Khong River House 

James Beard award semifinalist Khong River House is cooking up a limited-time menu for this weekend’s Thai New Year, or “Songkran.” Timed to Thailand's annual festivities, the à la carte menu will be served from Saturday, April 13 to Tuesday, April 16 and can be coupled with a handsome bottomless bar. Chef Bee's holiday menu will feature three Southeast Asian staples: spiced chicken steamed in banana leafs; vermicelli noodles with coconut milk, pineapple, and shrimp; and a northern-style ground beef salad. The venue will also nod its colorful heritage by passing out “forgive and forget confession cards,” allowing guests to enter the Thai New Year with a clean slate. The cards represent a very special Songkran tradition in which individuals approach friends and family for forgiveness of any earlier wrongdoings. That alone sounds worth a trip to us. 1661 Meridian Ave., Miami Beach, 305-763-8147
