For the seventh straight year, October is Dining Month on, presented by the restaurants of Potawatomi. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2013."

Combining a sushi bar with authentic Thai cooking under one roof is a Windy City trend that hadn't arrived in Milwaukee until Thai-Namite opened, according to Kim Kongsin, who owns the business with Nini Buranabunyut and Dear Panyasopa. Kongsin emphasizes that Thai-Namite is not an Asian fusion restaurant. Its Thai offerings are straight from her native country.

The kitchen produces Thai mainstays as well as some unusual items. Pad Thai ($10) is served wrapped in thin pan-fried eggs, which is more authentic than the typical plate pile presentation seen in Milwaukee restaurants.

Thai-Namite offers its signature curry ($12), featuring Mussaman sauce, with the unleavened Indian bread, roti, rather than rice.

Thai-Namite serves beer, wine and saki. Food delivery is available on orders of at least $20. editors' choice: Bangkok House
