Are you superstitious? The owners of Thai 101 on Montague Street apparently are not. They opened their new restaurant on Friday, Aug. 13, knowing that the bustling Brooklyn Heights strip, known for its abundance of mediocre eateries, could use a place with a little spice.

Chef Narong Phuttasangharap, who cooked in the Pearl Hotel in Thailand, offers just that. His cuisine, says manager Gaew, is "real Thai with contemporary plating and garnishes." Two to try are the massaman noodles served in a spicy curry sauce with tender beef and potatoes, and "pramanow," a fillet of steamed, striped bass in garlic sauce with fresh Thai chiles, served in a banana leaf basket.

Like the menu’s mix of old and new, the restaurant’s decor blends modern furnishings with Asian antiques. While the weather is still warm, sit outside and watch the passersby who wish that, instead of stopping for pizza or a sandwich, they too had taken a lesson in Thai 101.

Thai 101 (101 Montague St. between Henry and Hicks streets in Brooklyn Heights) accepts American Express, MasterCard and Visa. Entrees: $10-$18. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner daily. For more information, call (718) 237-2594.
