One of the northwest’s most eagerly anticipated arrivals, chef and owner Nittaya Parawong has debuted Nittaya’s Little Kitchen on Centennial’s Norman Rockwell Lane.
With construction delayed during the pandemic, customers can now enjoy a classic and modern Thai menu out on the patio, inside the 1,495-square-foot corner space, or take a seat at the small bar, also designed to accommodate the outdoor dining scene.
A sequel to the 11-year old Summerlin fixture Nittaya’s Secret Kitchen, recently moved into its own upgraded space, the Little Kitchen sits near to Farm Road and neighbors Cheecho’s Fajitas & Cantina, Streets of New York, and Egg Works.
Open until 1 a.m. — a rare late-night, full-service option for the neighborhood — Nittaya’s serves family-inspired recipes such as a chicken larb salad, crabmeat fried rice, “secret garden” vegetarian fare, and curries, including a salmon-avocado creation.
Asian tapas options are highlighted by crispy pork belly, the very popular ”world famous spinach salad,” tamarind shrimp, and green curry egg rolls, plus 11 entrées, with choices of crying tiger steak, garlic-basil lamb chops, a Thai barbecue Cornish game hen, and a spicy catfish.
Also available, a collection of wines served by the glass and fragrant teas from East Coast purveyor Harney & Son. Details of a scheduled happy hour have yet to be announced, but are planned from 6 to 8 p.m., Monday to Thursday.
Nittaya’s Little Kitchen, 7575 Norman Rockwell Lane, #140, 702-478-988. Open daily from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.
