Night & Market Unique Thai on Westside

Went to Night & Market for the second time. Very impressed. Very unusual street Thai food, good service and full bar. Every dish was good. Nothing else like it around here or anywhere I know in LA.

    I enjoyed Night+Market as well. You can tell it's influenced by northern Thai street food by the abundance of pork on the menu. Very pork-centric. And you can watch old foreign movies on the wall while you eat!

      Have they moved to the westside? I thought it was at Sunset & Doheny?

        It is. That's still the westside.

          No, it's not. The westside ends in Beverly Hills. Sunset & Doheny is West Hollywood which is considered Central L.A. Very curious about Night & Market though.

            Its worth a visit. Not your typical Thai fare. Lots of unique flavors. Heavy pork influence.

              The westside starts at Western. Hence the name. Ask any native Angeleno, or anyone is Atwater Village.

                I'm a native Angeleno, and I most definitely would NOT consider anything west of Western to be the "westside." For me, the westside starts at Fairfax....

                At any rate, to bring this back to the topic.... To the OP, what kind of flavors can one expect? I normally associate Thai w/ heat, sharp citrus-y, and (sometimes) sweet. And what's the price range per person, roughly?

                I'll enter the fray.

                L.A. Times had an article several years back about where exactly the "Westside" begins. Conclusion: The Westside begins at La Brea.

                  Then they contradict themselves. They also did this mapping project:

                  http://projects.latimes.com/mapping-la/neighborhoods/region/westside/

                  which shows the westside ending including Beverly Hills and Beverly Crest but not West Hollywood which they show as part of central la:

                  http://projects.latimes.com/mapping-l...

                  but when the asked the public for their opinions, everyone disagreed much like we are doing here.

                    you do realize doheny is the very border between west hollywood and beverly hills..

                    in other words, its at the easternmost tip of the westside :)

                    Plus 1 for La Brea

                      FWIW 310 area code puts it at La Cienega.

                      Someone sez westside to me and I think w. of 405 largely because it's so difficult to get past in rush hour.
