Haiku Asian Bistro
56 Pondfield Rd. Bronxville, NY 914-337-5601
This cool, convivial Pan Asian hot spot has won so many plaudits in recent years that the owners have set up shop in Cross River and Mamaroneck. The cooking offers a breezy, nibbling tour of Southeast Asia, mixing and matching ingredients to create beautifully presented and often harmoniously complex flavors — prawns with Malaysian curry coconut cream; a salad with jicama, peanuts and mango; and Thai spring rolls. For the less adventuresome, there are traditional staples, like an exceptional tempura. There is a decent selection of Asian beers and sake. And here’s a thoughtful first — chopsticks for kids. -Bryan MillerHours: Mon-Th: 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m.; Fri: 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m.; Sat: noon-11 p.m.; Sun: noon-10 p.m.
