As of Wednesday, you'll likely no longer have to rely on monitoring the restaurant's live webcam or end up waiting for hours to get a table at Andy Ricker's unique, super-authentic Thai spot, Pok Pok Ny, in Brooklyn. Finally, the restaurant announced on Facebook it is now accepting reservations for all hours of operation for parties of one to 12, including via OpenTable. Now, you can rest assured that you'll get your fish sauce chicken wings and some garlic and coriander-rubbed boar meat glazed in soy and sugar, described on the menu as "Northern Thai drinking food," without a big wait.
Although, we'd still recommend the non-reservation approach, and spending the hour-long wait a block down the street at Ricker's Whiskey Soda Lounge, where you can get Pok Pok wings, great craft cocktails, and nice happy hour deals.
