crispy fried calamari, served with chili sauce. Among the Soups, you will find my favorite, Tom Yum, traditional Thai hot and sour soup in lemongrass, lime leaf, and mushroom broth, with chicken, shrimp, or seafood, and Woonsen Soup, clear broth soup with ground chicken, bean thread, shitake mushroom, scallion, and celery. Salads include Avocado Salad, with fresh lettuce, romaine, radicchio, tomato, cucumber, carrot, red cabbage, and avocado with Yuqi’s special dressing, as well as Thai Salad, with lettuce, romaine, radicchio, tomato, cucumber, carrot, red cabbage, bean curd, and peanut dressing.

At Yuqi’s, the Noodles are a highlight, including Pad Si Ew, with flat rice noodle, sautéed with your choice of meat, Chinese broccoli, egg, and sweet soy sauce, as well as Pad Woonsen, crispy tofu, sautéed with bean thread, shitake mushroom, carrots, celery, baby corn, bell pepper, onion, scallion, and egg. Among the Fried Rice dishes, you will find Phrig Khing Fried Rice, with jasmine rice, stir-fried with your choice of meat, Prig Khing curry paste, string bean and lime leaves, and bell pepper, as well as Combination Fried Rice, with chicken, pork, and beef, with jasmine rice, egg, tomato, and scallion. Of course, Yuqi’s offers the full array of Curry dishes, including: Red or Green Curry, with Thai red or green curry paste in coconut milk, with your choice of meat, bamboo shoot, pepper, and basil; Panang Curry, with Panang curry paste in coconut milk with pineapple, basil, and red pepper: and Avocado Curry, with Thai red curry paste in coconut milk, with fresh basil, bamboo shoot, avocado, fried tofu, bell pepper, and mixed vegetables.

Seafood dishes are ever so tempting, such as: Squid in Love, with sautéed crispy squid, with string beans, bell pepper, garlic, and chili paste sauce; Jumbo Shrimp on Fire, with fried lightly battered jumbo shrimp, served with steamed broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, garlic, and tamarind sauce; plus Soft Shell Crab, with fried soft shell crab, topped with your choice of basil sauce, mango salad, and Thai herb or garlic sauce. Duck entrées include Duck Panang, crispy duck, topped with Panang curry sauce, pineapple, and fresh basil, as well as Duck Curry with Mango, a half duck served with red curry paste in coconut milk, bamboo, pineapple, bell pepper, and mango. Among an expansive list of additional entrées are Crispy Pork Basil, BBQ Chicken (Kai Yang), Lemongrass Chicken, Tender Ginger, with your choice of chicken, pork, beef, shrimp, squid, or vegetables, Thai Pork Chop, and Steak of Siam, a grilled, marinated Thai style pork chop. Yuqi’s Special Salads include: Yam Ta Lay, a seafood combination tossed with scallion, lemongrass, chili, red onion, and lime juice; Miang Kana Salad, cooked dried pork with ginger, red onion, ground peanut, lime juice, and Chinese broccoli; and Som Tum, with fresh papaya, tossed with peanut, string bean, chili, and lime juice.

Desserts are enticing, like Honey Banana, Fried Ice Cream, and Sticky Rice with Thai custard. In addition to a wine and beer selection, Yuqi’s also has Thai Iced Tea and Thai Iced Coffee. Lunch Specials, served 11 AM to 3 PM, are a real bargain at $9.95, including a generous list of Thai dishes that can be prepared with chicken, pork, beef, shrimp, squid, or vegetables, like Kua Gai Noodle, Pad Thai, Country Style Curry, Spicy String Bean, Spicy Bamboo, and Royal Vegetable. As mentioned above, Yuqi’s hours are perfect for performing artists, musicians, theater staff, and stage technicians, at the multitude of nearby theaters and concert halls, because you can stop for lunch before a matinee or rehearsal, or before an early or late evening performance. Yuqi’s is also located near Jazz at Lincoln Center and several midtown jazz clubs, and you can stop by after an early jazz set for dining in or takeout dishes. The Museum of Modern Art is a short walk east, on 53rd Street. My Goon Gob Woonsen, steamed jumbo shrimp with shiitake mushrooms, Napa cabbage, ginger, celery, and glass noodle, was one of the finest Thai dishes I have had in quite some time.
