Longtime works its modern Thai brief with verve and vigour. The room is warehouse glam, nicely detailed, right down to the vintage tools strung along one brick wall, and the clusters of large globes hanging among vine tendrils from the ceiling. Among the bar snacks you'll find a soft-shell crab bao and a fried chicken burger, but the menu largely hews to the classic Longrain style of Thai dishes tarted-up to share: betel leaves topped with a sticky mix of pork and peanuts, say, or a chicken-heavy salad of shredded banana flower, toasty with coconut. They're often on the sweet side of the register, and though the staff are friendly and informed, it's not the sort of place where they've got the time to craft a finely balanced meal in between ferrying draft beer and cocktails to the big tables. Embrace the sugar, then, and go out guns blazing with an espresso panna cotta, maxed-out with coconut tapioca and salted peanut caramel.
