Uncle Boons Sister — the casual takeout restaurant from the Michelin-starred team at Uncle Boons — starts serving simple Thai fare in Nolita this weekend.

Chef-owners Ann Redding and Matt Danzer have created a menu that’s different from Uncle Boons. Here, the tiny counter-service space at 203 Mott Street, near Spring Street, has dishes like pad Thai, fried chicken with an herb salad and sticky rice, beef short rib with a basil stir fry, and tom yum soup with oxtail. See the full menu below.

The menu is divided into snacks and soups, plates, sides, sweets, and drinks — and all of it is priced lower than a meal at Uncle Boons. Bigger plates here range from $9 for a Thai herbal sausage in a bun to $16 for a crab omelette with a yellow curry sauce. Sweets include a cone version of Uncle Boons’ popular coconut sundae, while the drink menu is more limited. Sister serves just two beers, plus non-boozy drinks like Thai ice tea and a sparkling kaffir limeade.

Redding and Danzer closed their old-school American dinner counter Mr. Donahue’s in the space in August after it didn’t work out. They decided to replace it with Uncle Boons Sister, since the husband-wife duo had been considering doing a takeout sibling for their Thai hit for a while.

Uncle Boons Sister will open on Saturday and Sunday for dinner only. It will be open for lunch and dinner, seven days a week, starting next Monday. Stay tuned for photos and more.
