Chef and owner Kris Yenbamroong, an LA native, was a James Beard Foundation Rising Star Chef semifinalist when he started out in 2016.
He was also a semifinalist as Best New Chef.

The late Jonathan Gold loved NIght + Market. Los Angeles magazine gives it two thumbs up.


The menu is short but sweet.

Pastrami pad kee mao (drunken noodles) caught my eye as pad kee mao is my favorite dish.

Kris's "world famous" friend chicken sandwich, northern Thai style, intrigues me.

His braised short ribs panang curry sounds inviting. Any Thai restaurant worth their salt has sticky rice. It's on the menu at Night + Market.

You have the OPTION of either ordering INDIVIDUALLY OR FAMILY STYLE.
