A PIG FACE, SUPER-STICKY RICE AND SPICY SALADS AT LAOTIAN KHE-YO

At Khe-Yo, Executive Chef Soulayphet Schwader and partner Nick Bradley have joined with star-chef Marc Forgione to bring exciting Laotian-inspired Southeast Asian cuisine (has anyone ever tried Laotian before?) to TriBeCa in a warm, comfortable setting with brick walls and an industrial bar. Showcasing the best ingredients through Laotian techniques and flavors, the menu is designed for sharing and encourages guests to explore and taste a small variety of exotic dishes.

The dishes are for the adventurous only. Extremely spicy, bold and to some, somewhat scary ingredients such as bone marrow, pigs head and flowers with a few milder dishes such as poached fish and rice dishes .. and did I mention spicy? If you are adventurous you will love a fun departure from the usual menu you see everywhere!

Each wine on the concise, all-French list is available by the glass in addition to sake, beer and signature Southeast Asian-inspired specialty cocktails. Go and experience something off the beaten path and menu. Great for a cosy date or a foodie group. 

MUST TRY:

– Banana Flower Salad

– Steak Tartare with Bone Marrow

– Steamed Black Bass

Special of the day: Half a Pig Head with crispy roasted skin and Laotian herbs, rice noodles and spicy carrot dipping sauce. ONLY of foodies as the meat is extremely gamey- almost a little uric.

 WHAT TO WEAR:

The atmosphere is relaxed at sexy at Khe-Yo, so match that with a black silk shirt dress and a fun hippy chain-headband since you are traveling to far East Asia for the night.
