Khao Soi ($14)
A rich coconut broth with a real current of heat in the red curry, with chicken, pickled mustard greens, cilantro, egg noodles, and crisped egg noodles on top for crunch.
Crispy Red Curry Rice Salad ($11)
"This is the spiciest dish on the menu," Cohen told us. Crisp nuggets of red curry-laced rice with pork, shallots, and peanuts; a sauce of lime juice, fish sauce, ginger, and galangal; and lettuce cups for wrapping it all up. "There's a fermented raw pork sausage this is traditionally served with," says Cohen. "We're working on it."
A partially covered outdoor seating area they're intending to keep open through the year as long as weather permits. In the corner, they're installing a tap where, for $15, you've got self-serve all-you-can-drink beer with your meal. (Expect beers to rotate; it might be PBR, might be a Brooklyn Lager...)
Grilled Sirloin ($15)
"This is my take on a dish usually made with pork neck." The grilled sirloin is served with a fiery Isan dipping sauce, with enough heat that the cabbage alongside is a necessary palate cleanser.
La Colada ($10)
Sort of a sherry piña colada: coconut, pineapple, and lime with amontillado sherry, carpano antica, and bitters.
Clinton Street Cooler ($10)
Cocchi Americano and a syrup made from Hitachino white ale, with orange blossom water and sparkling wine.
Green Mango Salad ($13)
A bed of shredded green mango, lemongrass, mint, and coriander with cashews and dried shrimp, topped with grilled chicken; the dressing includes lime, fish sauce, and chilies.
