Thai food at Bambu isn't the sloppy affair it sometimes becomes at greasy pad Thai joints: The best dishes at this neighborhood nook are startlingly sophisticated, reflecting a respect for top-notch ingredients and a steady command of the grill. The restaurant hews to the Isaan style of cooking associated with Thailand's northeastern region, and the Laotian influence shows in smoky slivers of beef jerky, bowlfuls of sticky rice and wonderfully marbled beef, grilled and served with a soy-scallion dipping sauce. Don't leave without sampling the fabulous black rice pudding with coconut cream, a two-day ordeal for the kitchen and a boon for comfort-food seekers.
