Following a guru usually means giving up things you love, like meat, booze, and all but a small patch of your hair. Get the guru and give up nothing, at L'Thai West
An oddly modern zen-staurant with soft carpeting, a backlit wall of red/orange polka dots, mad plants, and a waterfall resembling a giant red iPod, L'Thai's run by a real-estate maven turned certified-organic food visionary who nonetheless doesn't discourage delicious animal flesh (there's plenty of it) or alcohol ("Nothing is omitted; sometimes poison is good for you"). Corn-fed pork, grass-fed beef, and free-range chicken play into starters like Kow-Tom Gai soup (chicken, rice, ginger, scallions, fried garlic), Tod-Man Goong (ground shrimp & chicken w/ Thai chili), and the rice paper-rolled crabmeat, shrimp, cream cheese, and sweet citrus-sauce Por-Pia Poo -- delicious, despite sounding like a children's book about overcoming grossness to achieve self-confidence. Surprisingly cheap entrees include Priaw-Wharn Goong (batter-fried tiger prawns), Nua Pad Khing (sliced flank steak w/ fresh ginger julienne), chef specials (Sea Bass Gingerine, Basil Lamb Chops, Three Flavors Flounder), and a "Curry of the Day" (hint: it's pronounced "Stefan", even though it's spelled "Stephen").
For right now, L'Thai's BYOB, with organic beer & wine on the way. In order that you "Stop your agendas" and "be in the moment" the owner discourages cell phones -- which is good, because if the more alarming studies are right, chronic usage is a surefire way to lose even that last precious patch of hair.
