One of my favorite SoHo restaurants, Peep (177 Prince Street) features Thai-fusion food at reasonable prices. They serve a mussel-curry soup—with white wine, spinach, caramelized onion and wild ginger—for just $5. Grilled chicken with a Thai spice-marinade and black sesame chili sauce is a delicious entrée ($13). Complete reviews by Time Out New York and The New York Times are posted on Peep’s webpage.
But the most unusual distinction of the restaurant is a feature of the bathrooms. In that dim and intimate setting is a two-way mirror that lets customers observe the whole of the restaurant without being seen themselves (hence the restaurant’s name). Peep offers a relaxed place to dine while enjoying the galleries, shops, bars and shops around Prince, Thompson and Sullivan Streets.
