Dining at Pig and Khao feels akin to dining at a great friend’s house—where the beer is cheap and the food is prepared by a passionate, spice-crazed chef. The electric, comfortable space pulses with 2013 Rising Star Chef Leah Cohen’s vibrant cooking—not to mention bright green walls, the thrall of an open kitchen, and thump of hip-hop music. The ambiance gets the party started, and Cohen follows through with her brand of Southeast Asian cuisine, picked up through extensive travel to Thailand, Hong Kong, and the Philippines. Few things are better than a rich and sour broth adorned with a whole fried fish or slippery noodles in a spicy red curry. Throw in Indian-spiced lamb ribs with pickled beets and cumin yogurt, and diners begin to understand the depth and soul in Cohen’s food.
