The Pagoda also offers a deck overlooking the water (with spectacular views) but here both the fare and the building are Asian. In fact, the airy pavilion extending over the water was designed by Chinese architects who used feng shui principals to make the best use of the lovely site. Recommended dishes include the spicy Thai chicken coconut soup and the light, healthful steamed Thai dishes, including delicate fresh fish and vegetables. On the Sabbath, The Pagoda opens its nonkosher affiliate, the charming House Restaurant, just across Gdud Barak Street (Fri 1pm–midnight, Sat 1–4:30pm). The menu, prices, and phone number are the same as The Pagoda’s—the one difference is that it operates on the Sabbath (and is the best choice in town for Friday night and Saturday dining).
