New York restaurant guide. 2

Pig and Khao
In an area that is exploding
with new restaurants
Pig and Khao is one ofP& K - 3 figures and blurry chefs
the very few restaurants
that feel like it is in keep with
what the neighborhood once was

For more than a hundred years
these streets were home to
different streams of immigrants

Streets that during the 1980s
were occupied by crime,
are now so gentrified
you do not recognize them

except for Pig and Khao
It fits in

It’s on Clinton Street
The Chef is Leah
The food Filipino-Thai inspired

Always sit at the counter
and watch
the kitchen
at work
So good
P&K Bläckfisk

 

And the music in the kitchen
is always
old school hip hop
by the way
