Blue Elephant

This cozy spot in downtown Clayton serves up the usual Thai suspects with flair. Roasted boneless duck breast with red curry is one of the "house specialties" -- crisp skin outside, moist, succulent and meaty inside, with a sauce that provides a nice, not-too-spicy counterbalance to sweet chunks of pineapple and tomato and fresh basil leaves. Thai barbecued chicken is a tasty, mild and b-i-g half a bird. The heat in the salmon in green curry sneaks up on you, unfolding its layers of flavor -- and that's the appeal of a Blue Elephant meal: a harmony of flavors that are simultaneously subtle and complex.
